An uncommon event took place in South Korea

Employees from the North and South Korea played rare football matches at Sangam World Cup Stadium, Seoul, on Saturday, where around 20,000 gathered to cheer them.

Two matches were played, first between South Korean members of the Federation of Korean Trade Unions (FKTU) and North Korean construction workers from the General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea (GFTUK).Followed by the next match between South Korean members of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) and North Korean light industry workers from GFTUK.


The crowd enjoyed it regardless of who won or lost. Instead of shouting “Dae-han Minguk,” which means Republic of Korea in English, they shouted “Tong-il Jo-guk,” which means unified homeland. North Korean teams won both games 3-1 and 2-0.

It was in October 2015, when the duo played for the last time

The crowd also raised placards in white and red which conveys, “We are one.”
