I reckon most people were pretty happy when we saw that Kim Jong-Un was alive and well following rumours of his death as he appeared at the opening of a fertiliser factory in North Korea.

However, of course there were those people that weren’t convinced that who we were seeing was actually Kim and that this was in fact a body double. And in fairness to them, they had a bunch of comparison pics of the two of them to try and prove it.
Here are a bunch of the ‘best’ reasons that it wasn’t Kim Jong-Un opening that fertiliser factory and that he’s actually dead. See which one you think is the most likely to be real:
The chipped incisor is a definite giveaway it’s not Kim Jong Un.
So why a body double? If he’s dead why not just announce it and crown his successor? https://t.co/AVUz7Kl9CS

His nose seems a little bit more rounded, his hairline looks wider, and he used to have WAY more wrinkles around the eyes when he smiled. The hairline may just be receding or a fresh new haircut, but the smoother eyes and slightly different nose have me questioning things

Yep. Body double just recovering from plastic surgery to look like Kim Jong Un.

Just remember there are atleast 10 body #KimJongUn doubles apparently.
Being Kim Jong Un body double is the the most Honorable and best paid job in North Korea. https://t.co/LYAHWPJhoH

Look at these two images and note the teeth! The first one is Kim Jong Un a few weeks ago (the real one?), the second is KJU today as shown by RT. Note the gap in the teeth of the second image. A body double? pic.twitter.com/822ujeEOUZ

Was the “Kim Jong Un” who cut the ribbon at that fertilizer plant a body double or nah? https://t.co/QZvX2v5p08

I mean you kinda gotta look at that and say that maybe there’s something in it? Maybe?
Ultimately though I suppose it doesn’t really matter if it’s the real Kim Jong-Un or an imposter/body double because whatever is going on North Korea is still going to be completely weird and at odds with the rest of the world. Guess delving into conspiracy theories gives us something to do for a few minutes at the moment though doesn’t it?
For more of the same, check out who’s next in line for the throne if Kim Jong-Un really is dead. That’s a scary thought.
