THE grandson of hated former North Korea Leader Kim Jong-il says he wants to return and UNITE the country.
Kim Han-sol, a student at United World College in Bosnia, made the revelation in his first proper interview this week.
In the extraordinary chat with Han-sol, 16, revealed he had south Korean friends and that his roommate had been Libyan.
The teenager also appears to have been fully westernised, pictured with trendy glasses and two earrings.
But it is his views on South Korea that look sure to stun his ruling family back home.
Han-sol talked about how good it would be to one day be able to take a bus there from North Korea.
He said: “I have always dreamed that one day I will go back and make things better and make it easier for the people there.
“I also dream of unification because its really sad that I can’t go to the other side and see my friends over there. It’s a really sad story.
“I picture myself continuing my education. After university I picture myself volunteering somewhere.
“Also to work to contribute to building world peace, especially back home back home.
“That is a really important part of me that Korea are really divided and we can if we put a little effort, step by step we can come to a conclusion and unite.
“It’s going to be a step by step process.”
Han-sol’s dad is Kim Jong-nam, who is Kim Jong-il’s eldest son and had been tipped to succeed him.
But his decadent lifestyle saw him ditched in favour of his younger half-brother Kim Jong-un.
North and South Korea have been in conflict since 1950 during the three-year Korean War.
Tensions between the two areas has continued to the present day with relations extremely poor.
Han-sol did his interview with Elisabeth Rehn, Finland Minister of State, for Finnish television.
He also gave a remarkable insight into his life at university, where he started in 2011, and his schooling in Macau.
Han-sol added while he never met his grandfather, his position did affect his few years living in North Korea.
He said: “That played a big role in the isolation when I was growing up in North Korea.
“When I was growing up it was very isolated. I had to keep a very low profile and that’s why I didn’t really have any childhood friends from North Korea.
“When I was growing up in north Korea I didn’t really realise what was going. I didn’t get to know until later on that my grandfather was Leader in Korea. That was quite an interesting thing to find out.
“Slowly I started to put puzzle pieces together and I realised who he was.
“In my school in Macau we had people from the United States and South Korea, these countries we have been having a lot of conflict with and a lot of tensions. They turned out to be really good friends in the end.
“I have had some friends from south Korea in Macau it’s quite interesting because the two countries are trying to work to build peace for a unification
“At the same time there are laws that say North and South Koreans shouldn’t interact with each other even outside of Korea.
“Me and my South Korean friends at first it was kind of awkward.
“But then little by little we started understanding each other.
“We share our stories from back home and realise how similar we are.
“Today we are really close friends, we travel together and its such a good feeling.
“That just sparked the curiosity to me to go further and to the next level and I chose to go to United World College College.
“I’m staying in a dormitory and over there we have all these wonderful friends. My roommate is from Libya and it was very interesting. Especially the revolution when it happened he was very enthusiastic about it.
“In the residences we can sit down and have a chat for hours and hours about our conflicts back home and the division in society there is back home.
“From that we can come to common understanding on many different topics.
“We also realise that at the end of the day we all have very similar core human values and that most of the things today are
causing divisions in society through all let’s say politics, are mostly political issues.
“Those things cause a lot of problems in many places today, for example North Korea and South Korea.
“Next year we are going to one South Korean first year here and that’s going to be very interesting.”
Kim Han-sol was born on June 16th, 1995 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Han-sol
