12:39 am
northern ireland for the benefit of all communities. on the grounds. it's not only segments, stability and predictability, and in the special ingredient for the local economy to flourish. that also pays the a for enhanced opportunities. but nevertheless, the leader of the main pro british units party here at the northern ireland assembly have this to say, it still leaves in place and i receive border. there will still be checks on the movement of goods within the united kingdom. and that's not something we find acceptable. now this is a welcome. first step, the will be intensive and focused negotiations. so let's see where we get to. but we do need to see more progress. this falls well short of what we require. so what next? well, your opinion officials will be in london starting negotiations on friday with british officials and the u. k. government position is pretty outright it's. it's saying that it wants the european court of justice removed from the equation in
12:40 am
terms of over seeing things in terms of this deal. and it wants to more or less rip up the northern and protocol. now, this is unfathomable, in terms of how the you could accept that sort of situation. it isn't going to happen. the, you, you're saying it's, it's, is take this, this own nothing at all. so this is a really tense tundra, lots and lots of negotiations ahead in the coming weeks. poland that plans to spend more than $400000000.00 on a wall along its border with bell of roof. this follows a surgeon refugees and migrants crossing the bell of ruffian border to poland as well as lithuania and latvia, the polish government and the e. you say it's a form of hybrid warfare the loose is waging on the block in retaliation for sanctions, but refugee charities accuse poland of illegal push backs and inhumane treatment is very challenge reports. now from the border. last meeting, someone who judge

12:48 am
a world wide sensation, adding to south korea's growing pop culture influence or cuen kim is a professor of east asian studies at the university of california, irvine. and writes about korean popular culture. i spoke to him a little earlier, but the reasons behind squid games success well is a fantasy. i'm drama. it actually borrows from this kind of gothic, you know, creepy dition that many people recognize i. and yet, the, the actual premise in the background, you know, harsh reality, that nuke capitalism, new liberal capitalism and created the one that is about, you know, cutthroat competition. so the 2 things jiving together, i think, made it accessible to many people. oh, who resonate with some of the present day? you know, kind of threats and intense kind of forms of competition that they've entered into
12:49 am
. we perhaps don't want to give away any spoiler is because of this li, a lot of people won't have watch their own. want to watch that out until the end. but obviously it's about inequality and that will resonate all over the world. but what makes it specifically korean? i think korea has a unique kind of a sense of the history. korea went from a very poor country that is really from a pos postwar poverty to a very successful you know, economic miracles. you know, in the eighty's and ninety's and then over the last 2030 years as a capitalism crisis deepen, you know, what ended up happening is it created the intent kind of inequality. a really short gap between haves and have nots. and that's one of the things that you get not only sweet game, but obviously a lot of these films likes parasite 2 years ago,
12:50 am
which equally deliver similar kind of toning theme. when we think of popular culture is that really managed to be global. usually it's the united states with hollywood or with music. i mean, certainly things in english anyway, which being the international language, makes it more accessible for most people. but now we're seeing a korean, a korean art winning an oscar dominating netflix. k pop obviously is huge. it, do you think that korean art forms will begin to really dominate the global landscape? a korean cultural content. yes. is here to stay for many years you was repressed, you know, because of, you know, just overwhelming kind of, again, censorship, that was placed in korean, a popular culture for years and years. you know, before you democratize your 2030 years ago. and now you're enjoying, you know, different kinds of, again, explosive expression that has to do with not just popular culture,
12:51 am
but cinema literature and theater. also in korea that has been moving many ways the cultural this creates seem to enjoy with, you know, so much attention being paid to korean cultural content. whether it be netflix, you know, spending, you know, $500000000.00 a year. and, you know, developing and making korean series like squid game or, you know, b, t as making, as, you know, global tour, you know, as we speak. these are the kinds of places where we find, you know, instances i think, you know, korean popular culture, enjoying his heyday and then you know, probably for many years to come. ok, it's time for the sport now. here is gemma in doha. thank you. barbara kenya's, president says the country has lost one of its sporting harris. after long distance run, a access to rope was found stabbed to death. the 25 year old body was discovered at

12:53 am
he told us about the devastation being fed to interrupt same country. well, it's a huge, huge show. come in all the newspapers tomorrow. we'll have that story on the front page because we're just coming from the olympic games in tokyo, se computers in the 5000 meters. and just last month as uses you broke that we miss only 10 kilometer one record on. there are so many top athletes, we have all the big champions. why champions, you know, congregated at home, they just want the family and the way in the state of shock. i mean, they could hardly say what, i do believe that these great talent has died in such a mysterious circumstances. by me and i confront football, i live it's. amanda has been sentenced to 6 months in a spanish prison for breaking a restraining order more than 4 years ago. and as was convicted of domestic violence in 2017 for his voting. his then girlfriend and now wife. during his time, as i'm, as i scream with dread player,

12:55 am
limpid committees or within the olympic movement. we have no ability to go into a country and tell them what to do with all we can do is to award the olympic games to a country under conditions set out in a house contract. the i o. c stands comes no surprise to olympic, o 5 professor, jewels boycott who we spoke to earlier. when vice president codes is talking there, you can see the international olympic committee selective ethics on full display. on one hand, it's the all powerful entity. the can choose where to place the games. on the other hand, it acts as if they can't do anything. you can see in the olympic charter itself, there's all sorts of wonderful ideas about freedom, justice, dignity, a respecting diversity. but then when it comes to china, where you have ongoing crimes against humanity, those are, those qualities are not to be found. and yet the international epic committee look
12:56 am
the other direction we saw with the most recent olympics in tokyo, that they would go on to desperate measures to carry out the olympics even during a dangerous pandemic. even when the host city did not want to continue with the games, and yet the games went on because the io see made it so you're seeing again the reason is money, they need to keep that money flowing into olympic coffers. on the other hand, there's a long tradition in the international olympic committee of pretending that politics don't matter when berlin host games in 1936, hitler was in charge. and yet the i o. c said there is nothing we can do about that . now what i'm not saying is that we're looking at the same situation between hitler and beijing. absolutely not. however, what i am saying is there's a long tradition of staring injustice in the faced by the international committee and choosing to look the other way. pressure is building on athletes to speak out. after all, we're living in what we might call the athlete empowerment era. and many athletes are really in there, increasingly concerned about injustices in our world. and yet,
12:57 am
are they putting themselves in danger or do the international committee not have their back if they just stand up for the principles enshrined in the charter? so we're looking down the barrel of a real face off here, and i'll be fascinating to see what happens in the months ahead. and finally, we don't often have badminton on al jazeera, but there was a special piece of play at a made a tournament in denmark, taiwanese play at looting, out managed and incredible recovery shots, his diving effort, not only kept the point alive, but he won it as well, or lou needed medical treatment, but it was worth it as he went on it when that is all your support from me for now . back to barbara in london. gemma. thank you. now a solar storm has produced, spectacular light shows across northern parts of the globe. the aurora borealis, or the northern lights lit up skies in north america and northern europe. overnight on twos, they know the strength of the solar option meant the phenomenon could be seen much
