210 NINJADOG The Mighty Ducks 4: One Korea is Best Korea
2936 youngjabberwocker As a Korean, this is always heartening to see. Our division was mostly created by foreign powers a while back, and there are a number of North Korean athletes who are quite popular in South Korea (Jong Tae-Se being one of them). Given, he might not be a good example as he's one of the worst North Koreans in that he lives in South Korea, married a South Korean woman, and I believe his daughter is also South Korean. We tried to do a unified football team during the 2002 World Cup, but that didn't through. All things take little steps though, and I'm happy to see this going through. [Here's to hoping this happens again!](https://youtu.be/Wyl8cCCrgKs?t=25)
