Dear Grandson has a Facebook page

That would be Kim Han-sol, grandson of North Korean Leader Kim Jong-il. The 16-year-old has a penchant for kooky hairstyles, wears a diamond earring and “Likes” democracy(!). Kids. I’m sure he’ll grow out of it. He’s also said to have a Twitter account. Kim has now made his Facebook account private but the Korean paper Chosun Ilbo lists several of the online handles he uses around the web. Keep in mind, many people in North Korea don’t even know the internet exists.
