North Korea's absolute ruler, Kim Jong Un has not been seen publicly for more than a month. Rumors and speculations have been flying on what may have happened to him and what the situation is within the inner circle of power within the reclusive nation.
Of course, nothing can be confirmed, and the main speculation is that he may be sick or indisposed
. So while the leader is unable to discharge his duties, who do we think is running things in the 'hermit kingdom' ?
The North Korea Intellectuals Solidarity ,which is a think tank ran by North Korean defectors, thinks that Kim Jong Un's younger sister Kim Yo Jong
is temporarily in charge. The group has not released the source of their information, but if this is true, it means the entire Korean peninsula is being run by a female in more than a thousand years. The current President of South Korea, Park Geun-Hye, is also the daughter of the nation's longest serving President, Park Chung-hee. The Parks may be considered the rival political family of the Kims of the North. Ironically, North Korea made fun of the South for having a female President when Park Geun-Hye was elected to office.
All of this sounds like the premise for a great television series, maybe Hollywood should get on it?
Like many others of the Kim dynasty, little is known about the past of Kim Yo Jong. Reports have it that she attended boarding school in Switzerland with big brother Kim Jong Un under assumed names.
