Olympic Channel of the International Olypmpic Commission said it was likely that they would make a film about the Korean ice hockey team at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. At the recent press conference, Mr. Mark Parkman, General Manager of the Olympic Channel, said the network is trying to figure out what to tell the story of the “united” hockey team.
They got a lot of talk at the 23rd Winter Olympics. Hockey teams of athletes from the two Koreas completed the tournament at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics after losing to Sweden. South Korea has formed a female hockey team to compete at the 2020 Winter Olympics. Pyongyang has sent 12 players to join Seoul’s 23-player team.
Thus, this is the first time that the two Koreas have joint hockey teams in the Olympic competition. At this year’s Olympics, this women’s hockey team lost all 5 matches. Yet they remain a symbol of peace for potential reconciliation between the two Koreas.
The Olympic Channel often provides news, live sports events, highlights and documentaries related to the Olympics and athletes. This channel was founded back then and covers sports in 11 languages daily.
Olympic Channel plans to showcase its first film with the documentary series Five Rings Films. This five-episode series will be directed by some of the most famous names in the movie industry. Song Parkman said that the film about the women’s hockey team of the two Koreas will not be in this series.
The highlight of the ceremony was the joint parade of athletes from the two Koreas under the flags. And this is the last parade in the opening ceremony. The whole PyeongChang Stadium was glowing with a grand opening ceremony, vibrant, bold modern.
This time around, Korea aims to win at least 8 gold medals. A record number for Korea, and entered the top 4 for the first time.
