Yes, that headline and that tweet are true. Dennis Rodman is in North Korea as part of a "basketball diplomacy" initiative that will be shown as part of a news report for North Korean television and for a special on HBO. Rodman just seems like an odd choice to represent the United States in North Korea, well known for its strict cultural and dress code restrictions. Rodman is not exactly conservative in those matters.
And North Koreans, getting a look at him for the first time, are getting a bit of a culture shock. One even said "He looks like a monster" when shown a photo from his playing days.
Hard to disagree.
Still Rodman is an ambassador of the United States and arrives in the embattled country at a critical time in history. It was only a few wee...

The attraction between Dennis Rodman and North Korea may indeed be mutual.
On Monday, the news emerged that the former rebounding bad boy would be heading to the politically isolated country to engage in some “basketball diplomacy,” and convince the country to go a peaceful route — which would certainly conflict with its nuclear ambitions. By Wednesday Rodman had apparently...

Rodman and Kim sat side by side at an exhibition game in Pyongyang on Thursday, chatting as they watched players from North Korea and the U.S. play in mixed teams,...
Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea this week for a goodwill tour. Yes, Dennis Rodman of all people. Though his wild child reputation makes him an unlikely candidate to thaw relations between the US and North Korea, Kim Jong Un is said to have been a fan of the 1990s Chicago Bulls, with whom Rodman won three championships, so maybe The Worm does have a chance to improve relations...
Eccentric Hall of Famer, Dennis Rodman, raised eyebrows when he made the wrong assumption Tuesday that Psy, famous for ‘Gangnam Style’, a song referencing the lifestyle associated with the Gangnam District of Seoul, the capital of South Korea, was from North Korea. Psy fired back at the playful-intended, but, wrongful Tweet, setting the record straight that he is actually...
Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea on Tuesday as part of a sports diplomacy initiative with VICE media. Rodman and members of the Harlem Globetrotters will be running a basketball camp for children, which will be filmed for a documentary airing on HBO in April as part of a larger series.
While the foreign relations between the United States and North Korea are as strained as...
If you hadn’t heard Dennis Rodman is on a “tour” of North Korea. And apparently things are going swell. So swell that Rodman has taken a liken to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after the two took in an exhibition game in Pyongyang.
The two were seen laughing together and even had dinner together. Kim even reportedly told Rodman that “he hoped the visit would break the ice...
Yes, this really is happening. Dennis Rodman is going to North Korea to help push sports diplomacy in the communist nation.
As reported by AP Rodman along with three members of the Harlem Globetrotters and VICE media team are going to North Korea to shoot footage for a new show set to air on HBO.

We reported on Tuesday that NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman was leading a contingent of basketball players to North Korea for a hoop-oriented tour of the secretive nation. The Worm seemed like an odd choice for a diplomatic mission, but now it all makes sense. The above photo is of Kim Jong Un at a Swiss prep school (what, North Korean schools aren’t good enough?) in the 1990s...
