kim jong un is a supreme leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRk). Kim Jong-un was born on 8th January 1983. He was named head of the party, state and army within a fortnight of his father’s death in 2011.
In January 2016, Mr Kim shot to global headlines when he oversaw what the regime claimed was an underground hydrogen bomb test – its third nuclear test since he came to power. Kim Jong-un is married to Ri Sol-ju and he has child named Kim Ju-ae.
He has held the titles of the First Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, the Chairman of the Central Military Commission, Chairman of the National Defence Commission, the Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, and presidium member of the Politburo of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
He is a son of Kim Jong-il. Kim was named the world’s 46th most powerful person by the Forbes list of The World’s Most Powerful People in 2013, the third highest among Koreans after Ban Ki-moon and Lee Kun-hee.
According to Cheong Seong-chang of Sejong Institute, Kim Jong-un has greater visible interest in the welfare of his people and engages in greater interaction with them than his father did.
On 25 July 2012 North Korean state media reported for the first time that Kim Jong-un is married to Ri Sol-ju. Little is known of Ms Ri, but her stylish appearance – short, chic haircut and Western dress – led some analysts to suggest that she was from an upper-class family and that she fits Mr Kim’s efforts to project a more relaxed image compared to his predecessors.
