why would they announce he is alive if they are going to say he is actually dead a few days/weeks/months/w/e later?


Illusion of invincibility.

Glorious leader doesn't get sick. Glorious leader can't get sick. That would be weakness, and the glorious leader isn't weak. If he dies he dies; they can't cover that up. But sickness? No problem.

I mean, I did not believe Kim Jong-un was dead. While I am a bit skeptical he is completely healthy, and he may have been seriously ill for the past couple of weeks, I am confident Kim Jong-un is still alive.

So mate, you're moving the goalposts.


No, I'm not. I never believed he was dead either. I believed he was incapacitated. Which he may very well still be, even if he is up and walking about - though I'm skeptical that he really is. That video could be using unused footage from something else spliced together, or in spite of his appearance he could very well be on death's door anyway. We don't know either way.

Honestly I don't really see why they'd do any of that given that the DPRK literally has a cult of the dead revolving around the Kim family. Kim Il Sung is still the president of the nation after all. If the current leader dies he just gets promoted to venerable ancestor status and keeps on guiding the next one from the afterlife.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane.

Quite a few of her artistic depictions are rather unfortunate or unoriginal indeed. Some are very good though.

That being said, isn't it quite remarkable that, unlike other persons, she causes such strong emotions, quite literally inducing dark fantasies and obsessions of dread, death, destruction and total submissiveness even amongst those whomst one wouldn usually not supect of habouring those?

It is indeed. Brings to mind that quote from LOTR.
In place of the Dark Lord, you would have a Queen, not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Dawn. Treacherous as the Sea! Stronger than the foundations of the earth...all shall love me and despair!

Honestly I do not think she looks that exceptional. Not bad physically but I mean there are plenty of others that look just as good.

I mean I would think a complete package would include “not being a total narcissistic sociopath”.

They reason people are drawn to her is not because of her physical beauty or intelligence because if she was say just a mid level manager at a South Korea business people would not be obsessing over her.

You never get to see her in the clothing she wears, it is very conservative, and drab. I think she has a beautiful face, great skin, she can run in heels. And you know what they say about crazy, the crazier they are the better the lay.

Again plenty of other women have (probably artificially) paper white skin, high cheekbones and can run in heels.
If those are your things fine, but that is not the reason because again others have those.

It is the crazy that draws people.
