The Winter Olympics are just three weeks away (they’re taking place in South Korea) and North Korea will be involved!
In the opening or closing ceremony, watch for this state-sponsored North Korean celebrity: pop star Hyon Song Wol, of the girl group Moranbong Band.
South Korea’s Ministry of Unification also says North Korea is sending a “140-member orchestra.”
(This really got me thinking... because North Korea is so cut off from the rest of the world, who are their celebrities? Besides Dennis Rodman.)
Fun fact: In 2015, the Slovenian band Laibach were the first-ever Western rock group to perform in North Korea.
