Why men’s Kim Jong Un hairstyle requirement is unlikely true

Recent visitors to North Korea say no evidence of new hairstyle rumor

Reports suggesting the North Korean government has directly ordered all male college students to adopt haircuts similar to Kim Jong Un are unlikely true, frequent visitors to North Korea told NK News on Thursday.

The story, which emerged in an article published by the Washington DC-based Radio Free Asia (RFA), said on Tuesday that an order for young men to imitate Kim Jong Un’s hairstyle was made two weeks ago and was expected to be strictly enforced – something regular visitors were unable to corroborate.
