One song released first on Daily NK in May starts with the words “step, step, let’s march gallantly,” and also mentions “General Kim.”Most people apparently know that “General Kim” actually means Kim Jong Il’s third son, Jong Woon, but many people reportedly know him as “Jong Hoon.” The source said that idolization teaching for cadres of the Party is ongoing. There was a public notice sent to secretaries of primary party committees, propagation secretaries and organizing secretaries recently which said that the appearance of Kim Jong Woon was like that of Kim Il Sung when he fought against Japan. The source released the people’s atmosphere, “Secretaries of Party Cells and members of the Party have not yet been directly educated about the successor. Those who were lectured to by the authorities talked about the succession sincerely, but others around the jangmadang said skeptically that they are not sure whether or not a General in his 30s can solve our difficulties.” Successor Almost Revealed to Hyesan By Daily NK – 2009.06.23 5:09pm There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest News RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article?
