NKorea's Kim Jong Un appears in public amid health rumors

Source: Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korean state media says leader Kim Jong Un has made his first public appearance in 20 days amid rumors about his health.

The Korean Central News Agency said Saturday that he attended a ceremony marking the completion of a fertilizer factory in Suncheon, near the capital of Pyongyang, with other senior officials, including his sister, Kim Yo Jong.

Photos from the ceremony weren’t immediately released.

Kim Jong Un had been last seen during a ruling party meeting on April 11 to discuss coronavirus prevention. Speculation about his health swirled after he missed the April 15 celebration of the birthday of his late grandfather and state founder, Kim Il Sung, the country’s most important holiday.

8. SK said he was alive, so I think he probably is. Maybe he's been hiding away from the virus

after surgery.

11. Why were the photos not available for release

Need to do a little photoshop touch up on them? If they ever release any and expect the world to just believe them.

16. He's dead, Jim.

I think SK is saying he's alive to appease NK. Sort of like saying, look, figure out your shit and don't start a war by accident by shooting off missiles, and we'll just pretend he's still alive and in charge, until you say his sister is the new dear leader or whatever.
