ABSTRACT

This study analyses the succession of power to Kim Jeong-eun as the power of Kim Il-sung was passed to his son Kim Jeong-il. To analyse the power succession of North Korea, this study focuses on father-to-son succession of power for three generations. In conclusion, it feels unstable for North Korea to have a fast power transfer. The transmission of power to a son making his first debut to the political world implies Kim Jeung-il has a fatal condition or disease. Such intention to transmit power to his son is interpreted as a means to maintain a stable political system and firm control.
