In a report about the absence of Kim Jong-un, the current supreme leader of North Korea in public life, the daily said the 31-year-old leader who is a successor of the previous lifetime leaders of the country, likes to project himself like his grandfather 'Kim 2 Sung' and hence focussed on physical weight to make himself look more authoritative. The daily said Kim Jong-un, who succeeded his father and late supreme leader Kim Jong-il in 2011, is fond of cheese and that could have led to a overweight problem for him.

Neighbouring South Korea is also keeping a close watch on the developments across the border over the mysterious absence of Kim Jong-un.
