Same same, but different


I’m sure I’m not the only one realizing this but if you look closely enough, there is a resemblance between the three leaders from the Kim Dynasty. Similar haircuts, similar similar style of attire and even similar personas. It is said that Kim Jong-un was ‘encouraged’, or ordered to put on weight to more closely resemble his revered grandfather. This deliberate act of dressing the same, is to enhance and enforce the legitimacy of the Kim Dynasty over North Korea, a constant reminder that the Kim family is a great, irreplaceable and superior entity in their own right, one that entitles them to demand much adoration and respect from its fellow citizens.
