The Juche philosophy was founded by Kim Il Sing and differs from the 'Juche' as propounded by Huwang Jang yop that is based on communist ideology. 'Juche' is based on the natural human will for self-reliance, or self-sufficiency as an individual that collectively compose a state or a nation. It deviates from the marxist or communist ideology ,although adopts numerous principles of communist marxism as a state principle with the exception that the humanist approach puts faith in the people as a Democratic Republic. It is the official state ideology of North Korea - (Democratric Peoples' Republic of Korea)

The word juche, in Korea, was first drawn from 1887-1900 translations of German philosophy, where it means "subject" (vs. "object"). It was later adapted to an ideology of "self-reliance" by Kim Il-sung, ruler of North Korea from 1948 to 1994 (president from 1972 to 1994).

The people that believe in Juche believe in their eternal president Kim Il-sung and they believe he is their "god".

In Northern Korea Marxist Communism is promulgated under the name of Juche (self realization). In many ways and by many commentators Juche is regarded as a religion.
