In addition to the prevalent weird prohibitions imposed on the North Koreans by their Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, a new series of bans on skinny jeans, mullets, branded T-shirts, and piercings have been introduced.

Kim Jong-un’s warning message to Anti-Socialists people in North Korea.
The recent crackdown comes in synchronization with Kim Jong-un’s warning message. According to the reports, Kim Jong-un in a letter to the labor organizations of North Korea vehemently stated that
“The struggle against the anti-socialist and non-socialist practices is a do-or-die battle to defend the working-class purity and lifeline of our style of socialism.”
Earlier this month, there were only mere speculations of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, banning skinny jeans and the items mentioned above.
But the speculations turned true and gained an official tag after a press release of the Rodong Sinmun.
The Rodong Sinmun is a newspaper agency that also happens to be the official mouthpiece of the North Korean Government & Kim Jong-un.
According to Yonhap News Agency, the Rodong Sinmun, with the notification of the new bans, laid out justification by terming them as the attempt to prevent invasion of capitalistic culture into North Korea.
The recent prohibitions by Kim Jong-un will prevent the citizens from wearing skinny or ripped jeans or branded T-Shirts, having fashionable hairstyles such as mullets, spikes, and even dyed hair.
As per the new laws imposed on North Korean citizens, men and women will ONLY be allowed to opt for a hairstyle from the 215 hairstyles authorized by Kim Jong-un’s administration.
Besides the hairstyles and fashioned wearables, the citizens of North Korea from now onwards would be prohibited from practices such as piercing.
The statement from the Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un, and the Workers Party of Korea reads,
“History teaches us a crucial lesson that a country can become vulnerable and eventually collapse like a damp wall regardless of its economic and defense power if we do not hold on to our own lifestyle.”
It further adds,” We must be wary of even the slightest sign of the capitalistic lifestyle and fight to get rid of them.”
To prevent the violation of the newly imposed ban on Skinny Jeans and other so-called ‘Capitalistic’ fashion items and practices, the Socialist Patriotic Youth League members ensure the obedience of North Koreans to the socialistic behavior.
Apart from ensuring obedience to such similar laws, the Socialist Patriotic Youth League serves as the only prominent Youth group in North Korea.
