Kim Jong Il’s Other Son

How many of these guys are there? Kim Jong Il’s eldest son Kim Jong-nam says he opposes dynastic succession in North Korea as his little brother Kim Jong-un is readied to take over the impoverished, closed-off communist nation. Kim Jong-nam, who is 39 and lives in Macao with his wife and two kids, was considered too much of a wild child to take over from his dad. He told Japanese reporters Saturday that he opposes “hereditary transfer to a third generation of the family,” but nevertheless, he will support his brother and hopes he can raise living standards for North Koreans. "As a matter of course, I think it was my father who made the decision. As I have had no interest in the matter, I don't care at all," Jong-nam said.
