North Korea tightly controls any information surrounding its leader, who is treated almost like a deity within the country. His absences from official state media often spark speculation and rumors about his health.

"But, over the years, there have been a number of false health rumors about Kim Jong-un or his father. We"ll have to wait and see."

Kim Jong Un disappeared from the public eye for more than a month in 2014, which also prompted speculation about his health. He returned sporting a cane, & days later South Korean intelligence said that he had a cyst removed from his ankle.
"It"s easy to lớn be wrong on this one," said John Delury, a professor of international relations at Yonsei University in Seoul.
