He was with cane, walking like an invalid 90 years old on pic in USA media. He needed to lose weight anyway, N Korean Govt officials are reconciliation attitude with S. Korea now. Maybe officials are not eager to give Kim gets medical advice?

Might be a clone but only the pudgy Un can make baggy pants look so dang...baggy. Quite the fashion un-statement!

Whatever it is that ails him I hope he suffers as much as his people.....

It's a ringer. L'il Kim has been offed and replaced with a more pliable alternative.

That new coiff definitely channels Grandaddy Kim.

Yeah, I agree. Based on media photos, I'm guessing he was getting a haircut.

I like little, fat little Kimmy, he is kind a cute baby face. but to correct Paul Vulay; one does not say "fat head" it is rather a "meat head".

Was he looking for a new barber?

I don't know... the picture seems legit. They can be dated by the size of his chin and this one looks recent.

He was walking funny. how they will maintain the image of the super dude when he is seen hobbling around is a poser.

Always thought those NK officer hats were a bit comical. Sort of like trying on dad's hat instead of his shoes.

Old picture or clone sounds about right.

They can say whatever they want, but there's no live shot.

But the photo shown is from a year ago, from DPRK KCNA news' archives. If the "North’s official KCNA news agency" can't even provide a photo of the recent event, how do we know they're not lying?

Of course, there is nothing in the photo, other than KCNA's report, that verifies a single thing in the report. The photo could have been taken last week, last month, or last year.

Toldja not to worry.

Bad case of the gout.
