Five years have been passed. Nothing changed with the North Korean politics. The North Korean people are still institutionally forced to pay absolute loyalty, obedience to the sole leader Kim Jong-un as the warrior of ‘Chosun Revolution.’ Ever since Kim Jong-un purged and executed his powerful uncle Jang Song-thack in 2013, the evaluation on him was plummeted and the sentiment of despair and resistance got higher.

Followings are voices of the North Koreans via phone and emails. (ASIAPRESS provided Chinese mobile phones into North Korea for communication)

“(He) killed his uncle and furthermore step brother (Kim Jong-nam). Fearful! He went far beyond human ethics.” ; Criticism on morality

“That greenhorn really knows anything about politics or real world? He just mimics his grandfather (Kim Il-sung).” ; Resistance

“Life is hard because of forced burden for restoration of flood or labor for farm support. Shortage of power supply and running water is getting worse.” ; Complaint about economy

“Arrested too easily for trivial mistakes. Officials are shivering because of too many purges.” ; Fear

These are the evaluations on Kim Jong-un and his regime by the ordinary people and the Party officials.

It is believed that the neighboring people totally turned against the regime because of their leader’s weird behavior toward in and out of his country. (But the privileged circle would not be included)
