Hot New Hip Hop has taken over a report from the Japanese media which claimed that the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, was in a vegetative state. Other media, such as that of Hong Kong, reported that the Korean leader had died.
Interestingly, Kim Jong Un has been in the media several times in the past week due to his absence from an event for Le Jour du Soleil, which pays tribute to his late grandfather. There are rumors that the North Korean authoritarian has fallen ill, but the South Korean leader says the rumors are false.Kim Jong-un Rumored To Be Dead Following Weeks-Long Absence
Hot New Hip Hop claims, however, that Kim Jong Un could be dead, at least according to the vice director of media in Hong Kong, who also happens to be the niece of a Chinese official.
This comes after reports that China has dispatched a medical team to verify the North Korean politician after rumors of his disappearance. The International Business Times reported comments from a “very solid source,” which claims that rumors started about Weibo, a social media application.
Other media, such as that of Japan, claim that the North Korean dictator simply fell ill after undergoing cardiac surgery. TMZ reported that Kim Jong Un had to undergo a stent procedure following some sort of incident earlier this month.
