Updated: 2021-08-24 16:59:34 KST
The Paralympic Games kick off tonight in Tokyo, and if you're tuning in for the opening ceremony, the South Korean delegation will be the 81st country to enter.
They had been told before that they'd be 92nd, but the Paralympic committee amended that on Monday.
South Korea's delegation for the ceremony will be small because of the record-high number of coronavirus cases in Tokyo, but it will include team leader Joo Won-hong.
The first team to enter will be the Paralympic Team representing refugees.
