Best Answer

The Juche philosophy was founded by Kim Il Sing and differs from the 'Juche' as propounded by Huwang Jang yop that is based on communist ideology. 'Juche' is based on the natural human will for self-reliance, or self-sufficiency as an individual that collectively compose a state or a nation. It deviates from the marxist or communist ideology ,although adopts numerous principles of communist marxism as a state principle with the exception that the humanist approach puts faith in the people as a Democratic Republic. It is the official state ideology of North Korea - (Democratric Peoples' Republic of Korea)
