Thanks. I never saw that before. It seems that China has recently started changing the image at the “Resist America Aid North Korea Cemetery”, in Shenyang, where Chinese PLA remains, returned under Pre. Park, were originally sent. Various NK focused sites, including that cemetery, have been “under renovation” for over a year while they had previously been listed as “great patriotic education centers”. It would have been inconvenient for sure had SK youths on “freedom tours” of China seen them too.
