The death of Kim Jong-eun means the death of the North Korean dynastic system?

According to North Korean media, the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is suffering from “discomfort”, state media has said in the first official acknowledgement of ill health after a prolonged period out of the public eye.

According to North Korean sources, an unexpected death of Kim Jong-eun won’t lead to the collapse of the system as other members of the Kims family are trained to replace Kim Jong-eun in case of emergency. That does apply especially to brothers and sisters of Kim Jong-eun. I’m thinking here especially to Kim Yo-jong, Kim Sol-song and Kim Jong-chol.
