As far as available material shows, geomantic theory has been mentioned in 
several NK publications at least since 2000. Initially, these ideas have been 
presented as opinions of "Koreans living abroad". Besides Paektusan, 
Man'gyeongdae and Mountain Keumsusan (the place of the Great leader's 
mausoleum) are discussed as auspicious geomantic places.
