From Daily NK

Kim Jong Un recently received heart surgery



North Korean leader Kim Jong Un recently underwent heart surgery and continues to recuperate from the procedure at a villa outside of Pyongyang, Daily NK has learned. Reports from a Daily NK source in the country suggest that Kim underwent the surgery at the Hyangsan Hospital on Apr. 12. The hospital is located near Mount Myohyang, in North Pyongan Province, and is exclusively for the use of the Kim family. Kim is reportedly under the care of doctors at the Hyang San Villa, which is near the hospital.

A doctor from the Kim Man Yoo Hospital in Pyongyang reportedly managed Kim’s heart operation along with other doctors with the Korean Red Cross General Hospital and the Pyongyang Medical University who typically handle medical issues concerning the North Korean leader. Most of the doctors reportedly returned to Pyongyang after Kim’s condition was considered stable following the surgery. Only some of the doctors have remained near Kim to monitor his health, the Daily NK source said. Around 30 members of Kim’s personal guard along with other guard units are reportedly watching over Hyang San Villa. Guards who were at the villa before Kim arrived have reportedly been stationed elsewhere for the time being.

Questions about Kim’s health were raised by observers of the country when the North Korean leader failed to take part in a ceremony honoring his grandfather, Kim Il Sung, at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun on Apr. 15. North Korean state media, including the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) and Rodong Sinmun, reported that members of the country’s communist party and government officials had shown their respects to the late leader at the palace, but did not mention whether Kim himself attended the ceremony. State media reports did not publish any pictures of Kim at the ceremony. South Korea’s unification ministry stated at the time that it was the first instance that Kim Jong Un had failed to attend the ceremony at the palace to honor his grandfather since he gained power in 2012.
