A photo has gone viral in Korea.

On the 11th, the Cross Country Skiing Men's 15km + 15km Skiathlon took place, including Korean athlete Kim Eun Ho. Kim Eun Ho had lagged behind and was in the race by himself. When North Korean coaches who had come to the race for training saw him, they yelled words of support to the athlete. The moment was caught on camera.

The photo was introduced by tbs' Kim Eo Joon, who said, "Main news portals will turn a blind eye to photos like this that symbolize the Pyeongchang Olympics, and instead focus on photos that increase friction. But a photo like this that shows North Korea supporting a South Korean athlete, will go down history."


Kim Eun Ho was ultimately disqualified from the race, but the moment had still given birth to an amazing photo, bringing back moments of the North Korean and South Korean gymnast taking a selfie together back in August 2016.
