Dennis Rodman's first trip to North Korea raised some eyebrows last month, and now Rodman has hinted that he is working with the FBI on North Korean relations. He is scheduled to return to North Korea on August 1 to "have fun" and spend more time with new friend Kim Jong-un.

"I have been contacted by the FBI and I met with them. They wanted to know what went on and who's really in charge in North Korea," Rodman told The Miami Herald. "I have been invited back to North Korea in August, and I want to go. 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. I do think … that we have to talk to people who want to cause us harm so hopefully they won't. I've been talking to folks for years who don't get what I'm about, but that's cool, 'cause once they walk away from me, they like me," Rodman added.

Rodman previously described Kim Jong-un as "honest and proud, and awesome."

"Guess what, his grandfather, and his father were great leaders, and he's such a proud man. He's proud, his country likes him – not like him, love him, love him. Guess what, I love him. The guy's really awesome," he told the press.

Yet despite Rodman's visit, Kim has threatened action against the United States and its neighbor, South Korea. Tensions have increased greatly between the U.S. and North Korea, though Secretary of State John Kerry has spoken about the effects of North Korea's actions.

"What happens with respect to North Korea can affect Iran, and what happens with Iran can affect North Korea," Kerry said while in Beijing, according to the Wall Street Journal.

"I might be able to keep folks' heads cool," Rodman theorized. "We [are] all going to find a way to get along and keep peace. Peace and love is where it is at," he told the Herald.
