Tales of extravagance, unpredictability and mad boozing in the world's most secretive kingdom.
The dictator is so appreciative of Fujimoto’s cooking that he gifts the chef a Mercedes V450 and a North Korean license. Fujimoto and Kim Jong-il go on to forge a unique relationship via the medium of sushi.
As Fujimoto recalls, he wakes up in the middle of his post-wedding banquet – having downed a bottle of Hennessy – to discover that someone has shaved off all of his pubic hair while he was blacked out. According to the chef, boozing is part and parcel of life in Kim Jong-il’s inner circle.
The chef does his food shopping not by car, but airplane. For fruit, he goes to Singapore; for caviar, Russia or Iran; for fish, his native Japan.
Feeling the tide turn against him, Fujimoto plots to escape once his house arrest is over. Just as food brought him into Kim Jong-il’s palace, he believes it might be able to get him out.

"plots to escape" - oh dear... now he's in it.
Kim "the haircut" Jong Il will discover your plotter ways and use you for anti-aircraft gun target practice.

So, North Korea is just like everywhere else after all..
In the late 70s and early 80s Mercedes built 3 cars with the 450 name, a convertible, a 2 door hard top and the 450SEL V8, the 450 Sel was top of the line with a 6.9l litre engine. It is safe to assume someone dropped the 8 and that is what the author is referring to. The car is still very coveted today as it has the largest engine ever placed in a MB.
