Recently, pictures of gymnasts from the two Koreas smiling toothily together became a hot topic in the media. 


The pictures show North Korea's 27-year-old Hong Un-jong and 17-year-old Lee Eun-ju during their practice for the Olympics, posing happily together with bright grins on their faces, taking selfies, glad-handing, and just creating a feel-good atmosphere with their positive attitudes. 


It's great to see that the girls got along swell despite their ten-year age gap and more importantly, their starkly contrasting lifestyles.

Lee Eun-ju was selected to participate in the 2016 Summer Olympics after Lee Go-im, who took first place to be the national representative, suffered an arm injury. Hong has won a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.

    It's such a touching photo! They both look so bright! Hope NK wouldn't be angry about this though... I worry for the girl somehow.

    Do you even know what fuck means? Lol you just said that they first family Korea is going to have sex with is that dude's family. Seoul University my ass. If you really were from Seoul university, then you'd know proper English and grammar. You must be a major disappointment to Seoul University.

    You're not going to SNU. If you did you'd know that they have a lesbian Student Body President and an LGBT club. All of which you claimed did not exist at the university. Nor do you live in Korea because you also claimed that homosexuality was a crime (which it isn't..) and that gay bars do not exist in Korea, but they do and I can name several of them that are up and running and have never been shut down by the police.
