You want to know something absolutely crazy? North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has family that lives in the United States. Not only that, but they’ve been living here for quite some time. They have American aliases so virtually no one except a select few know who they actually are.
Ko Yong Suk, 60, is the sister of Kim Jong Il’s third-wife, the mother of current North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. She came over to the United States in 1998 after she defected from North Korea.
However, what’s stunning about the whole thing is that Ko Yong Suk and her husband even cared for the current Korean dictator when he was a small child. But it seems the communist regime and perhaps the family took its toll on the couple and they had no choice but to escape.
Now, they live just outside of New York City and even have their own dry cleaning business. Talk about a tale of polar opposites. I wonder what kind of ‘business’ they’d be owning if they were still in North Korea?
They seem to know how fortunate they are though, having escaped the brutal North Korean regime.
Speaking to the Washington Post recently, they had this to say.
“My friends here tell me I’m so lucky, that I have everything,’ Ko told the Post. ‘My kids went to great schools and they’re successful, and I have my husband, who can fix anything. There’s nothing we can envy.”
Her husband added,”I think we have achieved the American Dream.”
