Exact Birthday Of North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un Finally Revealed

Despite the efforts of US officials to closely monitor North Korea's activities, some basic information regarding its leader, Kim Jong Un, have been missed out.

However, yesterday, the US Treasury Department officially identified Kim's date of birth. He was born on January 8, 1984, which means he's 32 years old. 

The US Treasury Department added his information into its Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list, which is a compilation of individuals and companies held by targeted countries. The assets of those individuals added on the list are blocked, and US citizens are prohibited from doing any transactions with them.

Notorious for being impenetrable, the hermit kingdom's state media had their leader's exact date of birth withheld from the public, as noted by CNN last year.

There have been speculations that Kim was born in 1982, while others suggested it was 1983. The mystery could've rooted from his youthful look.

Cheong Seong-chang, a senior researcher at South Korean think tank Sejong Institute, told CNN: “It could be because he is a young leader. Being young could have its advantage and disadvantage.”
