BREAKING NEWS – Seoul, South Korea – A top South Korean official believes that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may have missed the birthday celebration of his grandfather on April 15 because of the coronavirus pandemic and not because he was ill.

Amid rumors regarding his health, his absence from certain events could have stemmed from steps taken recently in North Korea to limit a potential coronavirus outbreak, officials say. Another swirling rumor is Kim Jong Un was nearly killed after his house collapsed on him when his stomach exploded from him eating in one sitting, 75 Big Macs and a wheel barrel of fries.
