the update is quite funny:



Update (1:08 p.m. EST): The rumor that Kim Jong-Un was killed (or died, or even that there was an attempt made on his life, or that anything else untoward happened to him) has been out for more than an hour now, and no legitimate news organizations have reported it. So for now it looks like pure fantasy. It's also firmly in Twitter-meme territory. Kim Jong-Un's name is fertile fodder, as @AngryMnkyFight demonstrates: "Kim Jong Un dead or Kim Jong Undead. Remember kids, spacing is the difference between assassinations and zombies." So's the leader's weight, as comedian Chris Jenkins shows us: "Due to mistranslation, there are rumors that Kim Jong Un was assassinated in China. What it actually said was that he assassinated a buffet."

IF true it's possible the assassin was one of his bodyguards or a trusted member of his staff which would allow direct, unrestricted access to Jong Un. It's going to take a bit to sort this out.

I can't see this being the work of the South. Kim Jong Un presented them the greatest possibility at reaching some lasting peace with the North. I'd say, if true, that this is most likely an inside job.

Since Yahoo and Forbes reported the "rumour", I think it's time to the Chinese authorities say something...

Another link, but with this quote.



However, Xu mentioned later that the assassination rumor may have been "set up" as a distraction from the media buzz surrounding well-known Chinese police officer Wang Lijun, who is reportedly under investigation after initiating unauthorized contact with the U.S. embassy in Chengdu, according to the International Business Times. Xu wrote that "Wang Lijun" has become a trending topic on Weibo.

So, I don't think any news will come out before it's 7:00 AM in Beijing...

Probably not and I'll be at work until 9am Beijing time. No access to news, local or world until I get home.

Interesting and would not surprise me for the fact he likely has no clue how to run the country. Also doesn't help that he had made plans to assassinate his oldest brother, who was supposed to be next in line until he #ed up, but China stopped it from happening. Wouldn't surprise me if this is real that his oldest brother was behind it so he could somehow try to gain control of the country.

A little update: english.donga.com...

''The South Korean military is closely watching movements of North Korean forces after detecting frequent shelling sounds across the Northern Limit Line, the imaginary inter-Korean sea border in the Yellow Sea.''

if this is true I am sure we will have to see which direction the regime changes to. Sometime a Known Evil is better than the Unknown element to follow, know what I mean, Vern?

Gawker is looking for help from its chinese readers:


If You Live In China, Help Gawker Figure Out If Kim Jong-Un Is Dead There


Today we reported that Chinese micro-blogs had exploded in rumors that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un was assassinated this morning in Beijing. Now, we owe it to the internet to see if there's any truth to the rumors. We need you, Chinese Gawker readers!

Photos or it didn't happen!

IF this is true, life is going to get quite messy on the peninsula. I think the North wants to be reunited with the south but China wants a buffer and wont allow. That means they'll sweep in and occupy which, in turn, will lead to a very bloody war.

This might be a good opportunity for South Korea to move in and take over. Get rid of the north and just make it plain old Korea, no more north and south.

So the story says he was murdered in China??

Even less likely.

The story is 99.9% sure to be bunk.

I am thinking this could be a stunt so that 'Lil Kimmy Junior can pinch a fantastic Mark Twain quote:

"The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated"

But who knows for now...
