Well I read a few things on Wikipedia while back and it said that there are rumors that he has been dead for a while sounds like a bunch of bull. It's Wikipedia tho so what do u expect but I read that he is going to make Kim Jung un his successor and he's a chip off the old block.

I'm worried what Jong Il maybe realizing that he's dying and he will cause trouble for people over there.
