Lovely hack!!
There appear to be a couple more aircraft at the end of the white taxiway, in front of a cave entrance. It seems unlikely that it will be a large hangar but it could be a repair/servicing facility. No other hangars are apparent - but they may be in the poor resolution side of the airfield image.
There are 4 QRA (Quick Reaction Alert) Protective Aircraft Shelters near the runway end - and a number of primitive revetments scattered alongside the SE taxi track.
At Taechon Airfield to the NW most of the training aircraft are in the revetments.

The aircraft at Taechon AB are AN-2 for airtransport. I have upload a file with paratroopers in action to the south of the AB.

Unfortunately, those aren't FLOGGER but MiG-teens. FLOGGER have pointed noses, while these are blunt.
