~ Kim Jong-un

Kim Jong-Un is the main antagonist of the first-person shooter video game franchise Homefront. Kim is the third and youngest son of the late Kim Jong-il (the previous leader of North Korea) and leader of the Greater Korean Republic. He came to power in 2012 after his father's demise and reunited the two Koreas to create the GKR.

In Homefront, he was voiced by Danny Cho.

He does not appear in Homefront: The Revolution, which might imply that Kim went into complete hiding.

History

Kim inherited his power in 2012 after the elder Kim's death in 2012. He surprised the international community by announcing his plan to reunite the two Koreas. In the stages of his plan, he would dismantle the DMZ and create the Greater Korean Republic and be rewarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2013.

In reality, Kim was a far more ruthless, brutal, merciless, not to mention more meticulous planner than his father, and saw to continue his traditional practices of censorship, oppression, and religious and political persecution whilst simultaneously maintaining the facade of a democratic Korea. He also oversees the modernization of his military forces, with the annexed nations forces, combining a staggering 25,000,000 strong. This newly acquired power was first demonstrated in a show of force against Japan, which joined the GKR rather than face complete destruction in 2018.

Afterwards, the GKR began annexing many other East Asian countries including Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Brunei, East Timor, and Singapore, with the exception of Malaysia joining voluntarily. Eventually, the evil Jong-un set his sights finally upon the United States, and after using a satellite-based EMP strike to destroy the American electrical grid, the Korean Armed Forces launched an invasion against the west coast of the United States, eventually reaching its furthest point at the Mississippi River.

As Kim Jong-un does not appear in Homefront: The Revolution, he might have went into complete hiding, thus avoiding any punishments and repercussions for his atrocious crimes.

Trivia

  • In reality, Jong-un became the leader of North Korea on December 18, 2011 after his father's death.
    • Also in reality, Kim Jong-un has a much different appearance than in-game. His real life appearance can be seen here.
  • Despite being the video game's main antagonist, Kim Jong-un never makes any physical appearances at all in both Homefront and its sequel, and his only full appearance was from the first game's introduction. Because of this, it is heavily implied that Kim Jong-un went into complete hiding, and as a result, he was never encountered at all. This also explains his lack of return in Homefront: The Revolution, further implying that Kim Jong-un had hidden himself in an undisclosed location, thus completely avoiding any and all repercussions of his reprehensible actions since then.
  • In the Japanese version of Homefront, Kim Jong-un is instead called "Nothern Leader", and references of North Korea were heavily edited as to refer it as "A Certain Country to the North", likely to avoid political tensions, whereas South Korea banned the game altogether because of its negative portrayal of a unified Korea under Northern rule.
  • This version of Kim Jong-un is far more evil than the two versions of himself as unlike The Interview version (who has redeeming qualities) and the Animeme version (who is mainly played for laughs), this Kim Jong-Un in Homefront is far beyond evil than the two, as he possesses no redeeming qualities and is taken extremely seriously of his actions.
