Kim Jong-un was last seen on May 6, during a photo shoot with the families of the North Korean military.
"This is the longest period of absence of public activity [of the leader of the DPRK] this year," - said the representative of the South Korean ministry.
Lee Jong-ju did not want to comment on this situation or express Seoul's position on the "disappearance" of Kim Jong-un.
It is not the first time that the long absence of the North Korean leader in public has raised concerns. So, in the spring of 2020, another disappearance became the reason for many rumors about the state of his health. Then Kim Jong-un disappeared from the media on April 11, and his new photos were published 20 days later. During this time, the politician missed several important events, including the birthday of the "leader of the nation" Kim Il Sung, the main holiday in the country. Some media outlets reported that Kim Jong-un was seriously ill or even dead.
