Kim Il Sung’s son, Kim Jong-il, has a life that is more myth than fact. It is believed that Kim Jong-il’s birth was foretold by a swallow before he was miraculously born in a cabin on the slopes of the famous Korean Paektu Mountain and upon his birth a double rainbow formed and a new star appeared in the sky.
The day of his birth continues to be celebrated every year on February 16 as the Day of the Shining Star. However, the real truth is he was born in a muddy camp for Chinese and Korean exiles on a cold grey winter’s day in Russia.
