North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un came to power after the death of his father Kim Jong-il in December 2011. We take a look back at some of the most bizarre photo opportunities that he has taken part in during his time in charge of the highly secretive state.
Kim plays pong? Apparently directing live firing exercises, North Korea's secretive leader appeared to have a pink cased iPad close to hand, presumably so he could indulge in a few rounds of Candy Crush in between explosions...

North Korea finally looks to be catching up with the rest of the world in terms of fashion. Pyongyang, the socialist country's capital, now sees many women walking its streets in high-heeled shoes and wearing figure-hugging clothes. They also sport contemporary east Asian hairstyles and carry smart handbags.

Men too have started to wear more flattering clothes; clothes such as tight shirts with sharper, harder collars. However, Kim tends to favour dark military-style suits.

I remember seeing the picture of Kim with the plush toys a while back. At first I didn't notice it then I saw what was on the background. Also looking at the title I thought this was suppose to be a compilation of Photoshop pictures.

Look at him, smoking away in the hospital and the orphanage, right next to the cots! So evil yet so laughable at the same time! Thanks for the giggle!

Tough guy: Kim's elaborately blow-dried hair has drawn comparisons with Guile in video game Street Fighter


SquarePants: Kim Jong-un's new haircut has inevitably inspired a number of memes on social media


Grand design: Kim Jong-un debuted his 'high and tight' crop during a meeting of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea in North Korean capital Pyonyang yesterday


Inspiration: One person compared the North Korean leader's new hairstyle to an old-fashioned telephone


Some have compared Kim Jong-Un's new haircut and spectacles look to Dave the Minion in Despicable Me


Uncanny: Kim Jong-un's new look appears to have been inspired by early 90s heart-throb Jason Priestly


Kim's creation: The new look prompted social media users to compare it with his 2014 signature style (left)

LOL! Kim looks looks a child who is in the leadership position because of his family. The guy just looks so ridiculous that I find it hard to take anything he says seriously. When will the people of North Korea put this child in his place and start to properly run their country?

Not ever. They are brainwashed and oppressed and even the merest hint of subordination will have them thrown in jail.

I really don't see how these pictures are bizarre. I think that any photo taken out of context can be seen as bizarre. I do love the Jason Preistley comparison in the comments!! Yes!! His hair is just like Kim Jong Un's. Haha!

Those pictures gave me a good insight into this otherwise secretive man. I liked the one where he's strapped in his seat in the amusement park. It only goes to show he's human after all and he also likes to enjoy himself.

I'm sorry but this is hilarious. His haircut makes him look like an oversized 5 year old. I can just imagine him throwing a tantrum because he's not getting his own way.
