Number Eight: He Killed His Uncle. You might be familiar with Jong-un’s insane antics, but did you know he killed his uncle? Jong-un’s uncle confessed to several crimes against the state, such as accepting medical care in a foreign country and spending foreign money in a foreign country, so Jong-un ordered him to be executed by firing squad.
Number Seven: He Is the Sexiest Man Alive. Well, not really. After the satirical publication The Onion printed a piece calling him the sexiest man alive, news outlets all over China ran the story without realizing that it was meant to be satire.
Number Six: He Is Afraid of Barbers. We’re not sure if it’s because he’s afraid of sharp objects near his head or he’s just too picky about his coif, but Jong-un is so afraid of barbers that he cuts his own hair. That explains a lot.

Number Three: He Had Plastic Surgery to Resemble His Grandfather. According to leaks from Chinese diplomats, Jong-un underwent surgery so he would more resemble his grandfather Kim Il-sung.
Number Two: He Is Very Passionate About Cheese. Jong-un reportedly imports Emmental cheese to satisfy his enormous cravings. He reportedly spends thousands of pounds every year to import the cheese to North Korea.
Number One: He Founded North Korea’s First All-Female Band. It’s true! Jong-un handpicked female singers to make North Korea’s very first all-girl group. The group is called the Moranbong Band, and they sing about how great North Korea is, because of course.
