Look at the top ranked North Korean officers!

Just how many awards can one person have??? - As many as can fit on your uniform!!!

It also seems that "suspension" isn´t in the korean language. Too much screwback stuff doesn´t look so good on open neck uniforms.

Here is another walking christmas tree.

Two suspension medals in the bottom on the right side which I assume relates to the Korean Liberation war in 1950-1953, as I have two such ones at home that look exactly the same, and some on the left side (two looks Bulgarian),

I love these pics! I wonder what happens if these guys get near power lines!

Excellent examples of many NK orders, though! :cool:

That is the highest order of the North Korean Peoples Republic, the Order of Kim Il Sung. It outranks even the hero and labour hero, and was instituted on Kim Il Sung's 60th birthday. It is so rare that I haven't been able to find a decent picture of one, but it shows the face of Kim Il Sung.

How about these guys. They look like freaking Christmas trees!

I'm curious how much a jacket like this one can weight?

Note the uniform has no pockets wahtsoever, I guess this way the space is utilized to the fullest!
