Kim Jong-woon aka Kim Jong-woong (born 1983 or 1984) is the supposed third son of Kim Jong-il with his late partner Ko Young-hee. He is reportedly known as the "Morning Star King", probably under the instruction of his mother.
Kim Jong-il's former chef, Kenji Fujimoto, revealed details of Kim Jong-woon, stating that he is favoured to be his father's successor. Fujimoto also claimed that Jong-woon is favoured by his father over his elder brother, Jong-chul, reasoning that Jong-chul is too feminine in terms of his character, while Jong-woon is "exactly like his father".
Writing under his pen name, Kenji Fujimoto, a Japanese sushi chef who worked for Kim Jong-il for 13 years wrote a best-selling memoir, "I Was Kim Jong Il's Cook." Specialists following North Korea characterize Fujimoto's accounts as being credible. According to one account, "Fujimoto said, Kim would often bemoan that Kim Jong Chul, his 23-year old son, would never rule because he had turned out to be "like a girl." Fujimoto said Kim doted on his youngest son -- Kim Jong Woon, 18, who looks like the North Korean leader." According to one rumor, Koh Yong Hee had ordered the Workers Party and high officials to call Jong-Woon the "Morning Star King".
