Creation of the Juche Idea and the Songun Idea
The Juche idea and the Songun idea were created by Kim Il Sung [Juche 1 (1912)-Juche 83 (1994)], founding father of socialist Korea.

In the mid-1920s he embarked on the road of revolutionary struggle to liberate Korea from Japanese military occupation (1905-1945). In the course of searching for a new path of the Korean revolution, he found the truth of the Juche idea that the masters of the revolution are the masses of the people and that when one goes among them to educate and mobilize them one will be able to register victory in the revolution, and the truth of the Songun idea that the victory of the revolutionary cause and the independence, sovereignty and prosperity of a nation rest on the force of arms.

He stated the fundamentals of the Juche idea and the Songun idea at a meeting of leading cadres of the Young Communist League and the Anti-Imperialist Youth League held from June 30 to July 2, Juche 19 (1930) in Kalun, Northeast China. This marked the birth of those ideas.
