Time meets Kim Jong Un’s famous lookalike. Howard X made international news, after he was deported from Vietnam during the Trump-Kim summit this year. Since then, business has been booming for the doppleganger as he’s appeared in music videos and ads the world over.


Howard first began styling himself after Kim about 6 years ago as a joke. After being told by friends he bore a resemblance to the North Korean dictator, he decided that he could turn his amusing likeness into a serious career.

Fast forward a few years and Howard has turned his party trick into a full-time job. Throughout history, we’ve seen that dictators can have very thin skin and hate to be criticised. Not only does Howard want to make people laugh with his impression, but he also wants to remind people that humour can be a powerful weapon in the fight against dictatorships.
