Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Leader Kim Jong Un

Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) leader Kim Jong Un appeared at a military parade. He is noticeably thinner, as seen on state TV.

On the country’s 73rd anniversary, Kim Jong Un presided over a display of military force in Pyongyang early Thursday.

In June, the state press reported that DPRK citizens broke down in tears as they watched a dramatically thinner Kim Jong Un.

Following an absence of most of May, in which many people raised questions about the health of the 37-year-old leader, the leader returned to public view with a much thinner figure.
