Kim Jong Un’s family photo shoot set off speculation about his succession plans. But could it be a warning to North Korean elites?

When Kim Jong Un launched the biggest intercontinental missile North Korea has ever made, the super weapon was always bound to grab the world’s attention.

It’s long been understood the leader and his wife, Ri Sol Ju, have three children — two girls and a son — although their existence has never been officially confirmed by North Korea.
