North Korea after Kim Jong-il, April 19

Uk Heo

The death of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il had an immense impact on the lives of many North Korean citizens. What impact will this event have on the country’s government? Will his son, Kim Jong un, be able to gain the confidence of North Korea’s military leaders? How will North/South relations be affected? Will the country’s people who sacrificed much under Kim Jong-il accept the same austerity under Kim Jong un?
