Kim Jong Un oversees opening of Yangdok Hot Springs and ski resort

Resort built starting last spring is an achievement made under “worst adversity” from enemies, top official says

North Korea held an opening ceremony on Saturday for one of the country’s top priority construction projects in the Yangdok Hot Spring Cultural Recreation Center, state media announced Sunday.

With leader Kim Jong Un in attendance, the resort’s construction was hailed as a victory over difficulties brought by the country’s “enemies” and a significant achievement in speedy construction completed in “less than a year.”
