According the numerous news sources, Kim Jong Nam lost his "crown prince" position after he tried to visit the Tokyo Disneyland with a forged passport.

Yes, but... such things happen. Privileged elite always do such decadent things. There are regularly news that they are doing actually much more, mostly related to various earthly pleasures (women, meal line is the most known about the North Korean elite). Compared to these, a covered visit of the decadent USA culture does not seem for me so bad.

However, this little "nuance" costed for Kim Jong Nam first his "crown prince" position, and ultimately to his life1.

Why? Why was it so bad for him, while using a "pleasure squad" is okay?

1He was executed not for that, but for being a CIA informant - however, if he does not visit Disneyland, he would sit now in Kim Jong Un's seat.
