Kim Il-sung or Kim Il Sung was the leader of North Korea from its establishment in 1948 until his death in 1994. He held the posts of Premier from 1948 to 1972 and President from 1972 to 1994.


North Korea’s founding president Kim il-Sung was embalmed in 1994 by the Russian embalming A-team and laid to rest, under the glare of spotlights, in Kumsusan Palace of the Sun. Formerly the official residence of North Korea’s head of state, the palace was transformed into a mausoleum in 1994, a renovation that is thought to have cost up to $900,000.
