The source , 38 North , seem legit and have a history of calling these things so it may well be true , the question is would anyone be surprised if it's true.
Determining the operational status of the reactor is particularly difficult at this time. Although a small water discharge is visible from the cooling water outfall pipe going into the river, that discharge is less than has been observed previously when the reactor was fully operational. It may simply be that this is all the water needed at this time to carry away the heat from the residual radioactivity in the reactor, if the reactor is currently shut down. Additionally, unlike last February, no visible steam is being vented from the generator building that would confirm that the reactor is operating, but we cannot rule out that this is simply due to the time of year and insufficient image resolution.

I've already stated that I think Kim Jung-un is being deceptive as always and that he is just buying time for himself. To me it looked like the talks were an attempt to make himself look better after his nuclear test site had already collapsed on its own.
