Watch out, Wolfpack! Kim Jong Un has decided that he wants to join that wild "Hangover" bunch of partiers portrayed by Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha and Zach Galifianakis.
Or maybe the North Korean dictator is trying to get a cameo in "Hangover IV."
According to a report by FoxNews.com, the North Korean dictator once got blackout drunk while meeting with top military leaders. During that meeting, he went on a rant about their failure to produce a successful "military satellite" – a phrase often taken to mean an intercontinental ballistic missile.

"Not being able to develop one military satellite is the same as committing treason," the Korea Times reported Kim ranted during an all-night ragefest directed at his military leaders — just before ordering them to write letters of apology and self-criticism.
At some point after giving those orders, the dictator went to bed, feeling the effects of a reported overindulgence of "spirits."
The next morning, when he awoke after having slept it off, he was stunned to see the military chiefs at his villa. He'd drunk enough to black out and forget his tirade of the previous night – much as the protagonists of the "Hangover" trilogy had.
"Why are you gathered here?" the North Korean dictator asked according to the FoxNews.com, adding: "Be careful about your health because you are all old."

The greeting prompted the assembled generals to sob with relief, leading Kim to think he had touched them with his kindness.
An anonymous North Korean source told the Tokyo Shimbun, "They were relieved because they thought they were going to be purged."
The Tokyo Shimbun's source added, "Everyone is showing loyalty out of fear of being executed and no one dares speak against Kim."
The North Korean dictator was portrayed in the 2014 comedy movie "The Interview," which starred James Franco and Seth Rogen.
In 2004, Kim Jong Un's father, Kim Jong Il, was a featured character in "Team America: World Police," a marionette movie done by the producers of the hit TV series "South Park."
