Despite North Korea’s threats of launching a nuclear missile somewhere between South Korea, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., former NBA great Dennis Rodman says he will return to visit his best friend forever Kim Jong-Un in August.

“I’m going back August 1,” Rodman told Gossip Extra when he was in Miami over the weekend. “We have no plans really, as far as what we’re going to do over there, but we’ll just hang and have some fun!”

Rodman — who has said that his dictator bestie is “misunderstood” — dismissed North Korea’s threats, saying that the Soviet Union was totally worse back during the Cold War.

“The Russians were way out there, and they were acting on their threats,” Rodman said. “He [Un] just wants to be loved. He just wants to sit down and talk. That’s all.”

Rodman is still clinging to the hope that he will get the chance to meet President Barack Obama before he goes back to the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea, but said that it is “unlikely,” according to Gossip Extra.

In addition to hanging out with one of the world’s most repressive regime leaders, the former Chicago Bulls player has been known to wear dresses and appear on “Celebrity Rehab.”
