Pictures – Kim Jong Un and Rodrigo Duterte’s Impersonators Cause a Stir

Onlookers thought for a moment that they had North Korean leader Kim Jong Un out and about with them on the streets of Hong Kong.

Visit the streets of Hong Kong – and if you’re lucky – you might come across North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte walking been out and about with you, sharing laughs, posing for pictures and enjoying fried chicken dinners.

Look closely, however, and you might notice that the pair hasn’t actually come out of their respective countries to win over foreign hearts. Instead, the two persons you’d see on the streets of Hong Kong are, in fact, a couple of impersonators.

While the man who impersonates Mr. Duterte is recognized has the rather weird real name of Crescencio Extreme, the more popular of the duo is Howard X – the lookalike of Mr. Kim.

Kim Jong Un Impersonator Earns £10,000 a day

When Kim Jong Un replaced his father Kim Jong Il in 2011, Howard X was just another ordinary guy in Hong Kong. He had grown up in Australia and had traveled to Hong Kong in search of a job.

His moment of fame came on 2012’s April Fool’s Day when Howard posted pictures of himself as Kim Jong Un on social media. Six years on, and he is still reaping the benefits that come with stardom.

So popular has he become that Howard X says that he earns up to £10,000 a day for jobs ranging from opening shopping malls, starring in video games and entertaining guests at the birthday parties of billionaires.

He is fearless, too, as Howard infuriated the real Kim Jong Un by appearing on at least three different occasions of 2018 Winter Olympics where the North Korean delegation was also in attendance.

As can be expected, he was thrown out of the Hockey Stadium for being a nuisance to the guests.

However, with the real Kim Jong Un showing no signs of leaving his throne any soon, Howard X is confident that he’d continue to get high paying jobs in the foreseeable future.

Donald Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize following North Korea Summit

The US president has been nominated for the ultimate peace prize by a group of Norwegian politicians following the groundbreaking North Korea summit.

A group of Norwegian politicians has nominated the US President for the Nobel Peace Prize after Donald Trump held talks with Kim Jong Un in the North Korea summit.

The nomination has come from at least two members of the Norway’s Progress Party, which is generally considered left of center and is the third largest party in the Scandinavian country.

“What’s going on now is historic,” Progress Party member Per-Willy Amundsen told NRK. “A process is underway to ensure world peace in the future. It’s a fragile process, but we must, of course, do what we can to help this process bring good results.

Though the nomination has now been made, it missed this year’s deadline for the ultimate peace prize. So Mr. Trump would have to wait for until next year to be officially nominated for the award.

The Nobel Peace Prize – which was also awarded to Mr. Trump’s predecessor Barrack Obama – is considered one of the most iconic honors in the world. It is open to academics, leaders, and researches, with the scope of the nomination so broad that a record 330 people were nominated for the 2018 prize.

Mr. Trump isn’t the only world leader who has ever been nominated for the prize. For, in the past, Cuban leader Fidel Castro, as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin, were also nominated for the same, though none of them was able to clinch it.

Should Mr. Trump wins the award, he would join his immediate predecessor Barrack Obama in the list of US presidents who have received the honor.

The US President was in Singapore this week where he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and thereby becoming the first sitting US President to meet with Mr. Kim. After a day of negotiations, the two countries parted way amid hopes of protracted negotiations in the coming months.
