Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

Read Event Description

Event Date

May 19th 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Description

In April Kim Jong-un disappeared from public view for three weeks. This is not the first time that Kim Jong-un has disappeared for an extended period of time, but his absence led to rumors about his health and speculation about the fate of North Korea should he pass away. With his reappearance we now know that the most dramatic of the rumors were incorrect, but they highlight the difficulty of gaining accurate information about North Korea on a range of issues. Reliable information about North Korean remains hard to come by.
