'Dear leader haircut' forced on NK students



North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's indoctrination is bordering on paranoia in its attempt to make every man have the same look, Radio Free Asia reported Tuesday.

Since about two weeks ago, men are allowed to have the "Dear Leader Kim Jong-un" haircut only, according to the source cited by the paper.

The state-ordered "fashion guideline" is met by a nationwide backlash, although it is vain in its protest attempt, it explained.

"Our leader's haircut is very particular, if you will. It doesn't always go with everyone since everyone has different face and head shapes," the source was quoted as saying.

"It started from capital Pyongyang, and now spreading all across the country," the source added.

Another source, a former Pyongyang resident now living in China, said the style itself was shunned as it resembled Chinese smugglers. "Until the mid-2000, we called it the ‘Chinese smuggler haircut,'" the source was quoted as saying.

북, 대학생에 김정은 헤어 스타일 강요

 

북한당국이 대학생들에게 김정은의 머리 모양을 따라 하도록 강요하고 있다고 자유북한방송 (Radio Free Asia)이 보도했다.

함경남도의 한 주민은 “원수님 머리 모양은 매우 독특해서 얼굴 형태에 따라 어울리는 사람도 있지만 그렇지 않은 사람도 있는데 대학당국에서 당의 뜻이라며 이런 머리모양을 하도록 해  불만의 목소리가 나오고 있다”고 전했다.

“머리모양을 강제하기 시작한 것은 이달 중순경부터이며 특정 지역이나 일부 학교에서만 시행되는 것이 아니라 평양에서 시작되어 이제는 전국적으로 실시되고 있다”고 말했다. 

중국에 나온 평양의 한 주민 소식통은 “2000년대 중반까지만 해도 그런 머리모양을 한 젊은이들에게는 중국인처럼 머리를 깎았다고 해서 ‘밀수꾼머리’라고 불렀다”고 말했다.
