Joint Korean Winter Olympics

Two nations that have fought for years have decided to work together in this year’s Winter Olympics. A Korean ice hockey official stated his opinion on the subject: “We are utterly speechless that the government just picked us, out of blue, and asked us to play with total strangers at the Olympics.” Most South Koreans are okay with the North Koreans participating in  the Olympics; however, 80% of South Koreans did not agree with the idea of conjoining the two teams. As of January 31, small conservative groups have held rallies where they burn photos of Kim Jong Un and the North Korean flag. Some Officials believe that tensions will flare after the Olympic games are over. Only time will tell on what will happen in this year’s Olympic Games and for the future of North and South Korean relations.
