Kim Jong Un impersonator taken away by security at hockey match

Sources Moon Suggests US Have Exploratory Talks with N. Korea

And this is not the first controversy that has struck the North Korea cheerleading squad at the Winter Olympics.

South Korea will pay a couple million dollars to cover the high cost of housing and feeding North Korea's 424-member delegation of cheerleaders, cultural performers, and other support staff.

Identified only as an Australian man going by "Howard", the impersonator showed up before the group of cheerleaders during the unified Korean hockey team's game against Japan.

Referring to the sudden diplomatic warming between North and South Korean officials prior to the Olympics, he added, "I laud the fact that inter-Korean dialogue is taking place for the success of the Pyeongchang Olympics". They even performed the Communist themed song Imagine by John Lennon. "Even the hair is identical", said Ha Tae-kyung of the minor opposition Bareun Party.

Some of the cheerleaders were amused and some were not, according to Yahoo!

South Korea and organizers also have had to perform diplomatic acrobatics of their own to accommodate the visitors without violating economic sanctions aimed at punishing the North for its nuclear and missile development in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

"If Moon Jae-in is wise, he will insist that the nuclear issue is first on the agenda", said Lim Jae Chun, a professor of North Korean studies at Korea University.

While both North and South Korea were diplomatic winners, Ripley said the US was the clear loser.

"The point is, no pressure comes off until they are actually doing something that the alliance believes represents a meaningful step toward denuclearization", Pence said.

I understand the impulse to cover North Korean athletes and diplomacy, because this is a rare opportunity.

He said North Korea "needs to get out of this risky situation, but needs to save face as well".

Griffin said playing for a unified Korea - part of a landmark deal between South and North Korea after months of tensions - felt strangely normal.
