Kim Jong Un didn’t attend one of the most important events of the nation

In fact, Kim was recently absent from the birthday celebration of his grandfather taking place on 15 April which is considered one of the biggest events of the nation. That later fueled widespread speculations about his well-being. Kim had only been seen 4 days before the birthday party at a government meeting.

Another US official also told CNN that the concerns for Kim Jong Un’s health are truly credible though the severity is not easy to assess.

The reason behind his surgery

Meanwhile, the South Korea-based online newspaper Daily NK which focuses on North Korean updates, claims that on 12 April leader Kim adopts a cardiovascular system procedure. The reasons behind this medical treatment are supposed to be his excessive smoking, overworking and obesity.
