A few things that the media were quick to notice in the photos of reappearance of the President were regarding his appearance. There is o doubt the president had gained weight since taking power in 2011, but considering for someone to go through the ‘grave danger’ and the extensive surgery, Kim Jong Un for one looked quite similar as he used to be with having no physical weight loss or signs of weakness. He was furthering seen sporting a Mao suite and seemed to look fresh in what’s called a fresh cut.
