Kim, repeatedly derided as "Little Rocket Man" by Trump, was "very aware" of his image, the official said, and reacted to comments made about him in a "relaxed" manner by joking about himself from time to time.
On Monday night, Trevor Noah had a lot to say about President Trump's meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. At around the same time that he is intending to meet with North Korea's dictator, Kim Jong Un, for the first time, he is threatening to pull out of the Iran accord without European support for a renegotiation of its terms.
He said "North Korea's recent changes are the results of maximum pressure imposed by Japan, the USA, and South Korea working closely together".
"The offer was made and we've accepted", she said.
Some sceptics see the JSA as a symbol of the Korean War and continued tensions, rather than a place for a peace deal. Trump has vowed to prevent that, by force if necessary. President Moon will meet with Kim in April, while President Trump will meet with the North Korean leader by the end of May.
A senior United States official told reporters, "Kim is the only one who can make decisions" in North Korea.
"In Korea, I'm sticking with Jeju Island".
He said that no venue for the meeting had been agreed upon.
The island hosts an annual "peace and prosperity" forum in May created to attract global leaders.

If talks progress to the point of considering replacing the armistice that ended Korean War hostilities on July 27, 1953, with a peace treaty, as China is a party to that agreement, it could be invited to join. It remains to be seen if Chung will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, as the country is scheduled to hold a presidential election on Sunday. But in North Korea - as of yesterday, several days after the announcement - not a word about it had been reported by the state-run media.

Until now, China has played the key role in mediating the North Korean nuclear standoff, but now its role is rapidly being diminished and it needs Seoul to gauge what is going on with its buffer state.
In recent years, however, relations between Pyongyang and Beijing have cooled, and analysts say Trump may not be keen on providing a major rival like China a chance to steal some of the limelight.
Woo Jung Yeop, a research fellow at the Sejong Institute, also mentioned Thornton and Lambert as strong candidates for leading working-level talks with North Koreans.
Its lack of pizzazz, however, may not provide the backdrop Trump is seeking for his riskiest diplomatic gambit. That's surely unknown. The hermetic kingdom of North Korea is one of the most closed countries in the world.
Kim and Trump's meeting is expected to happen in May. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter have also travelled to Pyongyang.
Addressing the concerns, Trump blamed the dearth of experts at the State Department on the Democratic Party in a tweet on Monday (March 12).
North Korea's silence on its upcoming summits with the United States and South Korea is likely due to caution over organising its stance regarding the meetings, according to South Korea's Ministry of Unification.
