Wasn't his post way early in the thread, before it even got the cladding? Lol.


It's nice that this building was less and less mentioned in this thread since its beautification, apart from negative posts by the usual suspects

I remember looking at the Ryugyong's thread from posts back when it resumed construction after like 16 years of delay. All the people were like, "What the hell, are you kidding?"

I disagree. Excluding the candy-cane antenna, the building's gorgeous.
