Kim Jong Un may be alive but may be trying to desperately avoid the Coronavirus: Report

Seoul, South Korea -- New developments within the Koreas today as it has emerged that South Korea now believes that Kim Jong Un is indeed alive. According to the South Korean government, they believe that Kim Jong Un missed the nation 's April 15th holiday out of governmental fears of the Coronavirus.

Korea has an 'exceptional' number of hackers at their disposal, some of which has that number at nearly 6,000. (both dedicated to disrupting teh South and the United States). In case that couldn't get any worse, it does. Korea warned that the North has  'advanced' their missile technology, which in turn allowed them to place warheads on such missiles.

So, Nut Rage, is really a thing

Like, really.  Apparently one Korean Air heiress wanted her nuts so bad on a plate, she went nuts when they were delivered in a bag. According to the Huffington Post, one Korean heiress found out the hard-way that when an airline stewardess serves you your nuts, that's how you're going to get said nuts. Apparently, Cho Hyun-ah, the daughter of the airline's chairman ordered a round of macadamia nuts but didn't get them the way she desired: On a plate. As funny as this is, we just can't make something like this up. Prosecutors approved an arrest warrant for Hyun-Ah Tuesdaywhere,  she spent most of the day in a South Korean detention facility. Suppose that's what happens when one goes, nuts.

Report: N. Korean delegation to Olympics includes secret spies

SEOUL -- North Korea is desperately (and apparently) trying very hard to keep its people from defecting to the South.  According to CNN,    North Korea has "forced spies to attend as "fake support staff"   to monitor and put each of the members under constant surveillance" to prevent defection. Over the past 50 years or so, CNN, managed to discover that some 60,000 people have fled to the South. Now,   the secret spies deeply embedded within the Olympian staff --  are "constantly watching people in their rooms, and, even when they use the bathroom'. The claims come from a North Korean spy who defected to the South, and,   apparently once served on the delegation himself.  Read the full story here.

People think the new bodyguard of South Korea ‘s president is insanely hot

No, literally.  Most of the weekend, Twitter, gave us every reason to chuckle as usual.  Over the weekend, S.K, officially inaugurated its next president after the fall of the woman responsible for that previous administration and its corruption that we won't actually name. Now, Moon Jae-In has taken over and his bodyguard is actually the one catching all the attention.  Buzzfeed hilariously decided to dig deep and identify the poor guy, who, is apparently a 36-year-old father of two in South Korea. The man, uh, has been named as Choi Young-Jae, the new bodyguard in question [Via The New York Post].
