Video - NOKO Kim’s Sister Arrives For Olympics 2018

Even though VP Pence had said that he went to the Olympics opening ceremony not wanting the North Koreans to ‘hijack’ all the publicity, it is clear that is exactly what is happening as the South Koreans tuned in massively to see a member of the Jung-Un family make a historic visit to the south (the first since the 1950s) today.

Arriving at a train station in Pyeongchang hours ahead of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics, Ms Kim Yo Jong, current NOKO leader Kim Jung-Un’s little sister, thus became the first member of North Korea's ruling family to visit the South since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War (in which the US backed the south, while China backed the North) .

The North Korean delegation included the country's (90-year-old) head of state Mr. Kim Yong Nam, who was expected to attend a VIP reception before the opening ceremony.

As stated before, US Vice President Mike Pence is also present in Pyeongchang for the opening ceremony.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has invited Kim Yo Jong and Kim Yong Nam to a luncheon at Seoul's presidential palace on Saturday in what would be the most significant diplomatic event between the rivals in years, thanks to pressure on the North from US President Trump in recent months for the North to seek diplomatic solutions to the current conflict.

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Together with our allies and partners, we will continue to strive to peacefully dismantle North Korea’s nuclear program and alleviate the suffering of its people.

Most political analysts agree that the North's decision to send Ms. Kim Yo Jong to the Olympics shows the ambition of despot leader Kim Jung-Un to break out from diplomatic isolation by firstly improving his relations with the South and then later trying to build on that approach to open relations with the United States.

President Moon of South Korea expressed his thanks to President Trump of the US for keeping the pressure on the North in a speech a few weeks ago.

Dude… can you imagine dating her?

per wiki…

In January 2015, she reportedly married Choe Song,[5] the second son of government official Choe Ryong-hae.[6] However, South Korean government sources have since denied the accuracy of these reports. Kim Yo-jong was pregnant and expecting a child in May 2015. The father, not identified, is thought to be a fellow alumnus of Kim Il-sung university and either an official at the Workers Party's Room 39 or working at a military unit responsible for guarding the country's leader.[7]
