Kim Jong-un, the 30-year-old Korean leader who has warned of nuclear war and deemed tomorrow "doomsday," reportedly played a member of the T-Birds in a production of Grease at his Switzerland high school back in the '90s. The Sun has posted a photo that features a thin teen—reportedly Jong-un—in a leather bomber jacket. But, wait, there's more:

Kim also loved comics and watching US films such as Jurassic Park.

Pals say he enjoyed singing along to hits such as Summer Nights and You’re The One That I Want in the school production of Grease — the musical which became a hit Hollywood film with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in 1978.

Weird. We totally thought of him as a "Look at Me I'm Sandra Dee"/"Beauty School Dropout" kind of guy.

Also, this information comes along with two additional photos of Jong-un (including one of him in swim trunks) and the report that he had a massive body guard called "King Kong" that followed him around at school, pretending to be a 14-year-old. [The Sun]
