Гостиница "Рюгён" стала теперь непременно символом тоталитаризма, наверное, не последнюю роль в этом сыграло утверждение немецкой компании недвижимости Emporis. Та заявила, что гостиницу уже не получится использовать – в частности, из-за низкого качества бетона, делающего эксплуатацию здания небезопасной. Хотя здание и стало самым высоким в Северной Корее, после такого сообщения довольно сомнительно, что появится хоть кто-то, решившийся поучаствовать в его достройке. Разве что сами корейцы вдруг найдут у себя для этого какие-то силы и ресурсы.
