North Korea has replaced the official Song sung at state events, replacing the "Hymn of General Kim Jong Il" with the "Hymn of General Kim Jong Un." The move is seen as an attempt by Kim Jong Un to solidify loyalty around himself and break out of his father and grandfather's shadows. Citizens will also be required to end events with another song titled "We Will Defend General Kim Jong Un at the Cost of Our Lives." The change in song lyrics has received mixed reactions, with some residents expressing frustration over the severe food shortage in the country.
