The Wider Image: The adoration of Kim Jong Un
North Koreans stage a demonstration of devotion to their leader Kim Jong Un at least once a year, in a large ceremonial square in Pyongyang. "Mansae!" the people call as they parade past the 33-year old, who stands on a balcony above them: "Live long!" This December, Kim will mark six years in power. In that time he has purged or executed around 340 people, according to the Institute for National Security Strategy, a think tank of South Korea's National Intelligence Service (NIS). The people on parade carry flowers including North Korea's national blooms, Kimilsungia and Kimjongilia, which were specially created in honour of Kim's grandfather and father, Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il. North Korea is the only socialist country to have passed power down the family line. Images of former presidents are pinned on the left side of every jacket and dress. They are worn there to be close to the wearers' hearts. In private conversations, some North Koreans quietly lament the shortcomings of their system: It's too bureaucratic, takes too long to get things done, is disorganised, they say. But few dare to openly criticise the Supreme Leader. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj SEARCH "PYONGYANG PARADE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY.
