North Korea's official news agency has abandoned the Gregorian calendar to adopt another based on the birthday of founder Kim Il-sung, grandfather of current leader Kim Jong-un.


And the North Korean news agency appeared since the beginning of this week, coinciding with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, with the date of  Juche 111  instead of 2022.


The word  juche is one of Kim Il-sung's principles, which translates to "independent attitude" and  spirit of self-reliance  The Juche calendar begins with the birth of North Korea's first president, founder Il Sung, in 1912, which is the first year.


 This calendar system was first introduced in 1997, three years after the death of North Korea's founder, but until this week, the Central News Agency continued to adopt the Western Gregorian calendar, the British newspaper  Times  reported.


The newspaper attributed the reason for this change to be related to the approaching 110th anniversary of the birth of  Il Sung  which falls on next April 15, which witnesses huge celebrations for the occasion.


 And North Korea had previously taken a similar step, as it changed its official time in 2015, announcing  Pyongyang time, which is half an hour ahead of the Korean official time used in South Korea, knowing that the Korean official time represents the same time zone used in Japan, and imposed when the peninsula was Korean under Japanese rule. It is worth noting that Japan also has its own calendar, which is based on the beginning of the reign of the current emperor, where the current year is known as  Riwa 4  the fourth year of Emperor Naruhito.
