    I'm watching the Olympics and I see someone from PRK. I'm thinking is this People's Republic of Korea???? So I look it up and Wiki (yeah I know) says PRK only existed from 1945-46

    So what is this? And is it South Korea? North Korea? Both?

    North Korea's IOC code is PRK

    So far they've won 2 Gold (weightlifing, gymnastics), 3 Silver (weightlifting) and 2 Bronze (shooting, ping pong) updated as of this evening.

    Well, unless you you're watching North Korean TV, then they are sweeping the Olympics, there's food-a-plenty and everyone is happy...very happy...
