Missile testing site in North Korea still doubles as a beachside resort [SEE HERE]



North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's government has been building the coastal city of Wonsan into a beachside resort town, according to a report from Reuters.
Wonsan occupies a special place in North Korean politics, acting as both a luxury getaway for elites and a testing ground for missile, artillery, and other military tests.
But Kim has an ambitious vision for the city — he hopes to redevelop it into a tourist destination that will generate billions of dollars, and hopes to do so by attracting foreign corporate investment.



Wonsan is a city along North Korea's east coast where North Korean officials announced they would be undertaking a massive redevelopment program in 2014.
