Kamakailan lamang, may mga ulat na ang pinuno ng Hilagang Korea ay sumasailalim sa operasyon. Gayunman, ayon sa isang artikulo mula sa TMZ, isang bise director na suportado ng news outlet na Hong Kong na pamangkin ng isang Foreign Minister mula sa Tsina ang tumagas sa balita na namatay ang diktador. Ang babae ay nai-post ang ulat sa platform ng social media ng China, ang Weibo para sa halos 15 milyong mga tagasunod. Bukod dito, binanggit niya ang isang "napaka solidong mapagkukunan" patungkol sa mga pag-aangkin na naipasa ni Kim.
The woman posted the report on the Chinese social media platform, Weibo for nearly 15 million followers. Moreover, she cited a “very solid source” regarding claims that Kim had passed.
Meanwhile, a Japan media outlet cited that Kim Jung-Un was in a vegetative state after a failed heart surgery. Kim felt pain in his heart in early April causing him to fall down while visiting the countryside.
Following this, Kim needed to under a stent procedure. However, the media outlet claimed it may have not been done fast enough. Additionally, some reports also stated that the surgeon who was working on Kim had shaky hands.
As per the report, Kim hadn’t made a public appearance to his usual public affairs. On Saturday, North Korea celebrates the founding of the Korean People’s army in 1932.
International reporters emphasized that if Kim was doing well enough, they would find a way for him to show up to blast rumors of his death out of the water. However, if he doesn’t show it could signify or confirm that something is wrong.
