金三胖 (Jīn Sān Pàng): Kim Fatty III

"How did North Korea get strong? Because of Kim Fatty III." Inspired by a Global Times Chinese dream ad. (Artist: Cheng Tao 成涛)

Nickname for Kim Jong-un, Supreme Leader of North Korea.

Kim Jong-un inherited leadership after his father's death in December 2011. While China's state media expressed condolences for Kim Jong-il's death, Chinese netizens immediately began lampooning his chubby son. Kim Jong-un quickly became "Kim Fatty III."

China is one of North Korea's only allies. Over the years, the Chinese public has grown increasingly uneasy with this diplomatic relationship.

Example: Weibo users commented on Kim Jong-un's 40-day disappearance in fall 2014:

Xuanhuwencha (@悬壶问茶): I asked Uncle Doorman, "Why does Kim Fatty III have to play hide-and-seek? Uncle Doorman (Menweidaye @门卫大爷) says, "Kim Fatty III has three goals: one, to test the loyalty of his cadres; two, to see how the U.S., U.K., Japan, and South Korea react; and three, to slap Chinese intellectuals in the face.

我问门卫大爷:金三胖为什么要玩捉迷藏呢?@门卫大爷说:三胖玩捉迷藏有三个目的:1、考考干部队伍的忠诚度;2、看看美英日韩的反应;3、打打中国公知的脸。 [Chinese]
