North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been taking fire from all sides while trying to fill his father's rather large shoes.

Economic reforms set by Kim Jong Un were met with stiff resistance from the Workers Party and military officials.  Kim ordered academics to come up with proposals for small market-friendly policies.  When the party received the reports, they were furious and asked for those responsible to be punished.

Kim Jong Un was forced to treat them as "reactionaries" and is presumed to have punished those who had refused his plans.
