So the total number grieving him is now two: North Korea & Nature. Aren’t personality cults fun? According to sources from North Korea, people in the country have been witnessing all sorts of strange phenomenon since the death of Dear Leader, such as frozen lakes cracking (spooky!) and weird lights on mountaintops.
Ice cracked on a famous lake “so loud, it seemed to shake the Heavens and the Earth”, and a mysterious glow was seen on a revered mountain top, KCNA said. The personality cult surrounding North Korea’s founding father and son bestows near-divine status on them.
Meanwhile, South Korean intelligence has questioned how Mr Kim died. Citing US satellite photos, the country’s national intelligence service director Won Sei-hoon said there was no sign that the special train, on which Mr Kim is reported to have died while on a visit on Saturday, had ever left Pyongyang over the weekend.
A snowstorm hit as Mr Kim died and ice on the volcanic Chon lake near his reported birthplace at Mount Paektu cracked, it said.
Following the storm’s sudden end at dawn on Tuesday, a message carved in rock - “Mount Paektu, holy mountain of revolution. Kim Jong-il” - glowed brightly, it said. It remained there until sunset.
On the same say, a Manchurian crane also apparently adopted a posture of grief at a statue of the late leader’s father in the northern city of Hamhung.
“Even the crane seemed to mourn the demise of Kim Jong-il, born of Heaven, after flying down there at dead of cold night, unable to forget him,” KCNA reported officials as saying.
On Wednesday state media said more than five million people had already turned out to pay their respects to Kim Jong-il.
State media have called on North Koreans to unite behind his designated heir, youngest son Kim Jong-un, who is being called the “Great Successor”.
