Hey, you know what Kim Il Sung's favorite movie was? Rambo. You know what his favorite TV program was? WWF. It was either him or his son that organized a pro-wrestling event in N.Korea a few years ago as a move towards "normalizing" relations with the west. Looks like he had a better understanding of N.American culture than he is usually given credit for.
