Will South and North Korea enter the stadium together?

South and North Korea are still discussing if their athletes will enter the stadium at the opening ceremony together.

“We are all trying our best to make it true,” said Lee Yun-taek, president of the South Korean Olympic Committee, during the flag-raising ceremony of South Korean delegation in the Beijing Olympic Village.

The IOC is also working to make it happen.

“The International Olympic Committee (IOC) are also working on to solve this problem,” said Kim Jung-hyung, chef de mission of the South Korean delegation. “The South Korea and DPR Korea went to the opening ceremony of Olympic Games twice in 2000 and 2004. I hope it will happen again in Beijing.”

“All our athletes are now training hard to get a good result in the Beijing Olympics. They now have adjusted themselves in their best form and we believe they will show their best.”
