While North Korean citizens toil away in labor camps or starve to death, their dear leader, Kim Jong-un, can be found partying away at his own private seaside resort.

The Sun published aerial photographs that it claims show a resort in North Korea near Wonson where the nation's dictator indulges in the finest champagne, lobster, and French cheese.

Friend of the dictator Dennis Rodman said he has been to the resort, which includes a private airstrip and—of course—a yacht with water slides off the back. It is parked in a private marina with jet skis and motor boats.

"It's like going to Hawaii or Ibiza," Rodman told The Sun. "But he's the only one that lives there. He's got 50 to 60 people around him all the time—just normal people, drinking cocktails and laughing the whole time. If you drink a bottle of tequila, it's the best tequila. Everything you want, he has the best."

The despot's getaway is decorated with expensive antiques and works of art and guarded by North Korean troops. A "fleet" of Mercedes Benz cars and a private railway transport guests around the lush resort. It even has a fairgrounds and a stadium.

Meanwhile, the average North Korean subsists on slightly more than three dollars a day, The Sun noted. Sounds fair.
