Kim Il-sung
By Vickie Chao
  

1     Democratic People's Republic of Korea, a.k.a. North Korea, is one of the world's poorest, least-understood, and most isolated countries. And there is nothing about it that is remotely democratic. Despite its name, it is an absolute totalitarian state.
 
2     Founded on September 9, 1948, this mysterious nation occupies the northern half of the Korean Peninsula. For more than six decades now, it has never given up the idea of overtaking its southern neighbor, Republic of Korea, a.k.a. South Korea. The two countries, separated by the famous 38th parallel north, are the opposite of two extremes. South Korea is prosperous. North Korea is destitute. South Korea is industrialized and technologically advanced. North Korea does not even have a stable supply of electricity. People in South Korea can freely express their opinions without fear of retribution. People in North Korea are better off keeping their thoughts to themselves.
 
3     To comprehend what kind of country North Korea really is, we must first become familiar with one name -- Kim Il-sung.
