In North Korea, political life revolves around Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un. Yet Kim appeared to have skipped a high-level governmental meeting Thursday and no one seems to know quite why.
Televised footage of the reopening of North Korea's Supreme Peoples Assembly did not show Kim at the meeting, the Associated Press reports. South Korean officials tasked with keeping tabs on the North now believe that it is the first time that Kim has missed a meeting at Pyongyang's parliament since his father died in December 2011.
In fact, Kim, usually a focus of North Korean state media, has not been seen since Sept. 3, when he appeared at a concert with his wife.
This absence has sparked much speculation in the South Korean press, with many suggesting that Kim is in poor health: During the summer, North Korean state television showed him walking with a slight limp, which many had taken as a sign of a wider problem at the time. Chosun Ilbo notes that Kim appeared in the North Korean media earlier this week, but it was noted that he was "laboring on" in the heat: Perhaps a reference to fatigue, the South Korean newspaper suggests.

Could be karma.
Ate some bad cheese.............
Gout, of the head.
He’s become a 4 foot 2 Gout
maybe he got a hold of some bad take out.
It's called a hangover.
I wouldn't worry too much about Kim Jong Un. He's just figured out it's good to be king. He can live the life of a brutal dictator/playboy and not be burdened with attending boring events like high-level government meetings. After all, someone will fill him in on any important matters and it's not like anyone's going to reprimand him.
He looked in a mirror and is too embarrassed to have other people to see, “That hideous thing”.
He found a free pron site?
He ate an under cooked baby ?
Good heavens! Dear Leader has mastered the art of invisibility! All praises to Dear Leader!
Either dead or strung out on drugs.
I’m so Rooney, So very Rooney......
With Western medicine.
Or maybe he has the MLB Network channel and is caught up in watching the pennant races.
Definitely a possibility. If he's running through all the Derek Jeter retirement pieces we might not see him for a few years.
