Vfd[edit]

Kim Pyong-il was proposed for deletion. This page is an archive of the discussion about the proposed deletion. This page is no longer live. Further comments should be made on the article's talk page rather than here so that this page is preserved as an historic record. The result of the debate was KEEP

Even if this is true, there is nothing established in this substub indicating that we need an article about this person. RickK 06:31, Oct 10, 2004 (UTC)

  • It is true, although 183 hits in Google is a pathetic return for a political figure. Delete. Mandel 07:53, Oct 10, 2004 (UTC)
  • Redirect to Kim Jong-il; maybe include a small subheading close to the relevant info in that article so the redirect can take you right to it. Securiger 08:09, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC)OK, it's much improved; change my vote to keep. Securiger 09:48, 14 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Merge into Kim Jong-il and Delete (already mentioned in Kim Il-sung). Gazpacho 07:21, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Possibly notable, but article does not establish notability. Gamaliel 18:38, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Change vote to keep based on updates to article. Gamaliel 20:44, 15 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: No real need to redirect, unless anyone can think of something the guy has done that would make him a search target. Geogre 21:04, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep now, but it could use a little copy editing. Geogre 17:25, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Wikipedia is not a family tree. --Improv 01:18, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep or possibly redirect to Kim Il-sung, this isn't just any family. siroχo 03:47, Oct 11, 2004 (UTC)
  • I have added more content to try to beef up the article. Keep. WhisperToMe 06:38, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. The first version was not worth it, but after last users' edits, the article surely is good enough for Wikipedia. Gerritholl 13:46, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Mark Richards 17:37, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. The rewrite shows that it's worth having an article on him. Certainly notable enough for Wikipedia. jguk 21:03, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Important figure in East Asian politics. Gwalla | Talk 02:38, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep member of ruling family and a North Korean diplomat. AndyL 10:20, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. A satisfactory record of political pawnsmanship. Denni 00:28, 2004 Oct 15 (UTC)
  • Keep. A figure important enough and possible future heir. Lev 19:53, 15 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Birthdate[edit]

When was the current Kim Pyong-il born?

Added image[edit]

The Korean Friendship Association has added an image of Kim Pyong Il but does not endorse the text in any way as per revision of --Bjornar 19:03, 18 July 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Political Party[edit]

As he's a diplomat, and a member of the ruling Kim family from North Korea, it would be safe to assume that he's a member of the Korean Worker's Party. The other parties exist in name only, and due to Songbun issues arising from a person belonging to a different party than the KWP, it is reasonable to believe that none of the other two legal parties are involved in North Korean Foreign Policy or Diplomatic representation. I have no idea how one would verify this without conducting Original Research though. 184.90.127.191 (talk) 06:58, 22 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
