Kim Jong-un played `all-American hero` in school play
London: US-hating dictator Kim Jong-un once played an all-American hero in a school play, it has emerged.
In the school production of Grease, the musical that became a hit Hollywood film, Kim appeared as a slick-haired leather-jacketed member of "good" gang the T-Birds as a skinny teen.
According to the Sun, the North Korean leader started at the 16,000 pounds-a-year International School of Berne in Switzerland aged 11 in 1994 and stayed until 1997.
Kim also loved comics and watching US films such as Jurassic Park, the report said.
His friends said that Kim enjoyed singing along to hits such as Summer Nights and You`re The One That I Want in the school production of Grease.
The report quoted his ex-classmate from Israel, as saying that `everyone now looks at him as a lunatic who hates the world, but the kid he remembers was the quietest person he had ever met.`
