Kim Jong Un orders remodeling of major hotels in Pyongyang

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un recently ordered sections of several hotels in Pyongyang to be remodeled by the end of 2021, Daily NK has learned. 

Specifically, Kim ordered that hotels for foreign visitors be rebuilt in a modern way to conform with world standards. The order seems to suggest that the country is preparing to opening its borders in the “post-coronavirus era” as part of efforts to earn foreign currency. 

A military source told the Daily NK on Sunday that Kim handed down the order to the command of the Seventh General Department, a military engineering unit, on Oct. 5.

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP) — Sei Young Kim shot the best round of the week in the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, closing with a 7-under 63 at Aronimink for a five-shot victory and her first major championship.

Kim had 10 victories, the most of any player on the LPGA Tour without a major. The 27-year-old South Korean changed that Sunday in dominant fashion. She won by five over seven-time major champion Inbee Park, who closed with a 65.

Kim became the ninth first-time champion in the last 10 majors on the LPGA Tour. This was hardly a surprise. She has won at least once on the LPGA Tour every year since 2015 and she came into Aronimink as the No. 7 player in the world.

Kim finished at 14-under 266.

Nasa Hataoka (64) and Carlota Ciganda (65) tied for third at 273.

“Sex and the City” star Kim Cattrall is letting go of her serene retreat in East Hampton, NY. She’s asking $3.25 million for the bayfront home.

The actress purchased the property in 1998 for $420,000, so her investment has shown some serious appreciation.

“Kim has owned it for a while, and it is time for her to turn the page and simplify a bit,” says listing agent Rebekah Baker, with Sotheby’s International Realty East Hampton Brokerage. “She has her mom out West, and I think she wants to be closer to her.”

Baker adds that Cattrall’s touches are visible throughout. “She did everything to this property. It is perfectly curated by her with beautiful gardens with tall grasses and bluestone walkways leading up to a home that has dimension and nooks to relax in, and yet it is open to the impressive water views. Decks at the back to
