More than 200 athletes representing Team USA are taking part in 15 sporting events during the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
One competition that always gets attention is figure skating, and this year, it's notable for the record number of Asian American skaters.
And why should these 150 remaining people be sent back?
South Korea has one of the world’s highest human-to-convenience-store ratios, but increasingly, those stores are operating without staff, instead relying on machines to allow customers to purchase goods.

Eleven years ago, Taegun Kim came to Canada with his wife, daughter and son.
Mr Abe is seeking to reverse this stance, given North Korea’s firing of missiles over the country twice in recent months.A deportation would be catastrophic for the family."That notice means death to me," Kim told Al Jazeera.While Mr Trump called the nation “a threat to the civilised world” – as he stood in range of a North Korean ballistic missile – Mr Abe agreed that, when it came to dealing with Kim Jong-un, “all options were on the table”.He also announced new sanctions against dozens of North Koreans.Primetime dramas in South Korea — known as K-Dramas — are filled with implausible story lines, complete with romantic twists and turns.They’ve been popular in Asia for years, but thanks to online streaming websites, they’re now gaining a cult-like following in the US.It was unclear why there is such a large discrepency in figures.Many North Koreans may have left voluntary rather than face forced removal by the CBSA, and were not officially recorded.Another 150 are under imminent threat of deportation.However, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) told Al Jazeera it has only recorded 165 "removals" of North Korean citizens from Canada between 2013-17.
