“I assess him to be in a coma, but his life has not ended. A complete succession structure has not been formed, so Kim Yo-jong is being brought to the fore as the vacuum cannot be maintained for a prolonged period,” Chang said.

However, similar reports had surfaced in April, which had suggested that he is in ‘grave danger’ following heart surgery. More so, speculations over Kim’s deteriorating health has been flying for months owing to his heavy smoking, obesity, and workload.
