Pyongyang: North Koreans are extremely ‘worried’ and ‘heartbroken’ after seeing their leader Kim Jong Un in an ‘emaciated’ state. The visibly slimmer looking Kim Jong Un, has now become the cause of concern among his countrymen.
The rare public comment on Kim's health come after foreign analysts noted in early June that the autocratic leader, who is believed to be 37, appeared to have lost a noticeable amount of weight.
"Seeing respected general secretary (Kim Jong Un) looking emaciated breaks our people's heart so much," the man said in an interview aired by state broadcaster KRT on Friday.
"Everyone is saying that their tears welled up," he said.
In a clip, which Reuters could not identify found a huge crowd of residents of Pyongyang watching a big screen on the street showing a concert attended by Kim Jong Un after a meeting with the Workers’ Party of Korea., though no details could be retrieved on the sudden weight loss of the N. Korean premiere.
