    Howard said his friends have teased him about looking like Kim Jong-un, so last April Fool's Day, he cut his hair and set up a Facebook page.

    "We joked back and forth, 'Maybe I should get dressed up and do some gigs with it.' After all, I'm a musician, so it's about the performance," he told Reuters.

    Howard, a drummer and producer, said he didn't want to reveal his last name because he wanted to keep his music and impersonation careers separate.
