Fatal disease? Discussions are active on social media

Seoul: The suspicion that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is ill is being discussed again. The fatigue of Kim, who is considered the world’s greatest dictator, has led to suspicions that it is a deadly disease. These speculations are heightened by the fact that Kim, who does not appear on stage much, has been living in complete anonymity in recent times.

Disease discussions are progressing on social media, comparing Kim’s old and new pictures. Based on a photo of him released at a recent party meeting, there is a lot of speculation. His sudden weight loss has raised concerns among the people of North Korea, according to foreign media reports. Some people believe that weight loss is due to disease.

Discussions about Kim’s body fatigue began in early June. It has been a long time since he appeared in public. North Korean experts had earlier said that Kim had lost a lot of weight. A month later, when Kim suddenly appeared in front of the media for a party meeting, discussions began comparing the two films.

A few days ago, Kim’s non-attendance at the birth anniversary of the country’s founder and grandfather, Kim Il Sung, sparked a heated debate. In 2014, news broke that Kim was ill. His health is reportedly being monitored by international intelligence agencies, experts and the media.

Meanwhile, there were reports that North Korea was facing a severe food shortage. Last year’s cyclone caused massive crop damage and reduced grain production. Then there was the news that the prices of goods had gone up. According to international media reports, the price of a kilo of fruit is Rs 3,336. The price of coffee powder has gone up to Rs 5,167 per pack, which is above Rs 7,000 per kg.
