Kim Jong-un said Monday that he wants “more style” and that he hopes to have a “cool” fashion sense, as he seeks to change the status quo with his government’s new “style” policy.
Kim’s remarks came at a fashion event in Pyongyang.
“I want to make a more fashionable fashion sense,” he said, according to the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
“I hope that more people can wear fashionable clothes and feel that it is fashionable and beautiful.”
A few weeks ago, Kim also made an appearance at a popular fashion show in Seoul with fashion designers who showed off their styles in a fashion show.
The new policy aims to help the ruling Workers’ Party build up the public image of the ruling family as a stylish, cultured and stylish people.
In January, Kim was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a prestigious award bestowed on top leaders of the world.
According to KCNA, Kim said he was “extremely happy” with the new policy, and that it will help the people of the country feel “more comfortable and be more confident.”
The “style policy” will include “cute” and “feminine” clothes and “a style that has an attitude of coolness, dignity and good manners.”
The “style that has the attitude of coolerness, modesty and good sense” will be made “by the people themselves,” the official KCNA said.
