North Korean Men must get Dear Leader-Hairstyle

David Guttenfelder postet seit einem Jahr Bilder aus Nord Korea auf seinem Instragram, vor allem seine Bilder von den Hairstyles of North-Korea werden immer wieder durchs Netz gereicht, hier die Damen, da die Herren. Für letztere hat sich das jetzt mit der Haarfreiheit ohnehin erledigt. Neue Anordnung vom Supreme Leader: One Hair to rule them all.

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.
