Kim Jong-un (January 8, 1982/1984) 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 holds 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, and reportedly became brain dead in April 2020 after a stent operation during heart surgery in a Communist North Korean hospital.
Like his father before him, Kim Jong-un has a reputation for a hot temper and being very easily offended, which frequently leads to temper tantrums and inflammatory and provocative threats of declarations of war and disproportionate 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. Kim Jong-un is known for his personality cult, his obesity is an example of this, for a country with a famine even large as the half of Africa.
Tenure as supreme leader of a country destroyed by Communism
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.
Since the beginning of 2014, Kim has put on considerable weight, leading to questions concerning his health (he was already a heavy smoker and heavy drinker).
In 2017, Kim Jong-un claimed that the Central Intelligence Agency and the South Korean N.I.S. wanted to kill him with biochemical weapons, which is unfounded and nothing more than a provocation as usual by this dictator.
