Still chubby-cheeked: Kim Jong-Un’s childhood photos revealed

Childhood photos of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un seem to show the makings of a military leader with big ambitions.

One pose shows him as a little boy in a military uniform and giving a salute while another captures him in the cockpit of a jet plane. Child play or the makings of a dictator? You decide.

But one thing is for sure - Kim still looks as chubby-cheeked, clean-scrubbed and smart.

Anyway, the photos were splashed on a screen during a tribute segment to the leader at an airforce event earlier this week. The event was telecast on North Korean national TV and showed a beaming Kim as he acknowledged applause and cheers from members of the airforce and audience.
