Graceful human touch evident in elegant opening ceremony — Simply powerful

Moon had said "let's create conditions to make it happen", the official said, an indication that Moon was likely to accept the invitation.

The South Korean president requested both that North Korea re-open dialogue with the US, and that the Koreas hold talks.

Then, two athletes from the joint Koreas women's hockey team, Chung Su-hyon of North Korea and Park Jong-ah of South Korea, climbed stairs to the cauldron with the torch. The shots were 52-8. Pence's father, Edward Pence, was a veteran of the Korean War - he won a Bronze Star for his military service in 1953.

Kim Yo-jong, the first member of Pyongyang's ruling dynasty to set foot in the South since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War, accompanied Kim Yong-nam, North Korea's ceremonial head of state, to the meeting.

While a summit in Pyongyang would signal warming ties on the peninsula, it also risks driving a wedge in the alliance between the US and South Korea.

Internet problems before and during the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics on Friday night are being investigated as a possible cyberattack, officials said Saturday. Most notably, NBC did not shy away from the political angle.

Whether it means anything, nobody should guess.

It's unclear the exact reason for the meeting, but it's still a significant moment for the two countries.

However, analyst Robert E Kelly of Pusan National University tweeted that the inter-Korean relations would "return to form". And yes, they cheered. He also apparently urged concrete action on the nuclear and missile issue.

Who would have thought not one but two golfers would be part of the pageantry? They chanted "Cheer up!" Locals and visitors will be cheering them on at The Montage, a chic hotel located in Deer Valley mountain (where skiers competed in the 2002 Olympics).

While it may be the pinnacle of some athletes' careers, New Zealand's entrance to this year's Winter Olympics in PyeongChang has been give a "dishonourable mention" by an ESPN writer. "It's like they're robots". Their people - they've done nothing wrong. The games, which run from February 9th to 25th, feature a record 102 events in fifteen sports disciplines. The alternative of holding the Olympics in the same place every year would be far less inclusive. But she believes it is a worthy goal.

"It's a big question, right?" said Yoo. "I mean, short of giving up their nuclear weapons, a sustained period of peace".

"At the championship level, it's all about the details". Don't miss Mirai Nagasu, the elegant 24-year-old ice skater who has mastered the insanely-difficult triple axel. "I want unification, peacefully".

They added that Kim Jong-un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, the country's foreign minister, Kim Yong Nam, and the South Korean President all gave a warm welcome to the players. The cheerleaders had not left their seats, and sang another singsong tune into the relative quiet.

North and South Korean athletes were the last to enter the stadium for the parade of nations. "'It's because of you guys that the chemistry is good".

"The vice present cheered for the team he's rooting for".
