Kim Jong-un's weight loss was explained by a diet




The leader of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, has lost 10-20 kg over the past six months, probably due to a diet. This was stated on Thursday by the deputy of the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea Kim Byung-gi, citing data from South Korean intelligence.

“From the beginning of the year to the middle of June, he lost about 10-20 kg. We don't think it's related to the disease, we think it's because of the diet. He is healthy, “the Chunan Ilbo newspaper quotes the deputy as saying.

On Thursday, intelligence representatives held a meeting with members of parliament.

The National Intelligence Service of South Korea is confident that Kim Jong-un is healthy, including because its employees did not find “evidence of the supply of imported medicines to the clinic where the leader of the People's Republic is usually treated.” Seoul also pointed to the active work of the Chairman of the State Council of the DPRK recently.

In addition, Kim Jong-un probably was not vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to the LDC.

According to South Korean intelligence, at the end of 2020, Kim Jong-un weighed about 140 kg.

In early June, the American Internet portal NK News conducted an analysis of photos and videos with the participation of Kim Jong-un, which are in the public domain, and suggested that the leader of the DPRK has significantly lost weight in recent months. The portal drew attention to Kim Jong-un's wristwatch: its strap was tightening more and more tightly.
