Showing the Softer Side of North Korea's Kim Jong-il

He may be known as a lunatic and a ruthless dictator, but I bet there are a lot of things the world doesn’t know about Kim Jong-il.

The North Korean dictator has been in charge since 1994 and continues to rule with an iron fist.

But did you know Kim Jong-il is quite the ladies’ man? Apparently his wit and charm seldom fails when wooing a lady friend.

He is also apparently terrified of planes, so all of his traveling is done by train.

(My Personal Favorite) Kim Jong-il happens to be a huge movie buff. His collection is rumored to have more than 20,000 films in it. His favorites are said to be "Friday the 13th," "Rambo" and James Bond.

Everybody has minor details that make us chuckle. I just wouldn’t suggest chuckling in Kim Jong-il’s face.
