DPRK leader Kim Jong Un recently visited the nearly-completed construction site of a new tourist site, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Friday, declaring the project to represent "leaping progress" in the country's architecture.
In a visit which marks Kim's fifth to the site -- set to begin operations in December -- the North Korean leader notably contrasted the project with the Mt. Kumgang resort, which he was reported to have visited on Wednesday.
