Men in North Korea are now required to get the same haircut as their leader Kim Jong-un, it is reported.

 

The state-sanctioned guidelines were introduced in the capital Pyongyang about two weeks ago, media reports say. It is now being rolled out across the country - although some people have reservations about getting the look.

 

"Our leader's haircut is very particular, if you will," one source tells Radio Free Asia. "It doesn't always go with everyone since everyone has different face and head shapes."

 

Meanwhile, a North Korean now living in China says the look is actually unpopular at home because people think it resembles Chinese smugglers. "Until the mid-2000s, we called it the 'Chinese smuggler haircut'," the Korea Times reports.

How much validity can we attribute to anything reported about NK?  I mean, we're on the receiving end of as much propaganda as they are, and from their perspective if they ever saw our "news" I'm sure they'd question it.

Female comrades are happy :) I did not like his hair cut style though, it is Hitler's haircut, snobby for a Communist dictator  :)

It's not just nuclear weapons proliferating on the Korean peninsula these days. In a move that for once is not considered a threat to regional and global security, the North Korean government has recommended a relatively generous range of 28 hairstyles for its citizens, claiming that they are "the most comfortable" styles and capable of warding off the corrupting effects of capitalism, according to ifeng.com, a news website run by Hong Kong's Phoenix TV network.

 

Pictures can be seen on the walls of hair salons around the country showing the approved styles for men and women. Spiky hair is forbidden, as are quiffs

it is Hitler's haircut

 

No it's not, at all!?  It's nothing like Hitler's side parting

 

longer hair on top with a center parting and his head completely shaved at the sides, a style popular in the West among teenage fans of bands such as Pearl Jam and the Lemonheads in the early 1990s

 

Nope!

I sure hope they'd question it.

 

Our "news" is full of crap and lies.

The hair of the country's young men should be less than 5 cm long and they should have a haircut once every 15 days as longer hair apparently takes away nutrition from their brains

 

Looking at many great thinkers and scientists of the past century, this is the biggest lump of excrement I've heard. If they said it looks more professional I'd be a bit more understanding.

Not in public he didn't.  You don't get to make derogatory comments about the Dear Leader's haircut and live to tell the tale.

 

Or maybe that's why he's now living in China.

This Kim Jong Un wasn't leader then, i'm sure he was fair game as long as you worshiped Kim Jong Il
