South Korea says North Korea's Kim is not seriously ill: Yonhap

Source: Reuters

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was not gravely ill, two South Korean government sources said on Tuesday, following reports he had undergone a cardiovascular procedure and was now in “grave danger”.

Kim was receiving treatment after undergoing the procedure, a South Korean media report said late on Monday, amid speculation over Kim’s health following his absence from a key anniversary event this month.

The reports about Kim’s health are not true, two South Korean government sources said. The presidential Blue House said there are no unusual signs coming from the North.

Daily NK, a Seoul-based speciality website, cited unidentified sources inside the isolated state saying Kim is recovering at a villa in the Mount Kumgang resort county of Hyangsan on the east coast after undergoing the cardiovascular procedure at a hospital on April 12.

1. He's 37. If he's needing things like stents at that age

chances of his long term survival aren't great unless he realizes the party's over and chucks the cigarettes and booze and overeating. Right now, his body shape screams "metabolic syndrome," just like his orange counterpart's does.

2. "He's 37. If he's needing things like stents at that age ...."

He lead such an unhealthy lifestyle, on top of being an insane, evil, murderous authoritarian hog. And eating fattening cheeses with the consistency of wet mixed concrete almost non-stop helped to clog his arteries to death or near death 🤮

11. Reports are that he's diabetic, hypertensive,

and tips the scales at 290. He also smokes. That's an incredibly bad set of circumstances so I imagine he'll have a fairly short life.

8. Daily NK is a US sponsored website

they only had one source according to their "corrected" account not "sources."

NewsHeadline
[CORRECTION] Source: Kim Jong Un recently received heart surgery

https://www.dailynk.com/english/source-kim-jong-un-recently-received-heart-surgery/

the attempt to attribute the alleged health problems, in part, to Kim's trip to Paektusan, where he was photographed riding a white stallion (the old Chollima myth) gives the story a propaganda frame.
