Richard Park would probably be their best "prospect", but he would have to sign with a Korean team pretty soon to get his 4 years in.

If you mean qualify for the Olympics, they automatically qualify as hosts.

Likely, but it is also likely that they can win a couple games and stay up. The great thing about the new format is that pretty much all the teams within a group are fairly equal and can beat each other any given day. It's impossible to predict how South Korea will play next year. I think they could definitely beat Great Britain, maybe even Japan and Hungary.
Actually it hasnīt been decided yet whether Korea will get an automatic spot at the hockey tournament AFAIK.

As for their performance next year, well obviously anythign can happen, but it would be a huge upset if they somehow managed to stay up.
