Irgendwie kann ich mir nicht vorstellen, dass es so geil ist den Diktator Nordkoreas zu spielen. Aber scheinbar fahren alle Leute voll drauf ab. Und wenn die Kohle stimmt, dann wird das dem Typen wohl auch egal sein.
A MILD-mannered musician has become the world’s first professional Kim Jong-un lookalike. Howard, from Hong Kong, has endured endless jokes about his dictator double ever since Kim rose to power in 2011. Now the 34-year-old is perfecting his wave and stern smile to bag work moonlighting as the ruthless general’s impersonator. Howard – who refuses to give his surname for fear of reprisals form the secretive state – says he fell into the role almost by accident when a picture of himself posing as the Dear Leader went viral on Facebook last April.
