He is Kim Jong-un’s shadow, following the North Korean president from missile launch to military parade.

General Kim Rak-gyom is often seen smiling and joking with his subordinates but, much like his despotic leader, he is far more dangerous than his jovial exterior suggests.

As head of North Korea’s rocket command, he is believed to have his finger on the proverbial button, with as many as 60 suspected nuclear warheads at his disposal.

Hours before Kim Jong-un announced he was looking into the logistics of striking the remote Pacific island, host to thousands of US servicemen and submarines, Donald Trump vowed ‘fire and fury’ if he threatened his country.

General Kim Rak-gyom went one further by branding Trump’s remarks ‘a load of nonsense’ – and the US president ‘senile’.

‘Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason,’ he went on, claiming the Guam plan would be completed by mid-August.

He said the North planned to launch four missiles simultaneously, which would take precisely 17 minutes 45 seconds to travel 2,086 miles before coming down 24 miles from Guam – just outside US territorial waters.

And, if his rhetoric is to be believed, he has his sights on a US military base in Guam, around 2,100 miles from the Korean Peninsula.

Little is known about the mysterious officer, who today went toe-to-toe with Trump in one of the most striking escalation between the two nations.

In fact news outlets, including those in neighbouring South Korea, cannot even seem to agree on which one of Kim Jong-un’s entourage he actually is.

We do know Kim Rak-gyom was promoted from two to four-star general in June 2012, around six months after Kim Jong-un ascended to power.
