Kim Jong-un The Matchmaker


Published at 10:16am 23rd May 2016.

Kim Jong-un has a new mission on his hands - to wed his sister.

The North Korean dictator is launching a brand new competition aiming to find a husband for his sister Kim Yo-jong.

She was elected to the hermit state’s powerful Central Committee and will now have to choose from the hand selected candidates.

Jong-un isn’t remaining open minded about the competition and has very specific requirements for the 30 individuals.  

They must be a student or graduate of Pyongyang’s Kim Il-sung University, 5’10 tall, good looking and served in the army.

Apparently, Kim Yo-jung has exactly the same expectations for her new man.

This isn’t the first time Jong’un has tried to match make for his sister.

According to The Sun, a similar competition ran in 2012 but they failed to find the perfect candidate.
