A Peek Behind The Curtain

Quality Metafilter post on an interview with Kim Han Sol, one of Kim Jong-il’s (recently dead dictator of North Korea) grandsons.

The interviewer is Finnish but they swtich to English around 1:35.

My non-scientific thoughts — this kid seems remarkably stable for what must have been a hell of a childhood so far.  Also, his English is excellent, which makes me think Korean parents might do well to send their kids to study in Bosnia rather than Austalia, Canada, or the US.  Finally, here’s hoping a contract doesn’t get put out on this kid for speaking out about the brutality of the DPRK regime.  They’re not strangers to doing such things.
