In what sounds like an odd combination of Top Gun, The West Wing, and Touching The Void, Kim apparently summited the peak surrounded by hundreds of fighter pilots and party officials. Why? Why not!
Maybe more impressive is the fact that, judging by the photoshops.... we mean pictures, he did it all in a nice pair of black leather brogues. That's pretty good going, given the Paektu Mountain is a hefty 2,744 meters high.
To put that into context, it's about a third of the height of Mt. Everest, but over double the height of the UK's largest mountain Ben Nevis. But this isn't the only gnarly thing our Kim has in his locker.
