Seoul - Days after this year's "Mass Games" debuted before North Korea's top leadership, the huge pageant has been put on hold after leader Kim Jong Un expressed his dissatisfaction, foreign tour groups said on Wednesday.
Kim and his wife were among the elite at the premiere of the games on Monday in Pyongyang, but North Korea's leader was unhappy with the event's organizers, state media said.
The performances are being paused to allow organizers to fix the unspecified shortcomings, according to two Western companies that take foreign tourists to North Korea.
"The Mass Games may be temporarily halted from June 10th due to Kim Jong Un dissatisfaction with the opening performance," Young Pioneer Tours said on Twitter.
Koryo Tours tweeted that "there will be a pause for some days/weeks while the show is adjusted before being launched again - we wait to see what will change and when it will restart."
