North Korea Kim Jong Il Making the Myth
In this Sunday Oct. 9, 2011, a North Korean cashier helps a customer at Pyongyang Department Store No. 1 in downtown Pyongyang, North Korea. Outside the window is a monument to the late president Kim Il Sung. A quasi-religious mystique surrounding the Kim family has been developed over two generations, dating back to "eternal president" Kim Il Sung. (AP Photo/David Guttenfelder)
