The younger sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made history Friday when she paid an unprecedented visit to South Korea during the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics.

All broke out in broad smiles.

Kim Yong Nam, who is officially leading Pyongyang's diplomatic delegation to the Games, met Moon at a leaders' reception ahead of the opening ceremony in Pyeongchang.

But there haven't been any more reports of folks flying to one of the most repressive regimes on earth when they meant to go to South Korea either, so there's that. "There's a lot of speculation as to what the North Korean strategy is right now". First, Kim is the first member of North Korea's ruling family to enter South Korea since the end of the Korean War in 1953. There was another handshake. Some details of the opening ceremony remain closely guarded secrets, but expect a celebration of Korean culture and history.

Other demonstrators anxious the show of unity between the two nations threatened South Korea's democracy.

Here's what we know about Kim Yo Jong.

North and South Korea have always been at odds, so when athletes from both nations walked under the same flag at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics opening ceremony on Friday the world paid attention.

Earlier, the interplay between protocol and power was put on show when Kim Yo-jong and North Korea's ceremonial head of state Kim Jong-nam arrived in Seoul on the historic trip. "Contrary to popular belief, the 14-hour time difference works really great for live primetime coverage", says Jim Bell, president of NBC Olympics Production & Programming. An outbreak at last year's World Athletics Championship in London forced competitors from several countries to miss events.

Decorated with flashy LED lights, fiery explosions, catchy K-pop music, and elaborate performances, the opening ceremony at this year's 23rd winter games is set to become another legendary memory.

More than 2,900 athletes from 92 countries will compete, making it the biggest Winter Olympics to date.

It may appear to viewers of the Olympic Winter Games that relations between North and South Korea are warming up.
