The grandson of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il is going to start studying at an elite French university next month, the weekly L'Express reported Monday.
Kim Han-sol is the son of Kim Jong-il's eldest son Jong-nam and the nephew of current leader Kim Jong-un.
He will attend the Paris Institute of Political Sciences' Le Havre campus, joining the Europe-Asia undergraduate program. French President Francois Hollande and former President Jacques Chirac as well as France's deputy minister for digital economy Fleur Pellerin also graduated from that school.
Kim Han-sol graduated from the United World College in Mostar, Bosnia in May of this year and has been staying in Macau with his father. He drew global attention when he called his uncle Jong-un a "dictator" in an interview last year with Finnish TV. Han-sol said his father has "no interest" in politics and that he had never met his grandfather.
