A wild rumor has surfaced once again on social media about Kim Jong Un that he is dying but this time the experts are saying that do not believe on them. Jang Sung-min, a former South Korean minister said on Friday that he has been informed by an unnamed source in China about Kim Jong Un that he is on coma but his life has not ended.
Social Media was flooded with the rumor that Kim Jong is no more or near his end. New York Post and The Mirror also reported about Kim Jong that he is in coma. And the news about her sister given all the powers and overseeing the relationship with South Korea spread like a wild fire. However the experts and analyst on North Korea are of the view that this is just a rumor and the source of the news is also not reliable.
