William Cheong is looking for love. Unfortunately for the 43-year-old actor, his appearance has proved a turn-off for would be suitors. That’s because 5ft 4in Cheong is a dead ringer for dead dictator Kim Jong-Il.
“It’s great for my sideline as an actor but not very good for my love life.”
Cheong from West London had hoped the communist leader's recent death would have led to a change of fortune on the dating scene. But his uncanny similarity to the murderous North Korean tyrant has proved too much for the ladies.
“William is a lovely guy who has a great job supervising a hotel and a lovely house - all he needs is someone to share his life,” said a friend of the despotic-faced singleton.
The former North Korean leader died last year December, aged 69. He was succeeded by his son, Kim Jong-Un.
