The task of Pence's trip, created to distract the world's gaze from North and South Korea's Olympic unification, proved too hard to execute as remarkable images of a smiling Kim Yo Jong, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister, standing alongside Moon at the Blue House emerged from the day and dominated the airwaves.

He arrived late to the reception that Moon hosted before the opening ceremony, missing the group photo that included Kim Yong Nam, and stayed only five minutes, greeting the dignitaries at the top table but bypassing North Korea's head of state.

He also talked about visiting the North Korean border town of Kaesong, where the countries operated a joint factory park that had been a symbol of rapprochement before South Korea shut it down in 2016, after North Korea's fourth nuclear test. It was their first joint march since 2007.

The moment was too important to be overshadowed by a loss. She actually lit the cauldron as the home crowd roared.

USA officials have not ruled out the possibility that the vice president might meet a North Korean official at the Olympics. "It's a time to focus on messages of reconciliation and peace".

And that folder? It turns out it contained a personal letter from Kim Jong Un to South Korea's president. And like the ceremony, North and South leaders spent long moments in close proximity.

At the opening ceremony, Pence and the North Koreans, who were seated in the row behind him, studiously ignored each other, even as Moon and his wife turned around to greet the North Koreans warmly.

"The grievances that the world has about North Korea are very legitimate".

After meeting with Moon, the North Korean delegates boarded a bullet train to Gangneung, a coastal city hosting some Olympic events.

The Korean women's hockey team, the first in Olympic history to combine players from North and South, was routed 8-0 by Switzerland on Saturday night in its debut game, outshot 52-8 in a matchup that could have been far worse if not for the goaltending of Shin So Jung.

An early shot by North Korea's Han Soojin might have made a statement, if not altered the outcome. Not the crowd, not the players, and not their Swiss opponents.

The North initially had no athletes coming to the Olympics, but the International Olympic Committee allowed 22 as special entries. Normally dressed in blazing red, they paraded in wearing grey and white jackets and seemed - uncommonly for that delegation - quite sedate. More than 2,900 athletes from 92 countries will compete here, making it the biggest Winter Olympics to date.

Following his stint with the American delegation at speedskating, Moon attended a hockey game with Kim Yong Nam - the nominal North Korean head of state - on Saturday night.

After two failed Olympic bids that emphasized the high-sounding notion that the games could help make peace with North Korea, Pyeongchang finally sold its successful try in 2011 on the decidedly capitalistic goal of boosting winter sports tourism in Asia. -South Korean war games that North Korea claims are preparation for invasion. A few years later, the discovery of the huge progress Pyongyang had been surreptitiously making on its nuclear programs plunged the Korean Peninsula into crisis. A big one could be a demand to cease the U.S.

In Poland he has a rap song written in his honour, in Finland a punk band recorded a track about their hero and, while he did not threaten the medals in Pyeongchang on a bitterly cold Saturday night, the adoration from the South Korean spectators at Alpensia Ski Jumping Centre was abundant. "So the question is, when are they going to hear that?"
