Bold Decision Made in His Teens

Date: 07/07/2020 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

Comrade Kim Il Sung, with a great ambition to win back his country deprived of by the Japanese imperialists, entered Hwasong Uisuk School in June 1926 at the recommendation of his father’s friends.

Hwasong Uisuk School was a two-year military and political school founded by the Korean fighters for independence at the beginning of 1925 in Huadian with a view to training cadres for the Independence Army. Its students were young people in their 20s recommended from the Independence Army and their number was less than 100.

The school failed to teach its students the right ideology and fighting methods and give military education but underscored only the need for them to be the pillars of independence movement in the future. He keenly realized that he could not find out the right way to national independence if he studied at the school the teaching methods and contents of which were conservative.

The school had been founded by his father’s friends and run by those who had had relationship with his father. If he was to remain loyal to them, he had to take an interest in the education provided at the school. But, he did not want to compromise with the outdated education in such a manner.

After these complicated thoughts he resolved to leave the school.

He wanted to break out of the narrow enclosure of Huadian and step into a broader arena, launching the Korean communist movement on a higher stage and conducting it on a full scale.

In his reminiscences With the Century, he recollected as follows:

Going to Jilin after attending Hwasong Uisuk School for only six months was the first great and courageous decision in my life.

….

If I had stayed at Hwasong Uisuk School all the processes which later helped to lead the Korean revolution to a rapid upsurge would have been delayed.
