So, the national intelligence service noted that the North Korean leader has indeed become less likely to appear in public, but this trend is observed at the beginning of the year, Kim Jong-UN attends events 66% less often than usual.
Presumably, this may be due to the desire of the head of the DPRK to focus on internal Affairs and the fight against the spread of the coronavirus.
In April, Kim Jong-UN did not appear in public for some time and missed a ceremony to mark the 108th anniversary of the birth of his grandfather, Kim Il-Sung. This gave rise to rumors about his possible illness, heart surgery, and even death. However, Seoul denied the information, saying that the North Korean leader is in Wonsan and feels well.
Kim Jong-UN interrupted his 20-day absence from public view on may 2 by attending the opening ceremony of the suncheon fertilizer plant.
