Kim Jong-un is alive and well, okay, this is becoming complicated now!
According to a South Korean official, his government’s position is firmly that the despot is not dead.
Foreign policy adviser Chung-in Moon said Kim had been living in the Wonsan area of the country since April 13, adding that “No suspicious movements have so far been detected.”
Rumours of his death, which we also reported on here, emerged from the vice director of Hong Kong Satellite Television Shijian Xingzou, who claimed a ‘very solid source’ told her the depot was dead.
A Japanese media outlet also claimed Kim was in a “vegetative state” after he underwent heart surgery earlier in the month.
Kim has not been seen publicly since April 11 when he led a meeting of the ruling Workers’ Party committee of policymakers, North Korean state media said.
