Kim Jong Un's Sister 😱 Just Shook Hands With South Korea's President And That's A Big Deal ❗

The 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea are underway after a spectacular opening ceremony in Pyeongchang. The ceremony itself saw athletes from North and South Korea walk into the stadium under one unified flag, something which hasn't happened since the Winter Olympics in Turin 12 years ago.

Even more significantly, South Korea's president Moon Jae-in greeted and shook hands with North Korean delegate Kim Yo Jong, who also just happens to be the sister of the North's leader Kim Jong Un.

President Moon greeting Kim Yo Jong, a high-ranking official in the North Korean regime who reportedly manages her brother's image and photo opportunities, would have been unthinkable even as recently as late last year.

Her visit to Pyeongchang itself marks the first time a member of the ruling Kim dynasty has traveled to South Korea since the end of the Korean War in 1953.

According to reports, there's a "good chance" President Moon will be invited to North Korea later this year by Kim Yo Jong, which will be the first time a South Korean President will visit the North in over a decade. While on the face of things Winter Olympics diplomacy may be thriving between North and South — even though it's not clear that this will carry on once the last medal is handed out — relations in Pyeongchang are still chilly between the North Korean and US delegations.
