Kim Jung Eun impersonator bombs US in Israeli burger commercial
An ordinary 35-year-old man from Hong Kong named Haward has become the first professional Kim Jong Un impersonator in the world after uploading a video of himself on Facebook last April. He has now appeared in a controversial TV ad for an Israeli burger chain in which he threatens to nuke the US and Obama. In this ad, he speaks in Korean that even most South Korean people can’t understand well, which actually makes it even funnier.

He has had to endure endless jokes since Kim Jong-un became leader of North Korea in December 2011. Haward was a musician, and liked impersonating other people, so he decided to do this. Recently, he surprised citizens and tourists with his perfect costume of Kim Jong Un on Halloween.
Haward refuses to give his surname for fear of reprisals from the secretive state. He said, "the key to becoming Kim is to always look unhappy and dissatisfied. It is his trademark. Keeping up with Kim's look is extremely easy and enjoyable. All I have to do is eat and eat and then eat some more." His family has been supportive of his new career path after years performing in bands and producing music. It seems that he really enjoys his new job. "It is fun to play him because it freaks people out. They don't expect to see this notorious dictator walking the streets of their city The reaction whenever I step out in the Mao suit, make up and hair slicked back, is always crazy. Sometimes I have to wear a baseball cap and sunglasses to try and avoid the attention when going about my everyday business."
