Kim Jong-un orders North Koreans to worship 'Kimjongunism' in 'unprecedented' power move

North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-un wants to be worshipped with his own ideology.

In an attempt to break free from the shadow of his predecessors, the dictator is pushing ‘Kimjongunism’ which hails him as a ‘Great Leader’.

Portraits of his father and grandfather in the capital city of Pyongyang have been taken down to present Kim John-un as unrivalled in his position of power.

The 37-year-old’s grandfather, Kim Il-sung founded the country in 1948 and became the third longest-serving political leader of the 20th century.

According to South Korea’s spy agency though, Kim hopes his image and reputation can surpass that of the original Premier and his dad, Kim Jong-il who followed.

Reports claim the term ‘Kimjongunism’ is being promoted in government circles and where state media is calling Kim ‘Great Leader’, which has previously only been used in reference to Kim Il-sung.

Pushing a self-glorifying ideology is a major, unprecedented step away from the usual humility that has underpinned North Jorea’s leadership, say experts.

Fyodor Tertitskiy from Kookmin University in Seoul, told NK News: “The signal cannot be clearer.

“Kim Jong-un does not like certain aspects of the system that his father and grandfather have forged — specifically the one tying the successor’s legitimacy to his deference to his predecessors. The current leader wants to be his own autocrat.”
