Was there supposed to be something amusing under that giant banner ad I was just greeted with?

I heard they couldn't trust him with the family business.  They sent him to Vegas to oversee a casino.

Older brother that got passed over? He doesn't look fat enough for the job.

Seems sufficiently rotund, but could be lacking in the 'takes himself far too seriously' department, judging by the pics available.

Wait, he has a son named Kim Han Solo?

Kim Jong-nam's son attends a in Mostar, Bosnia. (The son's name is Kim Han Sol.)

OK. Raise your hand if you think that name is a tribute to Han Solo.

It's a good thing they passed on this one; first day in power and he'd be farking Goofy.

This is why I learned to scan the comment thread first, as a rule.

I don't know.. he seemed to be a sane one.

FTFA .. Officially, he has not defected and still lives in North Korea, though he didn't bother to attend Kim Jong-il's funeral, nor did he attend Kim Jong-un's coronation. There are reports that Kim Jong-nam is opposed to such hereditary transfers of power, and believes North Korea must reform or perish.

Jong-nam style.

So let me get this straight.  There are three children. The oldest, Kim Jong-nam, who is too irresponsible to do any ruling; the middle child, Kim Jong-chul, who was too effeminate to rule; and the youngest son, Kim Jong-un, who is trying to keep them all together. This is their story.   Allested Deveropment.

Seriously, how can anything be less "responsible" than threatening the US with nuclear destruction?

Well, at least he's not a brony.

Why does it not surprise me...

That every single brother is named "Kim Jong" something.

Jeez, man, even George HW Bush didn't name his sons "George Herbert Bush, George Walker Bush, George Wabert Bush, and George Walert Bush"...

That picture almost beckons a caption about envy, judging by Tink's facial expression.

You do realize "Kim" is the family name right? It's no different then a family naming their kids all names that rhyme, start with the same letter, sound, etc..

/Interestingly enough Kim Jong-il's real name is not Jong-il....

Yeah, but grandpa was "Kim Il Sung".

"Kim Il" is not the family name.  "Kim Jong" is not the family name.  Only "Kim" is the family name.  Pops decided to name all his kids AFTER HIMSELF.

/oh wait there IS an example of a prominent American doing that...George Foreman!

Kind of. It's still sort of like a father named Jason having a son named Jason Jr, another named Jay, a daughter named Jasmine, and a daughter named Jamie.

The "jong/jeong" (정)in his name could be used as a modifier, as when paired with other nouns (in this case, a proper noun by name "il" or "un" or "nam") can be the adjective "compassionately" which would make their names good propaganda devices. Well who knows it's just food for thought. Or hubris. Or better yet, he REALLY loved his mother (Kim Jong-suk). Or whatever. His real name was Yuri Irsenovich Kim. TBH the change he made was good, if not unoriginal.

Now match up the sister!
...are you suggesting Jong-il might not be quite as dead as we have been led to believe?
