Baik Bong is famous for writing the official biography of Kim Il-sung published in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), also known as North Korea. The biography counts on his successes and fight for national independence. During the 1960s and 1970s, P'yŏngyang began a massive campaign to publish the works and feats of Kim Il-sung in several languages in order to promote its Juche ideology throughout the world (and in the third world in particular). The famous biography by Baik Bong was published in three volumes. The first volume is titled "From Birth to Triumphant Return to Homeland," the second volume "From Building Democratic Korea to Chollima Flight," and the third volume "From Independent National Economy to 10-Point Political Programme."
