You know, those zainichi Koreans ont he NK squad bug me.  They will go back to being pro athletes in Japan and reaping the benfits of captialism, whilst they bretheren will probably get sent to labor camp for losing to Portugal so badly.

Japan wouldn’t let them play, because zainichi KOreans can’t be Japanese citizens.  And since those foolios pledged loyalty tot he DPRK and the Dear Leader, Sotuh Korea wouldn’t let them either.

Fools.  If you’re going to cry during the damn North Korean anthme, don’t go back to Japan afterwards, be a pro athlete and drive in your Hummer.

wikipedia (so take it for what it’s worth) says zainichi can take on japanese citizenship if they also take on japanese nationality (seems kind of weird, but i guess it’s possible with some strings).  i got the impression that the jong tae-se had his choice from this ny times article.  i also learned that he and i share the same last name (鄭).

I think making a choice to follow an ideology is easy if you aren’t subject to live under the conditions of said ideology.  I mean, North Korean ideology sounds pretty good.  Korean Self-Determination, and not caving into the influences of the Western World.  But he also gets to eat everyday and has no restrictions on his freedoms in Japan, well relative to NK anyway.
