Fascinated by Great Idea and Unusual Leadership Ability
-The Juche idea should be followed by all. It was created in Korea but it is an idea of mankind, a world's idea.-
This was said by the first International Kim Il Sung Prize Winner Shuhachi Inoue who was Honorary Director General of the International Institute of the Juche Idea.
Shuhachi Inoue changed his career from economist to Juche idea follower, as he was fascinated by the Juche idea created by the great leader Kim Il Sung.
Man is the master of everything and decides everything. Man is the most precious and powerful being in the world....
As he delved into the quintessence of the Juche idea, he had an urge to visit Korea, the home of the great idea.
Inoue went deep into his works and admired his ideological and theoretical achievements in developing the Juche idea in depth and his wise leadership.
After all, he wrote tens of books and articles. He received a lot of telephone calls and questions.
-What kind of man is His Excellency Kim Jong Il?-
Though aged, Inoue regarded it as his mission to give an answer to the question.
Visiting Korea several times, he made a deeper study of famous works of Kim Jong Il and called at the units visited by him for his field guidance.
In February 2002, Inoue published a book titled "General Secretary Kim Jong Il, the Sun of the 21st Century" on the occasion of his birth anniversary.
In the book he wrote that the current of the world cannot be understood without knowing the reality of Korea led by General Secretary Kim Jong Il with devotion and her guiding idea--the Juche idea--and highly praised him as the sun of the 21st century.
The heart of Shuhachi Inoue stopped beating but his book "General Secretary Kim Jong Il, the Sun of the 21st Century" is still popular among many people.
