Won't happen for three reasons:

1. Park has already represented the United States at the senior level (28 games and was the captain of the '06 World Championship team).
2. In order to be eligible to play for South Korea after representing the US, he has to play in the Asia League for four consecutive years. He could theoretically do that, but he has a contract through next season in Switzerland and...
3. He'll be 41 at the time of the 2018 Games. Very few players make it to 40, even with conditioning being what it is these days. I seriously doubt Park will still be playing by the time he would be eligible to play for South Korea.
