Pictured above, flagged by Gawker via Daily NK, is Kim Jong-un, the dictator as a young man during his days at a Swiss boarding school. How exceptionally notable is it that from a team with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, he chose to don the No. 91 jersey belonging to Dennis Rodman?
We’re reminded of this AP report back in 2009: “A classmate recalled him as timid and introverted but an avid skier and basketball player who was a big fan of the NBA star Michael Jordan.” Ah, so maybe Kim was just a sports hipster?
Whatever the case, here’s your reminder that Dennis Rodman — The Worm, The Weird One — is currently in North Korea with VICE and, in all likelihood, killing it. You can follow his adventures at the hashtag #WORMinNorthKorea.
We can’t wait for his sit-down with the man — now all grown up — pictured above:
It’s true, I’m in North Korea.Looking forward to sitting down with Kim Jung Un.I love the people of North Korea. #WORMinNorthKorea
