Day by Day Kim Jong Un’s first public view in weeks after rumors that the North Korean leader died has sparked a new round of conspiracy theories claiming that the man seen at a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony could actually be a body double is strong enough.
Although in the tradition of autocrats including Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Saddam Hussein – all were use double body for security.
As the New York Post reported, North Korea’s state-run media published images this weekend showing the country’s leader presiding over the opening of a new fertilizer plant in Suncheon, South Pyongan Province. It was the first time in nearly three weeks that Kim had been seen in public. But the pictures of the smiling and healthy-looking 36-year-old seemed off to many observers, who noted that North Korea is famous for using body double stand-ins for Kim at some public events.
As the New York Post’s report noted, some sharp-eyed observers believed they saw discrepancies in Kim’s facial, hairline, and dental features compared to pictures of him from past appearances. One of those pointing out the apparent differences was human rights activist Jennifer Zeng, who noted the seemingly different features for the man seen in photos from this weekend’s event in a viral tweet. She joined others in sharing pictures of Kim from past events compared to Sunday, which they saw as being clearly different.
“The chipped incisor is a definite giveaway it’s not Kim Jong Un,” one observer tweeted. “So why a body double? If he’s dead why not just announce it and crown his successor?”
There had already been rumors that the pictures of Kim from Saturday’s event showed evidence of a recent surgical procedure. As The Inquisitr noted, many people pointed out what appeared to be needle marks on the North Korean leader’s wrist, which an American medical expert told the New York Post was the sign of a recent cardiovascular procedure, specifically a radial artery puncture.
Leading up to Saturday’s appearance, there had been growing rumors that Kim had either fallen into a vegetative state or died following a botched heart procedure. The rumors were disputed by some world leaders, including President Donald Trump who said that,”I’d rather not comment on it yet. We’ll have something to say about it at the appropriate time.’. But the mystery surrounding Kim’s condition and whereabouts had grown even larger due to North Korea’s tight-lipped approach to the matter, not responding to the reports of his death.
Another two information are very interesting that Kim had initially sparked speculation after missing an April 15 ceremony marking the birthday of his late grandfather, the country’s founding father. Kim also missed a military exercise that accompanied the ceremony, which he is rarely known to miss in his lifetime.
After his appearance showed, the north korean soldier fire on the civil boat of south korea without any reason, the incident tried to believe that Kim Jong Un is still alive.
