The so-called North Korea unicorns lair discovery has been recently reconfirmed by Korean archeologists, based on the report by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Thursday, November 29, 2012. King Tongmyong (B.C. 277-A.D. 668) rode the unicorn, based on Korea’s history books.

According to a report at KNCA.co.jp that day, History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences director Jo Hui Sung told them that “the lair is located 200 meters from the Yongmyong Temple in Moran Hill in Pyongyang City.” King Tongmyong is noted to be the founder of the Koguryo Kingdom.
As noted in the report, a rectangular rock carved with words “Unicorn Lair” stands in front of the lair, which have been carved back to the period of Koryo Kingdom (918-1392). The discovery of the said unicorn lair is being linked with the proof that Pyongyang was a capital city of Ancient Korea as well as Koguryo Kingdom.
“Ulmil Pavilion is on the top of Mt. Kumsu, with Yongmyong Temple, one of Pyongyang‘s eight scenic spots, beneath it. The temple served as a relief palace for King Tongmyong, in which there is the lair of his unicorn.” KNCA noted, quoting the Sogyong (Pyongyang) chapter of the old book ‘Koryo History‘ (geographical book).
“The old book ‘Sinjungdonggukyojisungnam’ (Revised Handbook of Korean Geography) complied in the 16th century wrote that there is a lair west of Pubyok Pavilion in Mt. Kumsu.” The report added.
