    Kim Jong Un Impersonator Crashes Olympics, Again

    An impersonator of Kim Jong Un showed up to the Ice Hockey Women Preliminary Round match between Korea and Japan at Kwandong Hockey Centre on Feb. 14, 2018, in Gangneung, South Korea.

    A Kim Jong Un impersonator calling himself only Howard from Australia made an appearance at the Korea-Japan women's ice hockey game at the Pyeongchang Olympics on Wednesday. 

    He briefly walked in front of a North Korean cheering section waving a unification flag and smiling Wednesday before being moved away to his seat nearby.

    Security then came to take him out of the arena as a crowd began to form. Police later took over, surrounding him in a hall outside the seating area and preventing him from going back into the game.

    The impersonator wore a long black overcoat and glasses and sported the North Korean dictator's trademark haircut.

    He said, "This is how I look," as police led him into a staff room.

    It was the same man who showed up at the opening ceremony. He was removed from the stadium along with a man dressed as President Donald Trump. 

    "We're getting along great," the Kim Jong Un lookalike told Reuters then. "We wanted to surprise everyone and bring world peace and then we’re being escorted out by security guards, which I think is really unfair. Doesn’t everyone want peace?

    The fake politicians were photographed by a wire service giving each other a fist bump before getting the boot.

    Kim Yo Jong, Kim Jong Un's younger sister, was on hand for the ceremonies. The first immediate member of North Korea's ruling family to visit South Korea since the Korean War in 1953, Kim Yo-jong shook hands with South Korea President Moon Jae-in, watched the ceremonies from a box that also included United States VP Mike Pence, and was granted the honor of officially announcing the start of the 2018 Olympic Games.
