  • 又是一個很洗腦的景點。廣場很大很乾淨。當時只有我們這一團二十多個人佔據整個大廣場。面對大同江,微風徐徐的吹著,很舒服! 
  • Here, in his Majesty, surrounded by large buildings and the Tower of ideology. Here they hold great saves.

  • On my morning walk to Kim Il-Sung. This is where come out well on TV, such as military parades. Countless markers to determine the position on the ground there. It is when people lining up to sign. On the opposite bank to the Juche Tower.

  • I thought this was just a normal square to worship the great leader but boy was I wrong! After the great one himself cured all our diseases he preceded to anally violate all of the children on our school trip in the name of the Great Republic! Then he flew away on a rainbow made of labour tears and all the food needed to feed our country. So enlightening. just wish I wasn't in work camp now
  • The best place I've even been! I had so much fun worshiping the supreme leader! The air only tasted like iPhone 3's a LITTLE bit.
  • Its north korea its the dumping ground of all things crappy
  • Best place I have ever been, u just need to say "long live Kim Jong un" and cry, the friendly solider will give u 5 cent. I stay there for a week and become a millionaire, guess that's why North Koreans are rich.
  • It's not as trendy as the newer Kim Jong-il Round, but still kind of a cool place to hang.
