The interior has so much potential to be stunning.

I wish there were some interior photos of the tower itself, and not just the lobby.

The unfinished interior looks great. It will turn out nicely. I wonder how glitzy they will make it.

Thanks, but you're the third person to post those photos here. They were larger the first two times too.

Love it!
The fact we can hardly can get any facts just adds to the whole mystery of this structure. Now and then we get a peek but not enough info to draw any conclusions...

One of the coolest structures, based on its appearance.

This building is a pure masterpiece and is the greatest thing to have ever come out of North Korea. I think NK should be more proud of this achievement and they should release more photos of it.

Agree it is the best thing to come out of NoKo - but what are you comparing it to?

NK's probably are very proud of this building, any increase to their self esteem from the completion of this is only a good thing. But then, they aren't allowed to know what is outside their country so maybe they'd be less proud if they saw Dubai, NYC, Hong Kong?

They should not feel too proud until the building is habitable.

And when it is complete, I think they should feel very proud as it beat their brother's tallest (so far, until the Lotto tower catch up).

I should have said 'out of Korea itself'
I would say 'in the world' but then i'd get flamed for it.
