The latest rumors spread on Weibo, a microblogging service that is often described as the Chinese version of Twitter. The rumored coup sparked tens of thousands of comments, and Chinese authorities blocked all messages with certain keywords, like “North Korean military coup” or “North Korea coup.”
According to some of the rumors, Kim Jong Eun’s uncle — Jang Song Thaek — had helped lead the military uprising. Another version of the story said that the military was going to install Kim Jong Nam, Kim Jong Il’s oldest son, as the new leader. Kim Jong Nam would create a “pro-China regime.”
According to the North's official Korean Central News Agency Kim thanked the world leaders that sent him condolence messages over the passing of his father, Kim Jong-il. The young leader expressed his gratitude by sending written replies to the leaders of Russia, Cuba, Nepal, Mongolia, Bangladesh and dozens of other nations. He also expressed his wish for stronger bilateral ties between North Korea and the countries mentioned.
Many perceive the action as Kim's first official foreign diplomacy move. Although China, North Korea's major ally and benefactor was not included on the list. Observers say Kim might have sent a private letter or arranged other plans.
Kim Jong-Un Dead? That's The Rumor
In the past two hours, Twitter has exploded with unsubstantiated rumors that the new North Korean dictator died in Beijing today and that a coup is underway in North Korea. All rumor of course, and one that appears to have been started on China’s twitter-like platform Weibo. As the story goes, a couple assassins barged into Kim’s room in Beijing and shot him, before being shot and killed themselves by bodyguards.
If Kim is dead, if there is a coup underway in North Korea, it’s likely because after his magnanimous visits to their bases in recent weeks, the army decided that Kim is too much of a softie to keep the North Koreans sealed tighly in their gulag.

The sites the Wikipedia article links you to redirects you to the main TVB page. I've found the section of the site where you can find their news programs but they all link back to the main page.
A Japanese daily says China is boosting the mobility of its troops stationed near its border with North Korea in preparation for possible contingencies in the North. In a special report on Sunday, the Asahi Shimbun quoted a Chinese military official as saying that the Chinese military is raising its mobility so that it can enter Pyongyang within two hours in case of an emergency in the North. The daily added that the Academy of Military Science, a think tank of the People's Liberation Army, has been operating a crisis management team on the Korean Peninsula since 2007, when rumors of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il’s health problem began to emerge. The Asahi Shimbun said the think tank also drew up a secret report in 2010. The report called for China to place top priority on preventing nuclear proliferation in the event major changes occur within the North, as the North’s nuclear weapons development could lead to a full-scale war on the Korean Peninsula.
