North Korea is opened a massive ski resort on Thursday after constructing it for almost a year now. Ironically, this money was spent while the country leaves many citizens impoverished and starving. Kim Jong Un has said it's a sign of the people's love for the Great Leader although there are reportedly only 5,500 North Korean skiers in the country of 24 million. Kim reportedly had enjoyed skiing in Switzerland as a teenager.
