Kim Jong Il's Concubines

Of all the ways that North Korea's Kim Jong Il has done his country wrong, one of the most troublesome is that he has used his power to coerce women into being his personal concubines. Coerce might actually be too slight a word to describe what he does: Kim has reportedly been known to dispatch military commandos south to kidnap women, including some movie stars, whom he then enslaves as concubines. The "Dear Leader" is believed to have fathered nine children with mistresses, not including the five offspring who he has supposedly acknowledged as being the result of multiple marriages.
