“”Commander Kim” speaks Swiss German” – swissinfo.ch reports – “Not only will the next leader of North Korea reportedly is a drink-loving basketball fan but the youngest son of Kim Jong-il is also an alumnus of a Swiss private school.”
Why, of course he is. After all, he’s from a rich family, a dynasty.
A mysterious figure, Kim Jong-un is the second son of former dancer Ko Yong Hi, a woman who died of cancer in 2004.
A Swiss connection runs through the family. Jong-un studied at the International School of Berne in the 1990s, but left in 1998 at the age of 15 before taking his baccalaureate exam, the equivalent to a British A-level.
The Swiss weekly news magazine L’Hebdo reported that he went by the pseudonym Pak Chol and learned to speak English, German and French – as well as Swiss German.
