Apparently Kim-Il Sung formed the organization when he was 14 in order to spread the anti-imperialist movement against Korea’s Japanese colonizers. 

It must have been about a year after he first discovered hallucinogenic drugs.

The event looks similar to the candlelight vigils that were on in Seoul a few years ago.
