Kim Jong-un is the dictator of North Korea, son of the former dictator Kim Jong-Il, and grandson of the first ruler of the nation Kim Il-sung. In December 2011 he was formally declared successor to his father as supreme leader. Officially, he hold the titles of First Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, First Chairman of the National Defense Commission, Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission. He is a Communist and an atheist.

Tenure as supreme leader

In April 2012 large portraits of Lenin and Karl Marx were removed from Pyongyang's Kim Il-sung Square, presumably on Kim Jong-un's orders. While this may signal an ideological change on the part of the regime, the Workers' Party stopped referring to North Korea as a Marxist-Leninist state decades ago, substituting Kim Il-sung's philosophy of self-reliance, known as Juche.[1]

In March 2013 Kim Jong-un started to provoke war with South Korea.[2] He terminated the truce of the Korean War and said North Korea is in "state of war" with South Korea.[3]

In 2013 it was known that Kim Jong-un gave copies of Adolf Hitler's book Mein Kampf to his top officials and ordered them to study it as a leadership-skills manual.[4]

In November 2013 80 people were publicy executed for watching foreign films.[5] In December 2013 Kim Jong-un executed his own uncle Jang Song Thaek.[6]

In July 2014 Kim Jong-un delivered weapons to Islamist terror organization Hamas.[7] Since the beginning of 2014, Kim has put on considerable weight, leading to questions concerning his health.[8]
