North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is now in the spotlight. Not because of his policy, but because of his appearance which is considered thinner.
Kim Jong-Un reappeared after several months of being out of sight. Kim Jong-Un was caught on camera attending a concert with officials of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) after the WPK plenary meeting. There, Kim Jong-Un looks thinner than usual.
Analysts at NK News — a Seoul-based North Korea monitoring website — noted that Kim Jong-Un’s watch appeared to be worn more tightly than before with his wrists looking slimmer.
A photo published by the Korean Central News Agency also shows a comparison of Kim Jong-Un’s appearance in February 2021 and June 2021. Kim Jong-Un’s cheeks are now slimmer.

As reported Reuters, Monday (28/6/2021), an unidentified Pyongyang resident as reported by North Korea’s national television, KRT, said that everyone in North Korea was sad because Kim Jong-Un seemed to have lost weight.
Public comments about Kim Jong-Un’s health condition are rare. In early June, several foreign analysts emphasized that Kim Jong-Un, believed to be 37, appeared to have lost a lot of weight.
“Seeing the respected Secretary-General (Kim Jong-Un) looking skinny breaks the heart of our people,” said the Pyongyang man in an interview broadcast by KRT on Friday (25/6) local time.
“Everyone said they had tears in their eyes,” he added.
Until now, there is no more detailed information about what made the North Korean leader lose weight
