ANALYSIS/OPINION:

North Korea’s dictator has been packing on the pounds. It seems he has a lust for cheese and pleasure squads of young Korean girls. In December, he was shown limping, favoring his right leg, in further evidence of ill health, during a state media video showing him visiting a shoe factory. He has had problems with his left leg before.

“Kim’s leg injuries have been linked to obesity in the past and recent pictures show the Korean leader appears to have put on extra weight. His waistline has grown during his rule over North Korea apparently because of his love for cheese. Aside from gaining 90 pounds in four years, he also is rumored to be a heavy smoker, which doesn’t bode well for his health,” reports the International Business Times.

“At the current stage, it is premature to talk about the state of Kim’s health,” Jeong Joon-hee, South Korea’s unification ministry spokesman, told a regular press briefing.

“There is a need to closely watch related information,” reports The Korea Herald. It is speculated however that his ankle problems occur from obesity.

He underwent a procedure to remove a cyst from his left ankle in 2014 and extra weight may be preventing the condition from healing properly.

Last year, the Chinese government blocked web searches for Kim Fatty the Third after North Korean government representatives made an official complaint.
