Kim Jung-Il Successor

I was wondering if his heir will make it a point to continue emphasis on Confucian values by waiting three years in order to take his father's position. If so what will be the implications of this?

I was actually thinking about this too. A lot of people believed that Kim Jong-Il's oldest son would take over, but due to some incidents a lot of people are claiming that Kim Jong-Nam has fallen from favor and most likely won't take over his father's place. Kim Jong-Il also has two "official" sons by a later wife, but I began to wonder what would happen if Kim Jong-Il died without a heir. What would happen to North Korea?
