Kim 101: How well do you know North Korea's leaders?

North Korea's new supreme leader Kim Jong-un appears to be securing his hold on the country's reins last held by his father, Kim Jong-il. Observers of his recent speech, his first as leader, say that he seems to be imitating his grandfather, the country's founder, Kim Il-sung, in mannerism and appearance in order to instill confidence and control. But the Kims are known as much for their eccentricities and cults of personality as they are for their iron-fisted rule. How well do you know Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-il, and Kim Jong-un?
