Kim Jong Un

Kim Jong Il has reportedly chosen his youngest son to become North Korea’s next leader.

This is the only known picture of him, from when he was 11. He’s 26 now. He went to boarding school in Switzerland, where he learned French and German. He enjoys skiiing and watching NBA basketball, and he’s a big Jean-Claude Van Damme fan. North Korean schoolchildren are already singing songs of praise in his honor.
