At Winter Games opening ceremony, a message of peace

"These have not disrupted any events".

Rumors have been circulating that cyber attacks could be orchestrated by North Korea, which is located just 50 miles from the Game's site in Pyeongchang, or by Russia, in retaliation for its team being banned from the 2018 competition due to its major doping scandal. Normally dressed in blazing red, they paraded in wearing grey and white jackets and seemed - uncommonly for that delegation - quite sedate.

This 60-minute match was always going to be significant no matter what the result. "It's a time to focus on messages of reconciliation and peace".

Cybersecurity experts are worried about hacking during the Pyeongchang Olympics. It was an event to attend and be seen.

Sung said organizers sold 99 percent of 35,000 tickets to the opening ceremony, though viewers noticed many empty seats.

The opening ceremony was attended by several heads of state and included North Korea's ceremonial leader, Kim Yong Nam, and the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The Olympics were the biggest show in TV, and NBC aims to keep it that way as the Games continue to Feb. 25. No-one expected this combined team to achieve anything on the ice. They live under very different, sometimes intolerable conditions, but they are, in fact, fellow people.

A Twitter search for "empty seats Olympics" brings up dozens of posts from social media users disappointed in the turnout for the Opening Ceremonies. I think that when you watch these athletes compete, patience is something that is critical. With speeds hovering around 90 mph, times can be so close that speed is measured to the one-thousandth of a second! "We're happy", he said.

Weirdly mesmerizing, they were more absorbing than the match itself. The North's taekwondo team arrived in the South on Wednesday. Here are the singers performing in 2015.

There were chants, a burst of traditional song and even a strange occasion when each cheerleader donned masks.

Yet, he left South Korea on Saturday night having been told essentially to butt out of domestic Korean politics.

In 1988, democratic reforms were still new for the South, which for nine years prior had been controlled by dictator Chun Doo-hwan.

The North Korean cheerleaders wore red jumpsuits and took over small sections throughout the arena and mostly sang encouraging numbers such as "Win! Win!"

On the eve of the Olympic games, Kim Jong Un held a massive military parade to showcase his country's military prowess in the wake of repeated threats of nuclear war agains the United States.

For a stupid but explicable reason-American culture is bored, indulgent, tribal, and unthinking-Kim Yo-jong, the younger sister of North Korean dicator Kim Jong-un, was memed (flatteringly) because she gave Vice President Mike Pence "side eye".
