On July 17, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, third of the Kim dynasty that has ruled the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea since the communist revolution in 1953, earned a new title. His late father and grandfather have permanent titles, even after death, but that doesn’t mean Kim Jong Un isn’t getting his fair share of duties and honors. In fact, Kim Jong Un just got a new title: Marshal of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, AKA commander-in-chief.
Here’s the list of honorifics currently being worn by Kim Jong Un at the moment: Marshal of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, First chairman of the National Defense Commission, First secretary of the Workers’ Party, Chairman of the party’s Central Military Commission, Member of the Presidium of the party’s Political Bureau, and Supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army. The majority of these titles came to Kim Jong Un when he was named his father’s official successor.
