North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s absence from the public scene for the past 2 weeks has fueled reports and rumors that he might be dead or in serious condition.

What caused the worldwide mounted speculations on Saturday? Multiple outlets cited sources in China and Japan claiming that Kim, who is believed to be 36, is in grave condition after undergoing through a cardiovascular surgery, or he might even be dead.

Speculation about Kim’s health first appeared due to his absence from the anniversary of the birthday of North Korea’s founding father and Kim’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung, on April 15th.

Furthermore, a special train possibly belonging to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was spotted earlier this week at a resort town in the country, according to satellite images reviewed by a Washington-based North Korea monitoring project.

“The train’s presence does not prove the whereabouts of the North Korean leader or indicate anything about his health but it does lend weight to reports that Kim is staying at an elite area on the country’s eastern coast,” the report said.

What is described by Washington-based North Korea monitoring project 38 North as a special train possibly belonging to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is seen in a satellite image with graphics taken over Wonsan, North Korea April 21, 2020.

So far the accuracy of these reports is doubtful, as any news update arriving from Pyongyang is out of the question. Keeping in view that Japanese and South Korean newspapers killed off his grandfather, Kim Il Sung, and his father, Kim Jong Il, numerous times in the past before either man actually died.

As of Sunday, a new set of rumors started to circulate on social media that if Kim Jong Un is really dead, his younger sister Kim Yo Jong would step in as the new dictator.

Reporting from inside North Korea is notably difficult because of tight controls on information. It’s a Million-dollar question whether Kim Jong Un is dead or not?
