  1. Hi all, I am one of the reporters who worked on this video.

    With so many rumors circulating about Kim Jong-un, we didn't want to add more speculation. Instead, we wanted to explore what North Korea experts and observers are doing to keep track of developments in this secretive country.

    Direct access for independent observers such as journalists is highly restricted in North Korea. So what can be done? First, there are satellite images to track motorcades, trains, planes, or ships. This technology also allows us to look at activity at the residences of Kim Jong-un.

    Further, experts also look at state broadcasts for new visuals of Kim Jong-un, and keep an eye on unusual flight or military activities.

    None of these tools provide a magic bullet to figure out exactly what's going on in real time. As one of the experts told me, it's important to rely on multiple sources and to not jump to conclusions.

  2. Maybe he just lost weight and has been walking in plain sight this whole time and nobody noticed 😂😂😂

  3. Well, theres only 1 man who knows for sure and also dumb enough to talk about it publically.
    Thats Trump. So Id just go with the opposite of whatever he says. (He thinks its clever to just say the opposite and no one will figure it out)

  4. Can’t wait for the New York Times obituary. They will hail him a hero and a great leader just like you did with Soleimani. If the NYT tells me it will be sunny ☀️ l would bring my umbrella ☔️. Look for Kim to come out and look like a body builder. Get satellite images of his gym.

  5. He was relapsing to often 💦💦👖 Check out my NoFap Video to help you NEVER relapse! 💪🥇📚

  6. I don't know if it's true or not if he's dead, his sister will take over. maybe things would get better maybe

  7. Hopefully he died. Funny how mortal you are despite brainwashing yourself and civilians to believe otherwise. Good riddance. May you dine with molten rock.

  8. Too funny when these videos come out, then NK sees this and just works around it. Good job displaying all this lovely public info on how to track
