North Korea has been left begging for extra cash from Chinese backers after its missile test sight turned beach resort has been delayed again. 

Kim Jong-Un had originally ordered the site, near the city of Wonson, to be finished by April this year but the project deadline had to be pushed back to October 10th.

Now the deadline has been extended again by the supreme leader who has told his workers not to proceed 'in a hurried way' but to 'postpone the construction' until April 15, 2020.

The dictator has blamed 'hostile forces' and 'vicious sanctions', and promising to 'astonish the world' come the new deadline date. 

Now the hermit kingdom is seeking Chinese backers 'to invest in hotels, tourist attractions, and infrastructure.'

Kim Chun Hui, a director in the regime's National Tourism Administration, specifically named the Wonsan resort in an interview with Chinese media. 

In the article she admitted that 'there are many areas in the North Korean tourism industry that need improvement, such as poor infrastructure.'

Adding: 'the North Korean government welcomes Chinese entrepreneurs and will provide various preferential measures for investment companies.' 

Despite the delays, the regime boasted in a recent propaganda broadcast that work at the resort was proceeding without a hitch. 

Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un has reportedly asked for workers not to be 'hurried' in their approach to their task
