Number 6 Kim Jong-nam
Such was the case of his paternal half-brother Kim Jong-nam. Kim Jong-nam was exiled in 2003 and continued to speak out against the regime. However, they were released after it was found that they were under the impression everything was part of a TV prank.
Number 5 Control
Because all major aspects of life in North Korea are state-controlled, the country is basically cut off from the rest of the world. There’s no media outlet that’s operating independently from the state. There are only four official TV channels, which have produced some peculiar “breaking news” pieces. There’s a domestic-only network called Kwangmyong which features a number of websites. North Korean inhabitants can’t travel abroad or even make phone calls outside the country.
Number 4 Work
The case of Otto Warmbier is often cited as an example. He was an American college student being stuck for 17 months.They kept his condition hidden for nearly a year.
In 2006, the country announced that it had successfully conducted its first test. Subsequent tests earned them various international trade restrictions. It’s theoretically capable of reaching any region of the United States’s mainland.
Number 2 US Relations
Tensions reached a fever pitch in 2017 and 2018. However, there have also been some significant breakthroughs in communication. In June, the two met at a summit in Singapore and signed a declaration of commitment to peace. While a deal has yet to be reached, the fact that the parties involved are willing to communicate has been described as a step in the right direction.
These aspects are included in children’s textbooks. State media describes him as a “great person born of heaven” just like his father and grandfather. Those who criticized his succession were punished and sent to re-education camps. There have been recent breaks in tension, but for the time being, little rocket man is definitely still someone to worry about.
