Kim Jong-un Inherits Father's Taste for Bling
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is spending top dollar on luxury products from overseas. He is apparently building a private ski resort and importing equipment to build his own sauna.
The younger Kim's propensity for luxury goods seems to exceed even his late father Kim Jong-il's penchant for the good life, which involved expensive whiskey and foreign cars bought as gifts for loyal officials.
According to diplomatic sources, the North recently imported sauna equipment from Finland and Germany. "Kim Jong-un likes to drink and party all night like his father and ordered the equipment to help him beat hangovers and fatigue," a source said. "Imports of wine and other spirits have increased since Kim Jong-il was in power."
North Korea also imported equipment to produce artificial snow and ski lifts. Kim Jong-un is building a private ski resort near Wonsan, Kangwon Province, the source added. He also imported ski equipment.
The young leader is also said to be negotiating the purchase of two luxury yachts made in the U.K. through a North Korean trading company operating in China. "The North requested a discount on the yachts, which cost around US$10 million each," the source said.
The younger Kim is also fond of doling out gifts. The newly created Moranbong troupe, who surprised the world with their revealing outfits and donning of Disney-character costumes last month, were given Yamaha electronic cellos and violins. The North also imported scores of Chinese Shih Tzu dogs. "Kim Jong-il used to spend hundreds of millions of won a year on his pet dog and Kim Jong-un is doing the same," the source said.
Kim Jong-un was spotted sporting a luxury Swiss watch believed to be a Patek Philippe at a ceremony in October of 2010 celebrating the 65th anniversary of the Workers Party. "The watch looks custom-made and costs around W100 million (US$1=W1,131)," the source said.
North Korea also bought luxury baby products worth 150,000 euros, apparently for Kim Jong-un's child. Among the imports was a breast pump from Swiss company Medela, considered the best in the world and priced at W3 million in South Korea.
They also included baby toothbrushes, toys, a cradle and a baby bathtub as well as a maternity cushion, according to sources.
"Ordinary North Koreans are suffering from droughts and floods, but Kim Jong-un is continuing to live the good life without even thinking about visiting the affected regions," said Koh Young-hwan, a researcher at the Institute for National Security Strategy.
If he keeps this up, Barry will be saying, “If I had a son...”.
What’s the yellow thing? Double breast pump??
I honestly found a person online who claims that the North Koreans live great lives. He said this because he went on vacation there and his guides gave him “unlimited access”. He further said that there is no famine in the DPRK.
This thread is dead...
Well, the rotten apple surely didn’t fall far from the tree.
If the results of this fatbucket chia pet and the evil sire that spawned him were not so tragic I would laugh with you.
North Korea is humanities attempt to replicate hell.
Israel to go for the twofer
Meet the new boss, worse than the old boss.
This while people starve to death and die in concentration camps. Horrific.
Did you find him on Youtube? There are communist/socialist loons who comment on videos/documentaries on North Korea on Youtube, and they praise the regime, the Kims, say it is the best Korea, hope that it prospers, etc. I found one person who actually commented on a propaganda video showing a kindergarten for the children of the elite. He claimed he had been all over North Korea, and he could personally testify that all the schools were top notch like that.
Oh wait, the West feeds them and the chicoms use them to export their missile and nuclear weapons tech to our enemies and everybody pretends that it's not happening.
Whats the yellow thing? Double breast pump??
It seems that they wanted to make a photo op to show that the new leader is a 'man of the people'
or some such, but in fact, the people are dreadfully terrified of even being in a photograph with him.
This was found on a page of 'funny' images, but really, it's horrible.
I was not, and have not been, laughing over what the Kims have done to their fellow men.
