Have you not yet escaped the propaganda, and realized that no democracy is actually "free"? It's North Korea everywhere, the only difference is just that its faces are different. You should look into Edward Bernays work before following the same North Korean style American mindset.

This building will never be finished. At least not in the next 20 to 30 years.

We don't know if there is or isn't construction going on. But as far as we know, there was no announcement that work stopped, only that Kempinski won't run the hotel itself. Maybe they are fitting out some rooms anyway. If they could afford a ski resort, then they shouldn't have a problem completing parts of this building. They might be working on fitting out the rotating floors and use it as a temporary observation tower until they decide to work more on the rooms, for all we know.

I think all the constructors are so shit scared of making a mistake of which that little fat ****** who runs the country will disapprove of ,and have their entire family shot, that they're not making any progress.

What they need just a word from the fat boy.

U see those residential built in 2 years time? Kim Jong Un just said "finish it or your family finished" and kaboommmm the building is ready within 2 years.

Maybe for ryugyong hotel, they need kim jong un to say "finish it" and we will see the opening date of the hotel this month

What's stopping him from saying that then? You'd think instead of the ski resort, university towers, bank complex, Mansudae res. towers, hospital, and port, which they finished in the last few years, this would be their top priority to finish.

Unless threats are not how things are done in NK.

probably he felt that this hotel is not a priority for him as there are a few good hotels in nk. So i think he would have prioritized other things first and things that NK dont have yet, and that mansudae res towers i think it was built for his ministers/relatives not for common folks.

NK originally started this building as a Cold War response to a building SK built, to show superiority. Wouldn't it be a major victory in pride if this building would be finished? Especially after all the ridicule in the western media about it being incomplete.

That's amazing with holidays and rostered days off. Big workforce run like a Swiss watch...no work in cold or hot weather... a credit to North Korea...and great pay as well...
