North Korea's Hwang is Missing?? So???
 
The continued absence of one of North Korea’s top officials, General Hwang Pyong So, from leader Kim Jong Un's side continues to fuel speculation that he has fallen from favor and may have been executed.

Director of the hugely influential General Political Bureau of the North Korean military—the body that is tasked with ensuring ideological commitment within the ranks of the army—Hwang has reportedly been expelled from the Workers’ Party, where he previously served in a senior position in the politburo.

An unidentified South Korean source told South Korea publication Korea JoongAng Daily that Hwang was purged from the party for taking bribes. The source did not specify when the expulsion took place.

The reports about Hwang first emerged after the South Korean intelligence agency briefed Seoul lawmakers on the situation in North Korea in November, a week after a North Korean soldier staged a daring defection across the demilitarized border area.

Seoul's spy agency said Hwang and his deputy were punished for their “impure” attitude, but a lawmaker who attended the briefing told local media he could not add details about the punishment because it was classified information.

Hwang’s position within the regime effectively made him second only to Kim, the result of a power struggle with the ruling party secretary, Choe Ryong Hae, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported in 2015.

Choe, whose son is reportedly married to Kim’s younger sister, used to lead the military bureau and became the most senior North Korean regime official to visit South Korea when he led Pyongyang’s delegation to the Asian Games in October in 2014. Choe was replaced by Hwang later that year and sent to work on a farm in 2015 as a punishment for mishandling a power station construction project. He only reappeared in public a month later.

Since they don't have any food in NK, it's not like he's late for dinner.

I can't tell if this is even real. The source is a South Korean news agency, an obviously biased source when it comes to NK. It wouldn't be the first time SK media had lied about the situation in NK (like Kim's wife being executed, a cabinet member being executed by mortar fire or wild dogs depending on which story you read). The other problem with discerning the truth is that NK is actually messed up enough to see the headline and immediately think it's feasible.

Last time it was all false, this time is likely the same. I bet it's propaganda.
