Kim Jong-un Has Been AWOL for 23 Days, North Korean Media Says He’s Sick


For the past 23 days, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un — usually a ubiquitous presence in state media — has gone AWOL, prompting speculation about his health.

After Kim failed to show up to a session of North Korea’s rubber-stamp parliament on Friday, state media reported that the leader “is not feeling well,” and is suffering from an “uncomfortable physical condition.”

There’s no indication of what exactly is ailing Kim, but rumors suggest he may have gout.
