N Korea Stars Calling Kim Jong-un 'Supreme Commander'
Kim Jon-un, the son of late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, has been addressed by the state media in the country as the "Supreme Commander", a title held by his father.
"We vow with bleeding tears to call Kim Jong-un our supreme commander, our leader," the North's Rodong newspaper of the Workers' Party of Korea said in an editorial, as cited by Bloomberg.
According to the author of the editorial, Kim Jong Un should move forward on a path of self-reliance, while continuing the teachings of Kim Jong-il, whose death was announced on Monday.
Kim Jong-un, who is believed to be in his late 20s, has already been referred to as the "great successor" of his father by North Korea's state news agency.
Kim Jong-il led the communist nation since the death of his father in 1994, and inherited the leadership of the country from him.
Shortly after he came to power, a severe famine caused by faulty economic reforms and poor harvests left an estimated two million people dead.
His regime has been harshly criticized for violations of human rights and was internationally isolated because if its pursuit of nuclear weapons.
