North Korean dictator and sabre-rattler extraordinaire Kim Jong-un was once just like us, a gawky teenager and musical theatre nerd. The Sun has published photos of Kim from his days at the exclusive International School of Berne in Switzerland, which he attended between 1994 and 1997 under a pseudonym, at a cost of over 150,000 yuan per year.
Kim poses with classmates in 1995.
The Sun, as is its wont, published a list of puns based on Kim’s involvement in the musical, most of which are pretty lousy. I’m confident our readers can do better, post your Grease-Kim-DPRK puns in the comments.
You’re the Jong That I Want
Hopelessly Devoted to Nukes
Greased Lighten Up
Seoul Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On
It’s Raining Missiles on Prom Night
