North Korea Leadership Watch

Research and Analysis on the DPRK Leadership


I have revised the entries on some key DPRK institutions, as well as on the Morningstar Generals, Kim Jong-chol and Kim Jong-un.  If you visit the blog’s other pages (the ones on the banner) you will also find these revisions.  If you find a broken link somewhere, please let me know.  Also, we’re taking requests from the bandstand; if there is a Party-State-Army organ or institution,  or a North Korean elite about whom you you would like to know more, let me know through the comments section here or email.

On another note, readers may notice that I have not written a post on Kim Jong-il’s  activities during the month of January (and a couple of concerts he attended at the end of December).  I decided to put them into one whole product which will include the usual NK press reports, KCTV media coverage, and many, many photos.  I will also publish a look at General-Secretary Kim’s 2009 public activities, around the same time (probably late next week).
