Dead or Alive – My Exclusive on North Korea’s Kim Jong-un

Over at Liberty Nation, I had the pleasure of working on an exclusive story regarding North Korea, Kim Jong-un, and the future of Pyongyang.

I interviewed a couple of experts, and it was hard to narrow down the piece to 1,600 points. There was just so much content I could have worked with, but my editors did a great job working with me on this story.

Here is an excerpt of my piece, titled “Dead Or Alive – NK’s Kim Jong-Un – Liberty Nation Exclusive“:

Is North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un dead or alive? It all depends on the source of information.

The confusion over the health status of the Supreme Leader is par for the course for a reclusive and restrictive regime, explains Board Member of the North Korean human rights organization HanVoice, Jack Kim, in an exclusive interview with Liberty Nation. Kim also echoed a widely accepted opinion that it is incredibly difficult for outsiders to report on the internal developments inside Pyongyang since officials possess an iron grip over information.

Until North Korea’s leader re-emerges, the media speculation on his well-being will be rampant. For now, the chatter is on the potential successor. The punditry class believe the two favorites are Kim Yo-jong, his sister; and Kim Pyong-il, his uncle. Whether it is unfolding at the present or it is in the future, the HanVoice founder suggests there will likely be an “internal struggle” to lead North Korea.
