Kim Jong Un

In this July 27, 2013 photo, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un waves to war veterans during a mass military parade celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Korean War armistice in Pyongyang, North Korea. From “Saturday Night Live” on Oct. 11, 2014 spoofs to the wild theories of journalists across the globe trying to parse his five-week absence from the public eye, the 30-something leader of North Korea has captured as many headlines as he did when he threatened to nuke his enemies last year. This bewildering ability to command attention by doing nothing says a lot about the North’s total mastery of a propaganda apparatus that puts Kim at the center of everything.
