Is that Kim Jong Un? Is he playing Danny Zuko? A new photo surfaced today that reportedly shows Kim Jong-Un dressed up as a character from the movie Grease for a school play.
It’s unclear exactly who Kim Jong Un is playing. It could be Zuko, Kenickie, Sonny, Putzie or maybe just a background character.
Regardless of the actual role, it’s pretty strange to see the American-hating dictator dressed up in a leather jacket, some cool shades, and greased back hair.
The photo was published today by The Sun. The paper reports that Kim Jong Un attended the International School of Berne in Switzerland between the ages of 1994 and 1997 when he was a young teenager. During this time, Kim apparently developed a love for comic books and would frequently watch movies like Jurassic Park.
Kim Jong-Un and his friends also enjoyed singing and joined the school’s rendition of Grease. The North Korean dictator reportedly helped sing Summer Nights and You’re The One That I Want during the school play.
An old school friend of the dictator’s told The Sun:
“Everyone now looks at him as a lunatic who hates the world, but the kid he remembers was the quietest person he had ever met.”

Do you think that’s Kim Jong-Un in Grease? Can you picture the dictator singing and dancing to Summer Nights?
