Unidus is a medium-sized company founded in 1973. In addition to condoms, they also make surgical gloves.

- I wonder if Korea’s failure to pass an anti-discrimination law—a failure largely attributed to anti-homosexual Christian groups—will become an issue in the run-up to the PyeongChang games.
- Likewise, I wonder how Olympic snowboarders are going to get around Korea’s strict anti-pot laws.
