More than 50 years later of the Korean War of 1950, a member of North Korea’s ruling family crossed the border to go to the South. 

Sister of North Korea’s totalitarian leader Kim Jong-Un is visiting the South as a member of a high-level delegation ahead of the opening ceremony of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

Arriving on her brother`s private jet for a three-day visit, Kim Yo Jong and the country`s 90-year-old nominal head of state Kim Yong Nam are scheduled to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Saturday in a luncheon at Seoul`s presidential palace.
Both North and South Korea are due to march together under a "unification flag" at the opening ceremony on Friday

Meanwhile, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has also arrived in South Korea. 

In what was described as a major diplomatic breakthrough, North Korea said it would send a delegation of athletes and performers to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Meanwhile, US Vice President Mike Pence who will lead a U.S. delegation to the 2018 Winter Olympics is also scheduled to meet with some North Korean defectors.

North Korea staged a relative tone down military parade to mark the 70th anniversary of its armed forces in its capital on Thursday 8th of February, just a day before the Winter Olympics begin. 

The Pyeongchang Winter Olympics are being held from February 9 to 25.
