Kim Jung Un might be pushing up daisies

A Chinese news source is reporting that he died on the table after having a heart procedure done. He missed his grandfather's birthday/national holiday (which is a huge deal) and hasn't been seen in a few weeks and dealing with increasingly severe health issues.


Most recent news is a Chinese medical team was dispatched immediately, Japan is hinting that he's brain dead and in a vegetative state

This could go either way. The North Korean government is in no way to deal with this - the heir is female, which in their culture is pretty much unacceptable and a non starter for Un's replacement. And it doesn't help they've deified the last three generations of their leadership, setting a nearly impossible standard for whomever takes the chair. All they have are NK military generals, many of which are knives out, ready to backstab anyone that threatens their status. I'm not sure the NK people are going to easily buy into a new cult of personality, much less one shoved down their throats.

The best case scenario - NK does what Russia did in the late 80's and Korea tries to reunify (which will be an extremely rocky process).
Worst Case - NK goes all in.

This medical team probably also includes political officials to guide NK so their government doesn't collapse. China needs NK as a buffer to the West/SK.

You're completely right - but the other thing is China will be dealing with a refugee crisis of it's own. The one thing China doesn't need right now is an influx on another few million NK refugees trying to cross their border, while they're still trying to keep a hold over a pandemic.

But, how are they going to keep everything from collapsing when your political system is based in a cult of personality and with three generations of the same family, with no acceptable heir to transfer power to?

They’re not. Neither is Murica.
 
She gonna get the mandatory Kid N Play high top fade if she gets in?

I'm seriously intrigued at how this is all going to play out. I just can't imagine they're going to let her run a full on Patriarchy, or that the old generals/power players will let her run things. She apparently was instrumental in the executions of a few generals when Un was consolidating his power, but she was in the background.

He was trolling everybody. Or maybe it was one of the body doubles that died on the operating table.
