North Korea Issues New Stamps for the New Year

The DPRK, North Korea, has released new stamps for 2019. Yonhap News (YNA is a South Korean News Organization) shows one of the stamps. It is for use only in North Korea, so getting one would be rather difficult and costly.

4. Public documents, which include stamps, are pretty much restricted to the *ahem* greatness of their

greatness of their nation

il douche will likely never get on one, because he doesn't fit in that category
I have two sets of North Korean stamps (bought in Gaeseong 2006) and they are mostly agriculture, military and industry drawings: a North Korean boot stepping on the USA, North Korean missiles being launched at South Korea and the USA, harvests of golden wheat, etc

6. I preferred this wider view of the scene in the video


(Source- Channel A News Top Ten 01.01.2019)

The room's decor makes a few public relations/propaganda points. The tradition of the communist dynasty's leadership is the backdrop. Kim's affect is to resemble his grandfather, whose regime was not changed by the Korean war with the US and allied United Nations Forces. So the continuity of the dynasty is reflected. Secondly, he not only emulates his father's pose, but continues his work, with respect to the nuclear legacy and bargaining with it for a better life for North Korea (as depicted in the new year's stamp). The books reflect a repository of knowledge and experience. The west is prone to scoff at North Koreans, who succeeded in building a nuclear weapons and ballistic missile infrastructure. The sofa is empty, symbolizing lack of dialogue.

According to the Channel A News analysis by Tae Yong Ho, the North Korean defector, Kim's posture, clothes, and presentation represented an exceptional transformation from the his usual New Year's routine, which typically has a very regimented and militant ambiance. In fact, the program suggested it was borrowed from the style reflected in White House settings with the pictures of the founders of the republic in the background.

It was debated whether Kim or his sister came up with the format.

The official recording of the new year's speech appears to have started at 0003 01012019 local. Yet the thirty minute speech was over at 0053. They left a clock on the mantle so the passage of time was noted. Either Kim took breaks or some other parts were edited out. The edited recording of the speech was broadcast at 0900.
