After Kim Jong Un’s early May reappearance, luxury boat replaced at Wonsan villa
Moves could be sign of North Korean leader’s return to Wonsan as third large luxury barge enters repair docks
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s exclusive Wonsan villa compound saw continuous activity throughout his April “disappearance,” and, since his May 1 reappearance, new changes indicate he could be there once again, according to NK Pro analysis of recent satellite imagery.
Previous NK Pro analysis detailed Kim’s four large leisure boats — ranging from 50 to 80 meters long with pools and luxury lounge facilities — and a strong correlation between their movements in Wonsan and the DPRK leader’s known presence in the area.
