North Korean state media have issued a report denying that the country’s leaders have mythical powers, a possible signal that current leader Kim Jong Un is attempting to undo the deification of his predecessors.

In North Korea, Kim Jong Un, his father Kim Jong Il and his grandfather Kim Il Sung enjoy god-like status built up by a state-driven cult of personality.

Some of the official Kim myths that have been popularized in international media include Kim Jong Un being able to drive at age three, and Kim Jong Il shooting a 38 under par round of golf with five holes-in-one in his first attempt at the sport.
