North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and former NBA basketball player Dennis Rodman hug in Pyongyang, North Korea.
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman hung out with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un during his improbable journey to Pyongyang, watching the Harlem Globetrotters with the leader and later drinking and dining on sushi with him.
“You have a friend for life,” Rodman told Kim before a crowd of thousands Thursday at a gymnasium where they sat side by side, chatting as they watched players from North Korea and the United States face off in mixed teams, Alex Detrick, a spokesman for the New York-based VICE media company, told The Associated Press.
