Good for him?

If he had gained weight they would have been concerned.

If he had stayed the same they would have been concerned.


Dude just can't win, can he?

Slow news day.

His fat lumpy face is just as fat and just as lumpy in the second pic, he just has a bit of a tan.

Also I don't care enough to even finish th

If the famine in North Korea is affecting the political elites then maybe the Kim dynasty is finally going to collapse? A fella can dream, right?
 
2021-06-09 8:56:06 AM  
Looks the same to me.  In one pic his arms are spread wide and in the other they're not.  The rest looks identical.

Obese man has lost weight and is therefore in declining health.

I thought that was a uniquely 'murican thing.
 
2021-06-09 9:03:03 AM  
It looks like he lost maybe 15lbs

According to North Korean state TV, he runs a marathon every morning and can bench press 900 lbs. He would tell you more but has to be at the gym in 26 minutes.
 
2021-06-09 9:06:38 AM  
Oh, good for him, the poor sod. That's what this pandemic has really been great for, hasn't it? Time to all work on ourselves for a while.
 
2021-06-09 9:10:53 AM  
Compare these two pictures of his face, side by side, with a big yellow button right in the middle.
 
2021-06-09 9:11:41 AM  
We are concerned about his health.  He might be getting healthier.
 
2021-06-09 9:13:56 AM  
if he was noticeably slimmer i would have noticed he was slimmer
even that slider thing i dont notice

I lost 10kg/~22lbs. Then Maccas reopened.
 
2021-06-09 9:22:13 AM  
He probably had a bout with the COVID. My guess is it's running pretty rampant there.

I bet you could've lost more if you'd used a self-reward system, like indulging yourself by executing someone with an anti-aircraft gun for every 5 kg.
 
2021-06-09 9:23:37 AM  
remember when he was dead and his sister was in charge?
 
2021-06-09 9:26:56 AM  
He's hunched forward in the new picture. If you're wearing fat person clothes, that will make the front crumple.

Moon pie shortage.
 
2021-06-09 9:30:52 AM  
I thought he was dead a long time ago.
 
2021-06-09 9:31:02 AM  
Probably just water weight taken off by whatever hypertension drug he's on.
 
2021-06-09 9:34:31 AM  
He's run out of children to cannibalize. Big deal.

DarnoKonrad: remember when he was dead and his sister was in charge?


He got better.
 
2021-06-09 9:38:27 AM  
I played with the picture scroll-bar... tbh? Doesn't look any different. Some changes in lighting maybe?

ElecricalPast: Some changes in lighting maybe?


Now that's a new euphemism... he was gone for a month because he "had the electricians in..." Not surprised it took that long. Can be murder to find a good contractor.
 
2021-06-09 9:42:07 AM  
Well North Korea is facing a famine in 2021 so he wants to be a man of the people?
 
2021-06-09 9:42:12 AM  
Gym Jong-un?

I get a big Russian-revolution vibe:

The Kim family will be wiped from history and typically whomever could offer the Chinese the most return would get the nod and lots of arms shipments.

However, NK doesn't have jack shiat except a starving population desperate to flee the country. China always has a ton of domestic problems already and doesn't want to add to fuel to that fire and potentially get some NK fanatic pushing the jolly red history eraser button.

Oh, no. Not Kim. He never lost control.

Good---for his sake and for the sake of stability in the Korean peninsula.

Jong-un is a fairly young man, and none of his children are ready to succeed him (he is believed to have three, the oldest born in 2010). If something happened to him now, a power struggle between Yo-jong and the rest of the court would ensue immediately.

Kim Jong-un is a bastard, like his father and grandfather before him. The sooner north Korea sees the back of the House of Kim as a whole, the better. That alone wouldn't make the untimely death of Jong-un a blessing.
 
2021-06-09 9:53:59 AM  
Ackshually, Jong-il was "Lil' Kim".  Jong-un is "Bigger Lil' Kim".
 
2021-06-09 9:56:53 AM  
It is a start but he will need to put in some more effort to compete with Kim Jong Kook:

Face to face, with the man who sold the world the idea that he had nuclear weapons.
 
2021-06-09 10:00:25 AM  
Maybe he has a dietician slapping the fork out of his mouth.  Of course he'd have to have a line of them after he executes them for it.

That's because Trump keeps scarfing up all the trays of food at the weekly International Despots Buffet.

Fat guy becomes slightly less fat over the course of a year.  He must be dying!

His personal physician told him he was a stroke or heart attack waiting to happen, so he had the doctor shot. Then he told his new doctor to put together a diet and exercise program for him designed to reduce the risk of a stroke or heart attack.
 
2021-06-09 10:08:15 AM  
It just looks like he got a tan? Okay, maybe the double-chin is a little smaller.
