This rare photo of reclusive North Korean leader Kim Jong-il with his younger sister Kyong-hui (right) and his father Kim Il-sung (center) was recently published by a nkleadershipwatch.wordpress.com, a blog dedicated to North Korea issues.
It was reportedly taken in 1966, when Kim Jong-il worked for the Workers Party after graduating from Kim Il Sung University.
It is the first color photo of him as a young man released so far.
