#9. Kim Jong-un
North Korea’s hydrogen bomb test, missile launches and threats of nuclear attacks come from a
government hampered by sanctions. A leader uses propaganda and force to secure worship from his
people. Under the current Kim’s watch, North Korean entertainment has evolved from being a mere
conveyor of ideology to a tool used to shape society. For example, recent TV content
promotes the idea of family, community and the use of technology for patriotism concepts unexplored
in older movies.
