North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is either dead, brain-dead or just fine, depending on which Asian media report you believe.
A Hong Kong broadcast network claimed Saturday that Kim died, citing a “very solid source.” A Japanese magazine, meanwhile, reported late Friday that he is in “a vegetative state.” On Kim’s home turf, the North Korean media has acted as if everything is perfectly normal.

As an aside, the New York Post is a better paper than the Washington Times, but still not the most reliable.
Have you considered stupidity as an explanation

A non reliable paper reporting unsourced rumours. How bad could it be?

Sounds like he is at the beach.
SEOUL (Reuters) - Satellite imagery showing recent movements of luxury boats often used by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his entourage near Wonsan provide further indications he has been at the coastal resort, according to experts who monitor the reclusive regime.

Speculation about Kim’s health and location erupted after his unprecedented absence from April 15 celebrations to mark the birthday of his late grandfather and North Korea’s founder, Kim Il Sung.

On Tuesday, North Korea-monitoring website NK PRO reported commercial satellite imagery showed boats often used by Kim had made movements in patterns that suggested he or his entourage may be in the Wonsan area.

I realize that. This whole story is mostly nothing.
Its just something to speculate about in a time of enforced idleness.

I figured lpm was an amorphous genderless blob, but whatever.
