I rather hear from Norks, not from you if what you are saying it true.
I think you are full of it. Let them speak here.

Stop the NK propaganda bullshit! None of you has any idea about what's going on there so you might as well save us some time reading your useless rubbish posts. This is a skyscraper forum not a political one.
@China Hand - do you have any evidence to back up your clueless post? Your statement brings exactly nothing to the discussion while bashing NK at the same time. Korsakov only stated the fact about WHO while you just bashed him. You are just a troll.

Excellent point.

Can we hear from some North Korean people? How do you guys feel about this tower?

How does it compare to other North Korean buildings? Are you looking forward to staying in it? Perhaps you could post some pics. Tell us who you are: do you have a website? Maybe we can get in touch...

All my North Korean friends are very excited about this tower.

Wow, that's great. Perhaps they could tell us in their own words.

They must, surely. Great healthcare, applauded buildings, how can they not be free to communicate it to us?

I like the reflection of the center in the two sides of the cladding. Makes it look like three.

The DPRK does not want internet connections to the outside telling us about this tower, not because they don't want to show us, but to keep our influence out. I kind of agree.

As far as I'm concerned, it's just as monstrously hideous finished as it was when it was unfinished. (If you look on the Ugly Skyscraper Poll, you'll see that many others agree with me; it's definitely a contender.) But by all means, let's hear what the North Koreans think!

North Korea is an enormous wealth of raw materials. They will have their boom time. IMO they will go the path of rich Arab oil nations.

People should stop making fun of North Korea and stop listening only to western anti North Korean propaganda. Its a society that choose to go a different path. We have to respect that.

Yeah, although the buildings are next to no more than 110 meters, looks great in the middle of the city.

In this photo ... building work ahead of the Health Complex and the People's Outdoor Ice Rink (will be the second ice rink in Pyongyang)... behind the Ryugyong Hotel that is possible see to from many parts of the city.

Is there any news about the interior of this hotel? It would be very good if they'll make it in same retro-futurism style as the building itself.
