Kim Jong-un’s hairdresser who had reportedly gone missing days after he had cut the leader’s hair has now been found dead in his apartment, reports the Seoul Post this morning.
Pak Yong-Nam, 26, was found dead this week in his apartment after “stabbing himself 74 times and poisoning himself with cyanide” have confirmed Pyongyang authorities.
If the death of the hairdresser was reported as a suicide by Pyongyang authorities, the news was received with skepticism by international media outlets.
“Insider information leads us to believe Pyongyang authorities uncovered a plot by the Americans to make Kim Jong-un’s hair look ridiculous and which implicated Pak Yong-Nam,” said investigative reporter Lee Dae-Jung.
“It appears Kim Jong-un did not appreciate having the world laugh at his expense and made his hairdresser pay dearly” admits journalist Lee Dae-Jung of the Seoul Post.
Experts believe that Kim Jong-un is the prime suspect behind the murder of his hairdresser, who gave him the famous haircut that has made him the “laughing stock of the world.”
“Some reports from within North Korea claim that he believed his hairdresser had ties to the CIA who ordered the haircut to shame him publicly in front of the world as an attempt to destabilize the regime,” admits the expert in North Korean politics.
Rumors of a secret homosexual relationship of the North Korean leader with his hairdresser could also explain the mysterious death have also claimed some media outlets.
This would not be the first time Kim Jong-un coldly executes alleged traitors of the regime as his uncle was fed to dogs after a disagreement and his sister allegedly died accidentally while falling asleep with her head in a microwave last February.
