It seems that the world's favorite dictator's haircut, known as the Chinese smuggler haircut, is now going to be enforced by the fashion police. Literally. They already had a list of approved hair styles and a TV show to name and shame those who don't comply, but now things are getting entirely too silly... or are they?

There is some debate regarding the authenticity of this story. Some media suggest that it's very unlikely, while others seem to state it as factual. Some talk about all men having to follow the new rules, others say it's only aimed at students.

Regardless of who is right, this story is a great example of Poe's Law in action. North Korea is so controversial in its policies that it's basically impossible to be sure one way or another.

Well done, KJU, for confusing the international media so hard. Well done indeed!

More Western propaganda. You'll notice from the alleged choice of 10 men's, Kim Jong's isn't even on it.

This is the Western media trying to make out North Koreans are oppressed and need 'liberating'.

Well, that list (or variations thereof) comes from before Kim Jong-un's times, so it makes sense he wouldn't be on it. It makes sense he'd want to change things to avoid changing his own hairstyle.

Wasn't there a program aired a while ago called something like "Let's all cut our hair in a manner which glorifies socialism' or something?

The number of wacky things and half-truths which come out of North Korea means I find it equally believable that it is both mandatory and forbidden to cut your hair like the Supreme leader.

What hair styles are approved for people over 30?
Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

A cursory Google image search for "old North Korean man" resulted mostly in pictures of Kim Jong-un. I suspect that it's illegal to be old in North Korea.

Bottom left has a capitalist pig dog haircut. He should be shot. I imagine they put that one in just to test people.
