Kim Jong-Un, The Supreme Leader of North Korea takes himself and his leadership very seriously.
The blurry photographs show Kim Jong-un wearing military uniform while giving a military salute to the camera and drawing at a desk.
The young boy looks as if he is already in training to take over from his revered father Kim Jong-il who was known as the Dear Leader and died in 2011.
But in fact Kim Jong-il only named Kim Jong-un as his successor in 2009 at the expense of the late dictator's elder sons.
The family photograph below shows Kim Jong-il with his eldest son Kim Jong-nam who was long considered to be his heir apparent.
In a blood chilling twist, Kim Jong-un’s estranged half brother Kim Jong-nam was killed in a poison attack at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia in 2017.
North Korea is thought to be behind the attack. But two women have pleaded not guilty to the shocking asassination in broad daylight.
Kenji Fujimoto, who claims to have been Kim Jong-il’s personal sushi chef, always predicted that Kim Jong-un would be Kim Jong-il's successor instead of Kim Jong-nam.
The Japanese chef uses a pseudonym and has spoken about how he was told to be Kim Jong-un’s “playmate” when the future leader was just a boy.
“Kim Jong-un always decided what we were going to play that day,” he told Frontline.
