The North Korean government has often used the image of the Chollima to promote itself as a superior nation with a superior economy. The North Korean government has also claimed that it has successfully developed its own version of this mythical creature called “Samguk-sinja” (meaning “national wealth”).
However, there are some doubts about whether this mythical creature even exists in reality or not. Some scholars say that it doesn’t exist at all while others say that it could be some sort of metaphor for an idealized form of Kim Il Sung.
