This is a common thing I see whenever the cult of personality of the Kim family is brought up online either on YouTube or elsewhere is how "wacky" North Korea is depicted and how people in the West consider this cult of personality to be silly or goofy with many inserting whatever meme or online perception they have of this country.
It's only goofy and silly to people if they don't understand the power of both propaganda and the culture of both Koreas. Korean culture is very collectivist and is based on Confucianist ideas. This is true in both North Korea and is true in South Korea even though South Korea is a democracy while North Korea still remains a dictatorship. We in the West might laugh at this but in reality I think this is just par for the course of having a very Confucianist society which places respect in the family both with your real family and within the nation. South Korea used to have this type of authoritarian rule (not to the extent of North Korea) until the 1980s and a lot of it comes down the Confucianist idea of Familism. That is why even among defectors many of them were genuinely sad when Kim Il Sung died in 1994. Not to paint a broad-brush on all Koreans here but it all boils down to Korean culture and East Asian collectivist culture both seen in the two Koreas and in Japan too.
Not defending the DPRK or its government, I'm just saying.
