80th Birthday of Kim Il Sung. There's a version of the 10 Won (KM65) that's supposed to depict Kim's birthplace.
Inspired by Ho Chi Minh's successful use of guerrilla warfare and espionage against the Americans, Kim Il-Sung stepped up the use of subversive tactics against the South Koreans and their American allies across the DMZ. On January 21, 1968, Kim sent a 31-man special forces unit into Seoul to assassinate South Korean President Park Chung-Hee. The North Koreans got to within 800 meters of the presidential residence, the Blue House, before they were stopped by South Korean police.
North Korea’s national animal is celebrated in a towering statue in Pyongyang, depicted by a flying horse carrying two Korean workers on its back. Called the “Chollima,” which translates to “thousand-mile horse,” the animal has great meaning to North Koreans, despite its Chinese origins. Alluding to the country’s determination, grit, and pace in rebuilding after the Korean War, the strength and speed of the flying Chollima represents how quickly the country was able to get back on track. As a special nod to the ability of the national animal, the country’s football team is also named after the flying horse.
