North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s brutal regime is reportedly forcing local residents and workers to help finish his “five-star beach resort” before the conclusion of the Olympic games; ordering average citizens to provide wood and labor as the despot’s deadline looms.
The Hermit Kingdom is launching an all-out public relations offensive as the world turns its eyes to the Korean peninsula ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, building new facades, hotels, and tourist attractions in an attempt to lure foreign tourists.
According to the Daily NK, Kim’s regime has mobilized 120,000 soldiers and over 20,000 residents to help finish his highly-publicized “world level beach resort.”
“The authorities are now issuing orders for Wonsan area residents to provide construction materials for the mobilized workers before March,” said one source. “All households in the area must also contribute things like winter clothing and rice, which is resulting in endless complaints from the residents.”
“These are not just vanity projects, but they reflect his desire to look modern and upscale and counter the existing narrative,” a senior Korean expert told Fox News. “The Olympic outreach was a zero cost effort for them in terms of getting international attention for the facilities that they built for this occasion.”
