Hiddink to do a Dennis Rodman

Postby Holyjoe » Fri Jan 31, 2014 10:02 pm

Looks like old Guus fancies a bit of the fast cars, bitches and cognac action that Kim Jong-un keeps showering Dennis Rodman with:

Guus Hiddink to Visit N.Korea
27/01/14

Guus Hiddink, the former manager of the South Korean national football team, may visit North Korea.

A Unification Ministry official on Friday said Hiddink last month said he would like to see North Korea and asked about the procedure if he was to cross the land border. He has not yet made an official application.

The goal of Hiddink's visit is to promote sports exchanges with North Korea including building a futsal field and holding futsal matches in the North.

Hiddink has built several futsal fields in South Korea through the Guus Hiddink Foundation.

Since he is not a South Korean citizen, he does not need authorization from the South Korean government to visit North Korea through China, but approval by the South Korean government is required if he intends to cross the border from South Korea.

The ministry official said Hiddink did not offer a detailed schedule. "The government's policy is to allow social and cultural exchanges with North Korea, so once we receive the application, we'll review and approve it," the official added.

What?!?

Is the old Korean guy not actually Korean? Did someone rescind his citizenship? Do honorary citizenships count for nothing in the Republic of Korea? Well you can count me out then. Hrmph.

I wonder how the Norks will present him? They surely wouldn't want to highlight his success in 2002 with the enemy?

Incidentally - "to do a Rodman" - I think you may have coined a phrase there!

I hope Hiddink doesn't do this... sounds like someone can't handle his soju:

Rodman drunk, vomited, defecated all over Koryo Hotel in NK
09/02/14

Dennis Rodman checking himself into an alcohol rehabilitation center upon returning from a trip to North Korea was the first news all over the U.S. media, but at that time, he confirmed only to the fact that he is an addict and has never recovered from the habit.

But according to a report cited by Free North Korea Radio, he was practically forced out of the hermit kingdom for his full-blown drunk and disorderly behavior.

“Rodman was drunk the whole week of his stay. And the night before he left for the U.S., he was drunk unconscious, and vomited everywhere he turned. He even urinated and emptied the bowels in the hallway,” said the source.

Workers and managers of the Koryo Hotel who witnessed the scene and had to clean the mess were reportedly at a loss for words at such barbaric and uncivilized behavior.

North Korean authorities were told of the incident and tried to contain the story from spreading like a wild fire.

The obvious reason being shame: that taints the reputation of their Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un’s ability and discretion to screen people.

“The stench was just horrible and people are criticizing not only Rodman, but also Kim Jong-un saying that ‘No one in a right mind would be a friend with Rodman. An animal that he is,’” the source said.

Rodman was reportedly asked out of the country with a warning “Never will you be welcome here without the completion of your alcohol abuse treatment program,” the source said.

Not a huge surprise though, is it judging by the video of his rant.

There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

The event is the brainchild of Japanese lawmaker Kanji "Antonio" Inoki, himself a former pro wrestler, and comes amid a slight thawing of relations between Japan and North Korea. Tokyo recently eased some unilateral sanctions on the North to allow more exchanges, but continues to enforce UN sanctions over its nuclear and missile programs.

Which does make me think: how often do you see Japanese writing in South Korea (away from locations such as airports)? I have seen it in China (e.g. Japanese shops) but can't remember anything in Korea.

UNIQLO has sold t-shirts with Japanese on them. No idea how many they sell, but that could be one source. I wonder if a Hello Kitty store here carries anything in Japanese ... assuming they sell anything after the revelation that Hello Kitty is a schoolgirl and not actually a cat.
