Kim Jong-un loves the American version of “The Simpsons” and the British version of Game of Thrones.
“We’re doing a show in the U.S. that will be broadcast next week on American cable,” he told reporters on Monday.
“It’s the American TV show ‘The Simpsons’ and it’s called ‘The Game of Thrones.'”
The North Korean leader, who has not appeared on American television since 2015, is said to watch the American show regularly because it shows him the various aspects of life in the United States, according to an article in The New York Times.
“The show will be shown in a different way than what we normally do,” he added.
“I hope they’ll show me in the new way, I’d like it.
They’re trying to be more open to the West.”
During his time as North Korea’s ruler, Kim Jong Nam has made the most of his time at the table with the U and China.
The North Korean president has used his popularity with the Chinese to secure access to high-level trade talks, a possible future nuclear deal and to ensure that the Chinese market is not left behind by the United Nations sanctions regime.
“It’s been a good experience for us,” he said of his trip to Beijing last month.
“We have a good relationship with the people there.
I think we’ve found a way to achieve our goal of a better relationship with China, and I think they will see the benefit of it.”
In his interview with The American Conservatives, Kim also took aim at China, saying that the country was being overly ambitious in pursuing its economic interests.
“They are not able to stand up to America in its own sphere of influence,” he asserted.
“They’re not able … to stand on their own two feet.”
While the Chinese government and the North Korean regime may be on a war footing, the two sides are not at war.
