In a move experts say aims to boost the cult of personality surrounding North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, his portrait has been placed alongside images of his father and grandfather in a public place for the first time. A portrait of Kim joined those of national founder Kim Il Sung, and his son and successor Kim Jong Il, at the Central Cadres Training School of the Workers’ Party of Korea in Pyongyang. Portraits of the elder Kims are displayed in every public building and private home.
