In a scenario where Kim il-Sung died before he could take over North Korea, how does North Korea/the "Democratic People's Republic of Korea" develop? Who takes over North Korea in lieu of Kim il-Sung? What does North Korea look under his rule?
There is this timeline I found: https://www.alternatehistory.com/fo...eat-leader-a-dprk-without-kim-il-sung.386067/Interesting. What would his rule of Best Korea look like?
