North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly came out of hiding early this month to make a secret visit to a military unit near the rogue state's border with the South.

The South Korean news agency Yonhap reported Tuesday that Kim – who dropped out of the public eye from late July to mid-August – inspected troops near South Korea's outpost in Yeoncheon, which is close to the 2.5-mile-wide demilitarized zone that divides the warring countries.

The state-run Korean Central News Agency said during the inspection, army generals briefed Kim on a planned and ready missile attack on Guam, the U.K-based Express reported.

KCNA said Kim decided to "watch such stupid American behavior for a bit longer" rather than launch the attack, Express reported.

Meanwhile, both Seoul and Washington have ramped up their own military readiness and surveillance against potential provocations by Pyongyang since learning of the inspection, Express reported.
