Millions of North Koreans learned Wednesday that their supreme leader Kim Jong Un was voted Time magazine's "man of the year."

The only problem: He wasn't.

Time's real selection for "Person of Year" was President Barack Obama, but North Korea's official state media told the country's 25 million residents that it was their leader who secured the honor by a landslide.
