Former NBA star and Kim Jong-un pal Dennis Rodman announced that he'll be headed back to North Korea on August 1 to hang out  and "Have some fun" - despite recent tensions and threats from the nation.

"I'm going back August 1.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 first told Gossip Extra.

Rodman also said he's fully aware of North Korea's threats towards America.

"I'm not a total idiot. I know what Kim Jong-un is threatening to do regarding his military muscle. I hope it doesn't happen because America will take whatever actions to protect America and our allies."

The last time Rodman visited Jong-un, he returned praising the dictator, calling him a "great guy" and a "friend."
