If I remember correctly, the modern towers were made for some certain celebration days, right ?

Let's just say that North Korea cares about how they appear to the world. They don't want to look poor and impoverished, that would harm their tourism, which is the only solution to fill this hotel/building/whatever this is.

Yeah, just like what Dubai and China are doing.

The photos are nice but the Ryugyong needs to be lit up to give the full effect.

No need to be ashamed in liking this design and building!
It's not finished at the moment but the german luxury hotel group Kempinski should move in next year.

Lol, I am not ashamed of the design, I like it and it's pretty unique. So, it is primarily more of a hotel? any office inside? This building need some love tho. Lol

It also has some ads, so your supporting the DPRK while watching that. I watched liked 50 videos from that channel so now they will be able to complete the Ryugyong Hotel.

Their airline Air Koryo also has a facebook page. It's also very active, they'd also reply to you if you have any questions.

Shouldn't be long. If they had such a massive celebration for the Mansudae Towers, the opening ceremony for this one should be mindblowing.
