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. Like his father before him, Kim Jong-un has a reputation for a hot temper and being very easily offended, which frequently leads to threats of declarations of war and attacks against South Korea, Japan and the United States when he does not get his way or he gets offended over perceived slights, whether real or imaginary.
Tenure as supreme leader
In April 2012 large portraits of Vladimir 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.
