Why On Earth Is Everyone So Fascinated By Kim Jong Un's Sister?

North Korea's delegation to the Winter Olympics returned to Pyongyang on Sunday, ending a three-day visit that amounted to a remarkable diplomatic breakthrough for the South Korean government but left big questions about whether it could lead to a solution to the decades-long military standoff between the two nations.

According to journalists in Pyeongchang for the ceremony, it's unclear what the two impersonators were doing, but they apparently made a scene.

At a dinner reception where President Moon sought an opportunity for dialogue between USA officals and North Koreans, Pence went through great - and somewhat awkward - lengths to avoid talking to them.

At the opening ceremonies Friday, Pence sat stone-faced in his seat as Moon and North Korean officials stood together with much of the stadium to applaud their joint team of athletes.

Kim Yo-jong invited Moon to visit "at the early date possible", a spokesman for South Korea's Presidential Palace said.

Any meeting would represent a diplomatic coup for Moon, who swept to power a year ago on a policy of engaging more with the reclusive North and has pushed for a diplomatic solution to the standoff over North Korea's nuclear and missile program.

Switzerland's Alina Muller nearly single-handedly spoiled Korea's Olympic unity moment yesterday, scoring four goals to power the Swiss to an 8-0 win over Korea's unified women's ice hockey team.

"The Japan-South Korea agreement is one that finally and irreversibly resolves (the issue). It is important to move forward with the drills as planned", Japanese Prime Minister's Shinzo Abe told Moon in what appeared to be an awkward encounter, the Blue House said.

For the first couple of years, Cattrall had a real ally on set in the form of series creator and producer Darren Star. Kim Cattrall , Sarah Jessica Parker , Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis in 2002 season of Sex and the City .

The younger Kim's trip to the South marks the first time that a member of the North's ruling dynasty has visited since the Korean war, which ended in an armistice in 1953.

"They played popular songs so we could enjoy the concert and it was beyond my expectations", said Jun Sang-sik, a 37-year-old public official who came with his 9-year-old daughter. "The summit with Moon is the only way to present a united front with South Korea and therefore avoid global sanctions".

"What can not be overlooked is that Moon did not directly demand North Korea to abandon its nuclear development, Moon should be aware that he has to urge denuclearisation to North Korea by himself, not depending on dialogue between the USA and North Korea", an editorial in the Yomiuri Newspaper read. But he also encouraged North Korea to "actively pursue" dialogue with the United States.

Direct negotiations between North Korea and the U.S. took place before the two previous inter-Korean summits.

But as North Korea's brutal dictator, Kim's brother has ruled with an iron fist since coming to power, operating Nazi-style prison camps, repressing political opposition and even executing senior officers and his own family members in an effort to consolidate power.

"I was encouraged by the affirmation of our alliance and our common goal, from both (Japanese) Prime Minister Abe and President Moon", Pence said.

Moon met Kim Yo-jong and the North's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam for talks and lunch at the Blue House on Saturday. Communications director Jarrod Agen tweeted a laudatory review of Pence's evening: "VP stands and cheers for USA athletes". About 800 conservative protesters gathered in central Seoul to tear up photos of Kim Jong Un and condemn Moon for being too soft on North Korea. "The Olympic Games is a symbol of how things might be in the world".

The invitation, delivered in person by Kim Jong Un's younger sister, Kim Yo Jong, will likely cause consternation in Washington, where the Trump administration has been leading a campaign to put "maximum pressure" on the Kim regime to give up its nuclear program.
