North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has officially made his first public appearance in 40 days, somewhat ending rumors that his reign has come to an end.   The appearance, posted on the Korean Central News Agency’s website and dated Oct. 14, said that Kim, 31, showed up at a newly built housing development and toured the grounds.

Kim hadn’t been seen in public since attending a state concert with his wife on Sept. 3, walking with a limp, leading to questions about his health and the country’s future leadership. Kim Jong-Un’s limp lead the way for many speculations stating the he would no longer be able to rule over North Korea.

Furthermore, his extended absence from the public eye lead to even more rumors of his condition. The Obama administration told NBC News it was still trying to determine the report of Kim Jong-UN condition. “The reports are certainly plausible,” a senior administration official said. “Our assessment throughout this period has been that the government has been and continues to function as normal.”
