    Staying quiet [about a movie that mocks Kim Jong Un] would be an act of cowardice and defeat – that ‘violating’ the sacredness of the Kim family and the leadership of the North Korean people is OK. That is not an option for [the Kim regime].

    [Kim Jong Un] is so tightly guarded. But the more practical concern is the debasement of Kim's standing and legitimacy. His youth, lack of experience, lack of secure contacts and friendships with foreign leaders put him in a precarious position. He has to earn the respect and trust of the older military and Korean Worker’s Party leaders.
