Kim Jong-un, North Korea's 32-year-old leader, has been absent from public view for more than 38 days, prompting a flurry of speculation about the political stability of a regime notorious for its opaqueness and secrecy.

Dr John Swenson-Wright, University Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese Politics and International Relations and Head of the Asia Programme at Chatham House, writes about this for BBC News Asia.
