This photo was released as part of a set by North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency. But there's something wrong with it.

Maybe it's another botched PhotoShop job of which North Korea is notorious. After all, Kim Jong-un has rarely been in the public eye recently.

Nope.

Maybe it's because of the incongruity of the head of a brutal regime visiting a garishly decorated orphanage while apparatchiks studiously take notes.

Nope.

Oh, maybe it's because said leader is in fact surely breaching the no-smoking policy at the Pyongyang Baby Home and Orphanage.

Nope.

It's actually because of the act of supreme political dissidence being carried out directly behind Kim's back.
