‘The Real Dr Evil’ explores the rise of Kim Jong-il after his father, Kim II- sung’s, death. His father, who is referred to as ‘Great Leader’ by North Korea, was a highly praised and well-respected leader -the founder of North Korea and commander of the fifth largest standing army in the world.
Following the death of Kim II-sung, Kim Jong- il was left to fulfil the position of his father, however many doubted he had the right skills to follow in his footsteps. He was seen as a black sheep as rarely taken seriously. Everyone felt that Kim Jong- il would struggle to keep up to his father’s standards. Were they right?
‘The Real Dr Evil’ follows the fascinating journey of Kim Jong- il — from his childhood experiences, through his education, to his controversial leadership. When the great economic collapse of the mid-90s struck, Jong-il left many of his citizens to suffer. But as many began to lose hope, Jung-il began approaching many western countries for help. Many perceived this distress signal positively, others did not.
