He took the helm of the communist state upon the death of his father and national founder Kim Il-sung in 1994. His successor, Kim Jong-il has announced that 20 year-old son, Kim Jong Un.

According to press in South Korea, North Korea test-fires missile after Kim Jong-il had died. South Korea's Yonhap news agency claimed, a military official made ​​a statement that the missile test is linked to the death of Kim Jong-il. South Korea and Japan is on the emergency situation.

After the death of North Korean leader, North Korea may behave aggressively in the short term in order to sort of show weak or not exposures. But in the long run, this aggressive attitude of North Korea will give up if the young leader of North Korea does not become the victim of his ambitions.
