Koreans in metro talk significance of Winter Olympics

After months of silence on whether it would even take part in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in the South, the Games have driven a rapprochement on the peninsula, while the North's athletes, performers and delegates have dominated the headlines. The overture follows heightened tensions over the North's missile tests.

Seoul last hosted the 1988 Summer Olympics.

Moon and Pence didn't discuss an invitation extended by Kim Jong Un to meet with the South Korean leader in Pyongyang, said a senior White House official who requested anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

Kim Jo Jong carried a blue folder adorned with a seal, which was later confirmed to have contained a private message from Kim Jong Un himself.

As the Winter Olympics formally opened with Friday's Opening Ceremonies, the Pyeongchang Organizing Committee said its servers were being hacked by an unidentified attacker.

"Before posing together for the photo, President Moon explained the meaning of the art work to Kim Yo Jong and Kim Yong Nam", said a presidential aide.

Moon apparently cited the conditions necessary for an inter-Korean summit.

The worry is that the varying approaches might soon lead to a rift between South Korea and the United States, leaving Seoul to negotiate with Pyongyang on its own.

US Vice-President Mike Pence has said his country and South Korea are in complete agreement on the need to maintain pressure on North Korea.

The North's KCNA news agency, reporting on a military parade in Pyongyang the previous day, introduced armed forces minister Kim Jong Gak as vice marshal and director of the military's General Political Bureau - a post previously held by Hwang.

USA officials have been urging South Korea to be cautious in its rapprochement with the North.

Turns out it wasn't a secret plan for the newly unified Korean women's hockey team to beat Switzerland. Moon served as Roh's chief of staff at the time.

"This is the first time Mike Pence has been accused of being a snob", said an aide to the vice president, who was not authorized to speak publicly on the North Korean reports.

Her muted style stands in stark contrast to Kim Jong Un, whose eccentric style and fiery rhetoric has shaped the image of North Korea. Moon shook Kim's hand; Pence stared forward and refused to engage with her.

He added that United States and allied military exercises will be delayed until after the end of the Winter Olympics on February 25.
