North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un Reportedly In Coma And His Sister Is Ready To Control
It is a known fact that North Korea is not known for having a transparent government. Not much is known about their Supreme leader Kim Jong-un’s daily movements. There has always been a cloud of mystery around Kim Jong-un. But, during the recent few months, there have been rumors spreading across the Internet that the Supreme leader could be dead or very ill. This has risen from the lack of sighting of Kim Jong-un this year. A new rumor claims that the leader is in a coma and his sister is set to take charge of the nation.
1Kim Jong-un in a coma
Shocking news has taken the Internet by storm as a South Korean diplomat has claimed that the leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un is reportedly in a coma. This comes after there was speculation for months over the lack of sightings on the leader as well as supposed health concerns.
2Where does the news come from?
This news comes from a South Korean diplomat who claims that the Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un is in a coma and his sister is set to take control of North Korea. This news came as a shock to both North and South Korea. There have been speculations about Kim’s health over the past few months.
3Who made the claims?
The claims were made by Chang Song-min, an ex-aide to late-South Korean president Kim Dae-jung. According to his claims, the DPRK or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is hiding the truth about Kim Jong-un’s health. He says that the leader is alive but in a coma which is why we haven’t seen him much this year.
4Could this be true?
The reason why this claim has gone viral is because of the lack of public appearances the leader of North Korea has made this year. The coronavirus pandemic has kept many national leaders hidden indoors but they still made public appearances but not Kim for quite some time.
5The rumor mill
The rumor mill began in May of 2020 when rumors began spreading on the Internet that the North Korean leader had passed away after a botched surgery. Many began saying he was in a coma. Regardless questions began rising about the leader’s health condition. This was also when the rumor that Kim Jong-un’s sister was coming to power.
6But then he appeared
On May 3rd the Leader of North Korea made a public appearance after 20 days of not being seen amid health rumors. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attended a fertilizer factory completion ceremony and the media reported on his great shape and good health. He walked around the factory and then proceeded to cut the ribbon for the ceremony.
7This raised some questions
The timing of his public appearance amidst the health rumors seemed quite odd. On the one hand, people were happy to see the leader of North Korea healthy and in action but at the same time, more rumors began spreading. Seeing the convenient timing for his appearance people began speculating that it was a body double.
8Kim Jong-un has used body doubles
It is a known factor that Kim Jong-un uses body doubles in some public appearances. Since his life is in constant danger he takes the extra step to make sure he does not get assassinated. He was exposed for using body doubles multiple times and this was no exception.
9People pointed out irregularities
People online began pointing out irregularities between the Kim Jong-un seen at the factory ceremony and the one seen a year prior. There were many subtle things that people noticed about the facial features of the Supreme leader that they found to be rather confusing.
10The sister could be in charge now
According to Chang Song-min some powers of the supreme leader have been handed over to his 33-year-old sister Kim Yo-jong. This has not been declared or made public by the North Korean media. It was known that his sister was to take over during a time of his absence.
