Kin Jong was crowned to the supreme post of Korea after the death of his father. His father had prepared him for succession to leadership. He has implemented some economic and agricultural reforms but he is most criticized for human rights violations and brutal suppression of opposition. He is married with Ri-Sol-Ju in 2009 and has a child named, Kin-Ju-ae.
The Huffington Post stated that he has an estimated net worth of $5 billion US dollar. This prodigal leader spends $30 million US dollar only in bottles of high-end alcohol and $37 million in electronics goods. He is living extravagant life in his luxurious palace.
