Seoul: Unification Minister Kim Yeon-chul has dismissed unreported reports of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's "fake news" and "insensitivity", insisting he can speak confidently. There are no bad marks in this communist state.

Estimates of Kim's health have increased following his annual visit to his grandfather's cemetery, Kim Il Sung, on the anniversary of the founding of the nation, North Korea's most important national holiday.

Since then, media reports have speculated that Kim may have been seriously ill, but Seoul officials objected to the report, repeatedly saying no unusual signs were found in Korea. No, Kim is believed to be staying in the country's east coast city.
