It is the first time that North Korea has broadcast a South Korean game since the opening of the World Cup.

North Korea, which had been broadcasting except for the Korea-US-Japan match at the beginning of the World Cup, started broadcasting the US and Japan matches belatedly, but did not broadcast the three group stage matches of the Korean team to the end.

North Korea's decision to broadcast South Korea's game in the round of 16 seems to have taken into account the fact that the Brazilian team is ranked No.

Chosun Central TV relayed the game in a relatively neutral manner, while reporting the Korean team's goal chances.

Chosun Central TV, which introduced Son Heung-min as the main player of the Korean team, also reported that he was not able to show his skills due to the Brazilian team's intensive defense.
