(Newser) – Kim Jong Un's annual New Year message may have steered clear of digs at the US and Sony, but it did raise one pressing question: What's up with Kim's eyebrows?

Kim has previously been accused of altering his appearance to look like grandfather Kim Il Sung; in this case, the Post suggests he could be emulating another relative: It surfaces a 2011 photo showing Kim Jong Il with similarly short brows. In other news from North Korea, sources say Kim's youngest sister married the son of a top aide last year, Yonhap News reports. (Read more Kim Jong Un stories.)
