  1. Hi all, I am one of the reporters who worked on this video.

    With so many rumors circulating about Kim Jong-un, we didn't want to add more speculation. Instead, we wanted to explore what North Korea experts and observers are doing to keep track of developments in this secretive country.

    Direct access for independent observers such as journalists is highly restricted in North Korea. So what can be done? First, there are satellite images to track motorcades, trains, planes, or ships. This technology also allows us to look at activity at the residences of Kim Jong-un.

    Further, experts also look at state broadcasts for new visuals of Kim Jong-un, and keep an eye on unusual flight or military activities.

    None of these tools provide a magic bullet to figure out exactly what's going on in real time. As one of the experts told me, it's important to rely on multiple sources and to not jump to conclusions.

    If you are interested to see more about how we and others use new technologies and traditional reporting to conduct investigations of closed countries such as North Korea, check out these stories:

  2. He is going to come back stronger than ever with a catch phrase like "Drop it Creep" Can't wait to see RoboKim

    Long Live RoboKim

  3. He is probably just hiding out from the virus because he knows he's a fat slob and a heavy smoker. He likes the drama and attention of people talking about him and wondering about his whereabouts.

  4. Here is the Socratic Argument of the day. Is it fair to want a man dead for his actions or try to change them through peacefulness? Should we want a man dead because of his thoughts or is that form of justice harsh as we are scared of the reality of death ourselves should we want to be put to death for a crime we did ourselves. Think carefully.

  5. Feminist are going to be super jealous of North Korea when is sister takes over.

    An authoritarian regime headed by a strong female leader, that doesn't tolerate dissent. Feminist dream right there.

  6. You gotta admit that even if the audiences in North Korea are made to cheer, they still look happier than any live studio audience with an “applause” sign in America

  7. Says the guys that would run random captions over the same old looping video of Kim Jong Un. You could make him say whatever you wanted whenever you wanted. They all would.
    Eventually the script will be released and you’ll all be saying the same thing in your own journalistic fashion.
