Kim Jong Un never looked so good.
The North Korean leader was depicted as a character played by South Korean actor Hyun Bin — star of the hit K-drama series “Crash Landing on You” –during a CNN Indonesia story about the reportedly ailing despot, according to Coconuts Indonesia.
During the news segment, a photo of Kim appeared next to that of Capt. Ri Jeong-hyeok in the popular show.
The station later issued an apology for its “fatal mistake.”
“The news package was on the issues surrounding Kim Jong Un, who was reportedly in critical condition, which has no relation to the Captain Ri character in the Korean drama series,” a CNN Indonesia news anchor said.
“This error was not intentional, and we apologize for this mistake.”
“Crash Landing on You” is about a South Korean heiress who crash lands in North Korea after a paragliding flight gone wrong, leading to her encounter with the captain in the Korean People’s Army who comes from a powerful family.
Questions about the health of North Korea’s Kim have been swirling since he missed an April 15 commemoration of the 108th birthday of his grandfather, the Hermit Kingdom’s founder Kim Il Sung.
