Meet Howard - world's first professional Kim Jong-un impersonator

Known simply as Howard, this 34-year-old Hong Kong-Australian, has decided to change his musician's career into that of a professional North Korean dictator impersonator.

According to, he revels in the joy of people's reactions when he roams the streets of Hong Kong - a mini celebrity who also instills uncertainty and freaks people out.

For a bit of laugh, he shocked people by appearing outside the South Korean consulate and United States embassy. He has also been hired for an Israeli burger chain's TV ad.

His friends and family are extremely supportive of his new calling, and are proud of him.

Howard has set up a Facebook page to promote his impersonation, but he does not wish to share his last name as he fears reprisal from the North Korea.
