Facebook accounts believed to belong to the North Korean leader’s grandson have caused a stir in the South.
South Korean media discovered accounts thought to belong to Kim Han-sol, the 16-year-old son of Kim Jong-nam, Kim Jong-il’s eldest son.
According to reports, the teenager has bleached blonde hair, favours democracy and his favourite film is Love Actually.
He is now believed to have blocked public access to his social networking accounts after being bombarded with South Korean media attention, the Korea Herald reported.
Kim Han-sol’s sense of fashion has provoked considerable interest in the South Korean media, with Facebook photos showing him wearing rimmed glasses, earrings and a pendant in the shape of a cross.
A photo taken with a young woman has attracted interest because Mr Kim captioned it with the comment: “I’m going to miss you so much”, a South Korean paper reported.
The unidentified girl replied: “I love you too, yeobo.” ‘Yeobo’ is a term of endearment that husbands and wives in Korea use to address each other, the paper explained.
And in one post, the teenager is said to have asked fellow students if they preferred democracy or communism – and said he preferred democracy.
Kim Han-sol is believed to live with his father, Kim Jong-nam, in China and also in the former Portuguese territory of Macau.
