The Little Puppet, Kim Jong Un

5 months have passed since Kim Jong Un took over the leadership of North korea after the former leader Kim Jong Il passed away. Then, what kind of changes took place in North Korea during that 5 months?
Under the dictatorship, everything including political system and economy greatly depends on the characteristics of its leader, and it is no exaggeration to say that the type of leader can determine the fate of that country.
However, although 5months already have passed since Kim Jong Un succeeded the power, he's been following the same old path of the past and bad political practices. Actually, this was pretty predictable, because he never had any proper training before he succeeded the power and he's still a kid in his 20s who is lacking of experience
Therefore, Kim Jong Un is the top leader in name only and he's just a puppet who's sandwiched between Kim Jong il's experienced old guards.
