According to well-introduced sources, his younger sister by the name of Kim Yo-jong is the person designated to succeed Kim Jun-Un in case the latter dies.

In a message posted on social networks, the vice-president of HKSTV (Hong Kong Satellite Television) announced the death of the leader before erasing it a few minutes later. This information was relayed by several Chinese media. Whether Kim Jung-Un is dead or alive, one thing is certain, since April 11, the North Korean leader has disappeared from radar.

In its columns, Reuters reported that it was spotted in a northeast region of North Korea. This information was given without further details.
