Kim Jong-il's Grandson's Facebook Revealed:

BBC

Talk about dissonance

Facebook accounts believed to belong to the North Korean leader's grandson have caused a stir in the South.

South Korean media discovered accounts thought to belong to Kim Han-sol, the 16-year-old son of Kim Jong-nam, Kim Jong-il's eldest son, on Saturday.

According to reports, the posts revealed a teenager who said he was in favour of democracy and that his favourite film was "Love Actually".

Photos showed Kim Han-sol with bleached blonde hair and dressed stylishly.

He is now believed to have blocked public access to his social networking accounts after being bombarded with South Korean media attention, the Korea Herald reported.

Romantic?

Kim Han-sol's sense of fashion has provoked considerable interest in the South Korean media, with Facebook photos showing him wearing rimmed glasses, earrings and a pendant in the shape of a cross.

A photo taken with a young woman has attracted interest because Mr Kim captioned it with the comment: "I'm going to miss you so much", a South Korean paper reported.

The unidentified girl replied: "I love you too, yeobo." Yeobo is a term of endearment that husbands and wives in Korea use to address each other, the paper explained.

And in one post, the teenager is said to have asked fellow students if they preferred democracy or communism - and said he preferred democracy.

Kim Han-sol is believed to live with his father, Kim Jong-nam, in China and also in the former Portuguese territory of Macau.

On Friday, the United World College in Bosnia said that he would be enrolling there as a student.

The South Korean press also says it has discovered accounts belonging to Kim Jong-nam, who was passed over by his father as successor to the North Korean leadership.

His page contained posts insulting his half-brother, Kim Jong-un, his father's chosen successor.

The South Korean paper says Kim Jong-nam was posting under the name "Kim Chol", a pseudonym he uses for hotel reservations when travelling to Singapore and Hong Kong.

Here is a picture. He looks like a hipster.

I wasn't advocating anything. I just thought the differences between him and his grandfather were interesting.

The stupidity of the plot of Homefront astonished me.

Eh, I feel bad for the kid. It's like those poor bastards who are related to Hitler...

I just read Homefront's plot and I have to say that it is the most idiotic thing I have ever read.

I hope he doesn't turn up dead in an alley somewhere... assuming this isn't a hoax.

I'm disappointed he's not the planned successor.

I'm glad to see the guy turned out OK, considering most of the Kims are batshit fucking crazy.

As USAF said, it's no different from the poor bastards who are related to Hitler. It's not like it's his fault, bein' a Kim'n'all.

I can imagine this being a hoax.

If he really is in Bosnia, and he's put this sort of thing up in public, I'd suggest that he doesn't return to North Korea. I'm afraid for his life.

How... random.
I couldn't possibly comment.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
