The Korean Women's Ice Hockey team will be remembered

Speaking to a U.S. newspaper, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence emphasized that the United States would "continue the maximum pressure" against Pyongyang but also said, "But if you want to talk, we'll talk". Even though he emphasized talks are not negotiations, it shows the US has changed its attitude.

The Korean team entered Wednesday's game still looking for its first goal after back-to-back 8-0 losses against Switzerland and Sweden.

Adm. Harry Harris told the House Armed Services Committee on Feb. 14 that he does not agree with the prevailing view that Kim is building a nuclear arsenal to safeguard his regime only.

Pyongyang has sent some 22 athletes and more than 400 delegates, including a team of cheerleaders and an orchestra, to this year's Winter Games.

One of the clearest gestures seen during the opening ceremony was the presence of Kim Yo-jong - the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and head of the North's Olympic delegation.

Swaying, chanting, and clapping as one, always in uniform and never breaking character, it's the cheerleaders from South Korea's oppressive, dictatorial neighboring country that have captured peoples' attention.

Dressed in red uniforms with red-and-white woolly hats, they filed out to the toilet with their ever-present minders waiting patiently outside, occasionally approaching photographers to stop them taking pictures.

"The two Koreas playing as a joint team alone is significant enough but the fact that we are competing against Japan is incredibly symbolic", Kim Seong-kyung, 30, a Seoul resident who stood in line with her husband for two hours, said before the game began.

Japan, which sees itself as a potential target of North Korean missiles, has been one of the most vocal proponents of pressuring the regime into changing course. Kim's wife Ri Sol-Ju is rarely shown to the public, but Sputnik News has gleaned some details about the DPR's First lady. "And I wanted to send by my silence a very clear message that the people of the United States of America know who we're dealing with", he said.

Geist said South Koreans he spoke to couldn't believe Americans were "falling for this routine, because none of us are".

Away from the ice, a double of North Korean leader Kim was being hauled off by police after dancing provocatively in front of the North Korean support.

Korean Central News Agency did report on comments Kim Jong Un made in response to South Korea hosting officials from his government during the Olympics, according to CNN's Will Ripley. Images of the North Korean leaders are tightly choreographed and controlled by the nation's state propagandists.

The Pyeongyang-born duo smashed their personal best score to reach the free skate showdown on Saturday. Along with a Donald Trump impersonator, he was kicked out of the event.

"I love how he finds open seams to shoot and his shot is unreal", Lee said.

He's since said he did not try to avoid Kim Jong Un's sister at the Olympics, but did ignore her.

Listen to the testimonies of those who've escaped North Korea.

The goal of any dialogue, however, must be to end North Korea's nuclear program.
