It was a raucous and historic night mixing sports and politics on an worldwide stage for a second straight night in this remote region of South Korea. And like the ceremony, North and South leaders spent long moments in close proximity.

In August 2009, the DPRK sent a high-ranking condolence delegation to bid farewell to late South Korean President Kim Dae-jung who held the first inter-Korean summit with late DPRK leader Kim Jong Il, father of the current leader.

Last month, a White House official told reporters Pence would attend the Winter Olympics opening to cheer American athletes and to counter any North Korean effort to "hijack" the games with a propaganda campaign. Several players were born and raised outside of South Korea but naturalized in order to play on the team for the Olympics.
