Kim Il-sung affiliations with Soviet Union and Communist Party of China influenced his ideology because he resented the Japanese ultranationalist ideology which is called “sonno joi” Revere the Emperor, Expel the Barbarians. As a result, he joined communist parties to fight against the occupation of the Japanese in Korea through the anti-Japanese guerrilla groups in northern China.
