Inspired by Mexican border Seesaw, tetherball set installed in Korean DMZ in attempt to increase relations

Earlier this week, artists installed a row of seesaws on the U.S-Mexico border in an effort bring both nations together.

Inspired by this, North and South Korea have agreed to place a used tether-ball in the middle of the DMZ, as both nations work towards more amicable relations.

North and South Korea have been at odds since the end of the Korean war in 1953; but in the past few years efforts have been made to establish a more civil relationship.

At the Tetherball unveiling, a short game was played Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un, and President Moon Jae-In.

President Moon, in an act of diplomatic strength, allowed the game to end as a tie, with both scoring 2-2.

North Korea has released a press statement that Supreme Leader Kim won 237-0.

Earlier this week a North Korean soldier defected after crossing the DMZ into South Korea.

An anonymous source suggested that Kim Jong-Un approved of the tetherball set for more nefarious reasons, as any potential defectors may get tangled up in the rope as they try to pass it into South Korea.
