“You must have had a hard journey because of the cold,” South Korean President Moon Jae-in said to her. “It was no problem, Mr. President, thank you for being so kind,” replied Kim Yo-jong, with a stern but sharp look on her face.
They exchanged the usual pleasantries of people who have not met in a long time, or have never even met at all. But, when we will look back on this moment 30 (or more) years on, these pleasantries will be seen as nothing short of historic. This is because the exchange of words took place between people who have just made it possible to organize an event that will remain engraved in our memory.
The dialogue between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un’s sister, the special envoy of the North to the Olympics in South Korea, officially confirmed the invitation that her brother had made to Moon to come to Pyongyang “as soon as possible.”
