Appearance in the rap battle
This is the location where Kim Jong-il rapped his second verse. He began inside a Hanok room, before the balcony opened up to reveal the WPK Central Committee Building with a launcher vehicle in the back. It appears again during Macho Man Randy Savage's line, "So spend less time rapping and start feeding your people!" with a "MacHoman's", a pun of "Macho Man" and the McDonald's restaurant brand.
