Doan Thi Huong

Kim Jong-nam (; 10 May 1971 – 13 February 2017) was the eldest son of Kim Jong-il, deceased former leader of North Korea. From roughly 1994 to 2001, he was considered the heir apparent to his father. Following a series of actions showing dissent to the North Korean regime, including a failed attempt to visit Tokyo Disneyland in May 2001 by entering Japan with a false passport, he was thought to have fallen out of favour with his father.
