North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un’s absence has led to a flurry of speculations about his health and whereabouts and now internet users have ‘serious doubts’ whether he has been using a body double at his recent public engagements. Kim recently attended an event at a fertilizer factory which was also the first report of his appearing in public since April 11. His ‘mysterious’ missing from that public amid the coronavirus pandemic and his rumoured heart surgery has led to a number of conspiracy theories.
From ‘Kim is having surgery’ to ‘Kim is dead’, his 20-day absence from the public eye led to several speculations. However, his recent attendance on May 1 dismissed all the rumours relating to his health. While several media outlet reported on his activities, internet users refuse to believe the reports and suggest that the North Korean leader is probably using a body double to compensate for his ailing health.
Look at these two images and note the teeth! The first one is Kim Jong Un a few weeks ago (the real one?), the second is KJU today as shown by RT. Note the gap in the teeth of the second image. A body double? pic.twitter.com/822ujeEOUZ— Rik W 🇬🇧 (@Rik_J_W) May 2, 2020
Was the "Kim Jong Un" who cut the ribbon at that fertilizer plant a body double or nah? https://t.co/QZvX2v5p08— Matt Parlmer 🌐 🌷 🌇 (@mattparlmer) May 3, 2020

It’s not the same person. But not going to argue it. Hairy moment when I thought my information was wrong. It wasn’t wrong though.— Louise Mensch (@LouiseMensch) May 2, 2020
Not sure whether it suits us to go along with it or not, but these two are not the same. pic.twitter.com/rV3qgK281p
No it isn’t.— Louise Mensch (@LouiseMensch) May 2, 2020
Teeth, Cupid’s bow, others.
Totally different. Look at those gnashes, if you must. pic.twitter.com/efPmn0f5ox
