At a concert for North Korea’s air force, a few rare childhood pictures of its supreme leader Kim Jong Un were revealed of him as a boy, all dressed up in a uniform and looking quite innocuous. He salutes! He smiles! There’s even a picture of him, slightly older, having a go at piloting a plane in a mini-sized cockpit. According to his friends at school, ‘he was more interested in basketball than politics’. Fact that he’s now vastly more interested in bolstering troops than shooting hoops shows that time changes all of us.
