In his new image – with hair combed up – he appeared at a party meeting on Wednesday, February 18th. Western journalists wrote that hairstyle in shape resembles a Brylcreemed flat top.
The change is emphasized even more by the half-shaved eyebrows of Kim Jong-un.
People magazine wrote that the North Korean leader new hairstyle resembles the one that back in the 90s was rocked by Hollywood actor Will Smith. In order to demonstrate the similarities, the publication showed their photos side to side.
In March of 2014 it was reported that the North Korean college students were mandated to wear the same haircut as Kim Jong-un. Girls, in turn, were recommended to choose a hairstyle like the one worn by the wife of the Northern Korea leader’s wife – Ri Sol-ju.
