Kim Jong-un has apparently had it with North Koreans expressing their individuality. Yes, the already infamously regimented and regulated culture of North Korea is getting too wild and crazy for the Dear Leader. Now, he wants every man in North Korea to cut their hair like his.
The state-sanctioned guidelines were introduced in the capital Pyongyang about two weeks ago, media reports say. They are now being rolled out across the country – although some people have reservations about getting the look.
Although this isn’t as drastic a change as you might think. Because people were already only given a few ways to cut their hair before.
It seems that haircuts have been state-approved in North Korea for some time – until now people were only allowed to choose from 18 styles for women and 10 for men.
But now, it’s the Kim Jong or death. I guess he’s trying to be The Rachel of the 2010s.
