>> The world woke up to news of North Korea's missile failure Sunday, an embarrassing setback the morning after a grand parade of military weapons but what's it like in the north after headlines like this? Reuters reporter Sue-Lin Wong is in Pyongyang after the launch being led through cheery but calm official tours.
>> Today, international headlines have been dominated by North Korea's latest failed missile launch. And here on the Grand in Pyongyang we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to ask what the reaction is from local North Koreans.>> Government minders barred Reuters from asking these waterpark goers any questions.
But for citizens outside, mention of the failure was met with disbelief.>> If the news is true, failure is the mother of success. We will make more efforts to make even more powerful weapons in the future.>> Others reacted with outright denial that the test had ended in a misfire.
>> This is a lie. Our military scientists are demonstrating the power of our national forces. Scientists like me, don't believe that.>> There's been no official acknowledgement of the missile launch from Pyongyang. The regime rarely advertises its failures.
