N. Korea operating Hyundai-built accommodations at Mt. Kumgang

Company confirms it wasn't aware that DPRK had renamed facility

Photos published on a North Korean travel agency's website suggest that the country has begun operating accommodations originally established by a South Korean company at the Mount Kumgang resort.

Hyundai Asan  – which ran the resort from 1999 until 2008 –  confirmed to NK News on Monday that the photos feature its properties and that North Korea has apparently renamed the facilities.
