It's surprising it took this long, to be honest.
The Telegraph is reporting that North Korea have launched a "new purge" targeting "long hair and offenders are told to adopt their leader's idiosynractic coiffure, with a swept-back, angled bouffant."
One's own interpretation of the swept back wave is not allowed, especially has an exact hair length has been implemented for men, it must be no longer than "2cm (0.8 inches) in length", which doesn't leave much room for a bouffant...

South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper reportedly states that authorities are also requesting that men are "also being instructed to pay homage to Mr Kim by copying his trademark swept-back bouffant that emerges upwards from the shaved patches above his ears."
Female North Koreans are getting away with it; they've been instructed to adopt a bob to replicate the look of Ri Sol-ju, the North Korean leader's wife.
How are they going to enforce this look: "University students monitors are walking around with scissors and cutting off the hair of offenders."
Seemingly the only people exempt from this rule are "performers."
