김정은이 북한 국영미디어에 나오지 않고 있어서 건강 이상설이 나돌다.


김정은이 공식 석상에 나온 게 4월 11일이다.


4월 15일은 김일성 생일 기념일인데, 김정은이 나타나지 않았다.


2008년 북한 건국 60주년 기념식 퍼레이드에 김정일이 등장하지 않았을 때, 그의 건강 악화설이 뒤따라 나왔다.


나중에 김정일이 뇌졸중으로 건강 악화되어 2011년에 사망했다.

The US is monitoring intelligence that North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, is in grave danger after a surgery, according to a US official with direct knowledge.


Kim recently missed the celebration of his grandfather's birthday on April 15, which raised speculation about his well-being. He had been seen four days before that at a government meeting.

CNN has reached out to the CIA, National Security Council and the State Department for comment. CNN has also sought comment from the South Koreans.


Gathering intelligence out of North Korea is notoriously difficult -- one of the most challenging targets for US intelligence.

North Korea tightly controls any information surrounding its leader, who is treated almost like a deity within the country. His absences from official state media often spark speculation and rumors about his health.

North Korea has no free press and is often a black hole when it comes to the country's leadership. Analysts are heavily reliant on scanning state media dispatches and watching propaganda videos for any semblance of a clue.


Kim last appeared in North Korean state media on April 11. 


April 15 -- North Korea's most important holiday, the anniversary of the birth of the country's founding father, Kim Il Sung -- came and went without any official mention of Kim Jong Un's movements.


Experts are unsure of what to make of Kim's absence from any festivities celebrating his grandfather. 


When North Korean leaders have not shown up to these important celebrations in the past, it has portended major developments. But it has also turned out to be nothing.


Kim Jong Il's absence from a parade celebrating North Korea's 60th anniversary in 2008 was followed by rumblings that he was in poor health. It was later revealed he had a stroke, after which his health continued to decline until his death in 2011.




Kim Jong Un disappeared from the public eye for more than a month in 2014, which also prompted speculation about his health. He returned sporting a cane, and days later South Korean intelligence said that he had a cyst removed from his ankle.


"It's easy to be wrong on this one," said John Delury, a professor of international relations at Yonsei University in Seoul.
