North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un announced his regime’s plan to construct a “world level” beach resort along the country’s coastline Thursday, attempting to lure tourists and travelers to the hermit kingdom.
One minor problem: The hotel is to be built on top of Kim’s nuclear testing facility.
The reclusive regime announced their plans to construct a “five-star” hotel -boasting a ‘famous sandy beach’ and shoreline- as the nation prepares to send its 250-person delegation into South Korea ahead of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
The resort is to be built in the country’s coastal Kangwon province, the same region Kim conducts his massive, underground nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches.
“When the tourist area is built, it will satisfy the demand of domestic and foreign tourists and will be the most ideal place to link various tourist destinations to the Wonsan-Mt Kumgang international tourist zone,” said a statement from the state-run news agency.
Kim’s move to lure tourists to the Hermit Kingdom comes as tensions between North and South Korea continue to thaw. Last week, officials from both nations announced that athletes from the two countries would march under a unified Korean flag during the Olympic Games’ opening ceremony.
