Winter Olympics 2018: Kim Jong Un impersonator makes another appearance

This time he appeared alone at the Korea-Japan hockey game on Wednesday and caused quite a stir before he was kicked out of the game.

He revealed to Yahoo Sports that his name is "Howard" and although he's from Australia, he lives in Hong Kong, but doesn't speak Korean.

The impersonator's agenda was to, "Enjoy the game, meet the cheerleaders, which I did, and create some good political satire," but apparently it didn't all go quite as planned.



“Today I attended a hockey game, and unfortunately, they did not have a sense of humor,” Howard said in an appearance on an Australian morning show called "Sunrise".



He was detained by police beneath the stands for half an hour before he was forced out of the game.

"The police got involved and they dragged me away — they said for my own safety,” Howard said. “What do we have, 10 policemen? What do you think I’m going to do? I don’t bring violence. I just want to see the game, so what’s the problem?”
