I'm talking about 1998 though. They qualified for Pool A in the Asian qualification and 2 months after the Olympics they were playing in Pool A.

And they didn't even finish bottom in Nagano.

Just look at the Korean record. They haven't won a single game against Japan, they're constantly having walkovers against Kazakhstan in the Asian Winter Games. It's a third tier team. What's the point of having them in the Olympics? Do you really want to see scores like 20 or 30:0?
