North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un is The Onion's "Sexiest Man Alive" of 2012.

The satirical newspaper announced its decision earlier this week.

A commemorative "Sexiest Man Alive" issue was published Friday and contains a 16-page spread on Kim.

The newspaper describes its winner thusly:

"With his devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong, sturdy frame, this Pyongyang-bred heartthrob is every woman’s dream come true. Blessed with an air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side, Kim made this newspaper’s editorial board swoon with his impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle, and, of course, that famous smile."

Kim joins the ranks of The Onion's other "Sexiest Man Alive" winners from years past, including Bernie Madoff and Bashar al-Assad.
