This man is not Kim Jong-un - level 2

03-12-2013 06:00

A 34-year-old man from Hong Kong looks just like the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

When Kim Jong-un became the president of North Korea, the man started to receive a lot of comments about his resemblance. The man has decided to take advantage of it. He has become a successful impersonator. He travels the world to film TV commercials and make appearances in TV shows. He charges $700 for an appearance.

This job has another advantage, as Kim Jong-un is a leader who will be in power until he dies. The impersonator will always have a job.

Difficult words: resemblance (similarity), impersonator (someone who acts like somebody famous), make appearance (be seen in a TV show).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
