NBC Sports Apologizes to Koreans for 'Insensitive' Comment

United States television network NBC Sports has apologized for insensitive remarks made by its correspondent relating to South Korea during the PyeongChang Winter Games' opening ceremony.

​NBC Asian correspondent Joshua Cooper Ramo said on Friday during the Parade of Nations march by Japanese athletes at the opening ceremony that Japan is a country that occupied Korea from 1910 to 1945, but "every Korean" will tell you that Japan is a cultural, technological and economic example that has been so important to their own transformation.

​The U.S. broadcaster came under fire after the correspondent made the comment as many Koreans in the United States and other viewers criticized the remark.

​The broadcaster issued an apology on Saturday for its incorrect and insensitive comment by its correspondent, which angered many South Koreans.
