North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s weight has suddenly decreased. Giving information about this, the highly controlled state media has said that the people of the country are worried about this matter. A statement from a Pyongyang resident was also broadcast on the channel, who expressed concern about the health of the country’s supreme leader after watching the latest video footage of Kim.
The rare comment on Kim’s health comes at a time when some foreign analysts said in early June that the 37-year-old leader had lost a significant amount of weight. On state broadcaster KRT, the man said, “Our people are heartbroken to see the respected Secretary-General (Kim Jong Un) lean. Everyone is saying that their tears have spilled.
In the clip, residents of Pyongyang are seen watching the concert on a big screen, with Kim and other party officials present. It was organized after the workers’ party meeting. However, the state media has not given any information about the reason why Kim’s weight has decreased. When Kim first appeared in June after being away from public events for nearly a month, analysts for Seoul-based website NK News said Kim had lost weight.
The international media, spy agencies, and experts keep a close watch on Kim’s health amid Kim’s stronghold over North Korea and uncertainty over his successor. The absence of North Korea’s founder Kim I Ki on the birthday sparked speculation last year about Kim’s health. Even his death was announced in some reports.
Everybody in North Korea is devastated over pioneer Kim Jong Un’s clear weight reduction, said a unidentified inhabitant of Pyongyang cited on the nation’s firmly controlled state media, subsequent to watching ongoing video film of Kim.
The uncommon public remark on Kim’s wellbeing come after unfamiliar experts noted toward the beginning of June that the imperious pioneer, who is accepted to be 37, seemed to have lost a perceptible measure of weight.
“Seeing regarded general secretary (Kim Jong Un) looking withered makes our’s people extremely upset so a lot,” the man said in a meeting circulated by state telecaster KRT on Friday.
“Everybody is saying that their tears gushed,” he said.
In the clasp, which Reuters couldn’t autonomously confirm, Pyongyang occupants were seen watching a big screen on the road showing a show went to by Kim and gathering authorities after a whole gathering of their Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK).
The transmission didn’t give any subtleties on what had prompted the weight reduction.
At the point when Kim returned in state media in June after not being found out in the open for close to 30 days, experts at NK News, a Seoul-based site that screens North Korea, noticed that his watch had all the earmarks of being attached more firmly than before around an evidently slimmer wrist.
Given Kim’s firm grasp on power in North Korea – and the vulnerability over any designs for a replacement – worldwide media, spy organizations, and experts intently watch his wellbeing.
Early last year, hypothesis about Kim’s wellbeing detonated after he missed the birth commemoration festivities of state author Kim Il Sung on April 15, just to return in broad daylight toward the beginning of May.
In 2014, state media revealed that Kim was experiencing “distress”, after a delayed period out of the public eye.
