Kim Jong Un’s “haggard and pale appearance”; A worrying sign for North Koreans
Kim Jong: The North Korean leader has looked weak in recent months, fueling outside speculation about his weight loss. State media quoted a citizen as saying that the leader does not look healthy, which is a worrying sign for all residents of the country. However, people have come out in support of Kim as the country is struggling with the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
State media quoted a North Korean resident as saying: “It broke my heart to see a pale and gaunt Kim.” The citizen then went on to say that he hasn’t seen the leader in weeks and that he is “frightening” how weak he looks. “He has lost up to 44 pounds,” the press said.
Kim’s health is of growing concern to outside observers, given his advanced age and precarious situations in the country such as the covid pandemic. Kim, the dictator of North Korea, has a history of heart problems. He inherited the condition from his father and his grandfather. None survived to the age of sixty. This is because they always drank and smoked excessively, which has greatly affected his health.
North Korea can overcome its economic difficulties if the military, political and Party institutions show strong unity,” Kim said during a meeting with North Korean political and military officials, the sources reported. Popular demand for quick changes in the North’s economic policy is increasing,” Kim said. “No one will be able to win the hearts of the people by clinging to outdated ideologies.” It seems that Kim has made his intentions clear and hopes for a change to make the country’s future bright.
