Hyper-Kamiokande (Hyper-K) is a next generation water Chrenkov detector in Japan
consisting of two identical detectors (2x260 kton) with a staged construction.
Main goals of Hyper-K are a definitive measurement of CP violation
and neutrino mass ordering determination using beam neutrinos from J-PARC.
By relocating the 2nd detector in Korea with more than 3 times longer baseline
and more matter effect the sensitivities on the two measurements and non-standard neutrino interaction are improved.
Thanks to a larger overburden in Korean candidate sites, sensitivities on solar, supernova,
and supernova relic neutrinos are also improved.
In this talk I introduce this interesting option of having the 2nd tank in Korea
and present the physics potentials.
