The biggest Asian Games will kick off on Sunday in Busan, South Korea, with its 43 members, including North Korea as well as the newly created nation East Timor.

There will be 38 sports events in these games. The Afghan soccer team will compete for the first time after being absent for 8 years. Due to the lingering effect from the World Cup 3 months ago, 80% of tickets have yet to be sold.
