One seems bent on world domination, a powerful media manipulator capable of influencing the lives of millions. The other is a North Korean dictator.

But it seems reality TV star Kim Kardashian and ruthless Kim Jong-Un have a previously unknown common hobby – a love of ski-ing

As the Kardashian family posed for paparazzi in designer ski wear, North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un was also creating his own stage-managed image at the secretive country’s newly-opened ski resort.
