Well this is a little out of left field...South Korean analysts say they're not sure what to make of it given all the rumors over the last year. Hope it's true - the kid apparently speaks English, has spent considerable time abroad, and is probably aided by having his legitimacy at least partially in question  Wink

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/as_nkorea_kim_jong_il_s_successor

North Korea's Kim Jong Il has anointed his 26-year-old son — said to be competitive, proficient in English and a heavy drinker — as the next leader of the communist state, news reports said Tuesday...

The son already is being hailed as "Commander Kim," and North Koreans are learning the lyrics to a new song praising him as the next leader, the Dong-a Ilbo newspaper said.


The kid certainly has an interesting background, if all this can be considered true anyway. I dug up this great little nugget in a google search about his mother, Ko Yong-hi, six years deceased (and you already thought the DPRK was strange!):

Ms Ko reportedly caught Mr Kim's eye as one of 2,000 girls employed in the dictator's "pleasure groups". She was a dancer in the Mansudae Art Troupe in Pyongyang. Each "pleasure group" is composed of three teams - a "satisfaction team", which performs sexual services; a "happiness team," which provides massage and a "dancing and singing team".

These teams, recruited from girls' high schools, undergo a six-month training course before they are assigned to one of the dictator's 32 villas and palaces until the age of 25.

Sounds like a lovely pedigree, no?  biggrin

Well at least it puts to rest the thought that N Korea is a communist state, clearly it is a hereditary monarchy.

A satisfaction team and a happiness team chosen from 2000 girls of high school age up to 25.  eyepopping  Sounds like every bloke's ultimate fantasy! You can keep the singing and dancing team though.

On a serious note, it would be great to think that North Korea had a chance at being run by someone who should be more conciliatory to the South and the west in general. The average North Korean has had it pretty rough for the last 50 years.

I have no doubt that this new incarnation of the dear leader will be just as deluded and heinous to his people and the rest of the world in general, perhaps even more so than his father because this guy has spent more time abroad and seen how horribly far behind NK is, so he'll do anything to keep the country blissfully unaware. It still shocks me to think about how totally and completely isolated that country is, I wonder how many more decades of this sort of existence they can handle?

Having seen what happened to the USSR when they loosened their grip a little Kim knows he has to keep and even tighter hold on the country. God knows how long this will go on.

I once saw in a documentary that Kim Jong Il was at one time the largest private buyer of cognac in the world. He must have been a drunk too. So like father like son. We already had one drunk so how bad can the next one be.

The documentary was about an eye doctor from Nepal who came to North Korea to do cataract surgery a few years ago. The doctor and his team smuggled cameras in their gear. It was an amazing program

They probably wouldn't know what to do with a computer. We should drop newspapers instead.

They wouldn't believe an independent source. I doubt they could have a revolution either, the average person doesn't have any guns to stand up against anyone.

No, that is his oldest son, who got snubbed for the role. The 26-year old is his youngest son.

No...that's Kim Jong-nam. He's the oldest son and he supposedly divides his time between Beijing and Macau and has little to do with his father. Some Japanaese or Chinese station did an interview with him at Beijing airport and he apparently speaks pretty decent English.

No.

Kim Il-Sung: "Great Leader"
Kim Jong-Il: "Dear Leader"

Kim Il-Sung was Kim Jong-Il's father. Remember, Kim is their last name.

I know, but I can't remember where, but I did hear that Krazy Kim did change his title to the same one, his long dead father used to have, and still has post mortem.
