PYEONGCHANG, SOUTH KOREA (WOLO) – The first weekend of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea brought much discussion about the friendly interaction between the North and South Korean delegations.

Leading up to the games, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence made it clear – he would not be interacting with anyone from North Korea. Regime leader Kim Jong Un sent his sister to represent the North.

Kim Yo Jung was seated behind V.P. Pence during the opening ceremonies Friday. Pence did not appear to even look her way, as athletes from North and South Korea marched as one in the stadium below. Meanwhile, South Korean president Moon Jae-in took every opportunity he could to interact with the dictator’s sister, who extended an invitation to him for a visit North.

Grace Joyal, Alicia Barnes and Tyler Ryan broke down the headlines surrounding the tension – or lack thereof – on Good Morning Columbia.
