Kim Jong Un sees some success

Third-generation North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, has come into his own with a successful rocket launch and measures to shape North Korea's media. Watch.WATCH

Seoul - The seemingly pregnant belly sported by the wife of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in mid-December appeared to be gone by New Year's Day.

That's sent South Korean media into a frenzy of speculation that there's a new baby in the ruling Kim dynasty.

Video broadcast 17 December showed Ri Sol Ju wearing a billowing black dress that covered what appeared to be a swollen belly.

Rumours swept Seoul and Pyongyang that she was pregnant, although it was difficult to tell for sure from the images. There has been no official word from Pyongyang.
