Kim Jong Un…….Rocket-man, whatever; to paraphrase ” We want to participate in your Winter Olympic games.” Meaning, we want to be your new best friend. We will replace the United States…….we have the nukes now! Then, you can follow me and I will starve your countrymen too! “I already control China!”
This really appears more as an undermining of the relationship between South Korea and the United States; an attempt as such. It is quite humorous, suddenly Kim is looking for another friend…….outside of China/Russia. But, it has more to do with undermining the U.S. Kim trying his best to look as strong and influential as the U.S.
