After North Korea's recent series of ballistic missile test, dictator Kim Jong-un is often photographed with the same three men:

The Trio behind North Korea's Missile Program.

Above: Kim Jong-un inspects the intermediate-range Pukguksong-2 ballistic missile at a launch test with Kim Jong Sik (2nd L), Ri Pyong Chol (3rd L) and Jang Chang Ha (R). Ri Pyong Chol is a former top air force general and now acting as a deputy director of the Workers' Party Munitions Industry Department. Born in 1948, Ri was partly educated in Russia and promoted when Kim Jong Un started to rise through the ranks in the late 2000s. He seems to be "the party's guy" in North Korea's missile program. - Kim Jong Sik is a veteran rocket scientist and Jang Chang Ha is the head of a weapons development and procurement center.
