About 800 conservative protesters marched the streets of Seoul, protesting the participation of North Korea in the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. They criticized  President Moon Jae-in, who they regard as too soft on the North, as Yonhap informs.

The protesters tore a few photos of  Kim Jong-un. They also tried to burn a North Korean flag but were detained by the police.

"There is a faction that tries to turn this country communist. If we don't stop it, we will be starved or tortured to death under the rule of Kim Jong-un," the organizers argued.

Meanwhile, the North Korean art troupe, Samjiyon Orchestra, arrived in Seoul earlier in the day to hold a rehearsal for its next concert planned for tonight.
