A mural depicting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was completed for the first time in the capital Pyongyang, and is said to be promoting idolization by showing that he has the same authority as his grandfather and father.
North Korea's state-run Korean Central Television reported on the 17th that a mural depicting General Secretary Kim Jong-un was completed at the Mangyongdae Revolutionary Academy in the capital Pyongyang, and that the completion ceremony was held on the 19th.
The mural depicts a smiling General Secretary Kim surrounded by the same red scarf around his neck.
Mangyongdae Revolutionary Academy is a place to train senior officials of the Workers' Party of Korea and the military, and state television emphasizes that "an immortal monument to the eternal history of great history has been completed," and that students and faculty members have strengthened their beliefs.
According to Radio Press, which analyzes North Korean media reports, it was reported last year that a mural depicting General Secretary Kim was completed in rural areas, but it was the first time in the capital Pyongyang.
The Korean news agency Union News reported that Kim Jong-un's regime has been in power for more than 10 years, and that it has gained authority on a par with his grandfather and father, and that he is spurring idolization.
