Watch Unified Korean Hockey Team Go Nuts After Scoring First Olympic Goal

Caroline Carter

Gangneung: A unified Korean hockey team lost a grudge match 4-1 to Japan for their third straight Olympics defeat in front of a partisan crowd that included the North Korean cheerleaders and a Kim Jong Un lookalike.

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

The home fans chanted "We are one" even as the first joint Korean team to appear at an Olympic Games were on the end of another heavy defeat.

North Korea "constantly couples its diplomacy with demands for aid, especially cash, as though the worldwide community has to pay for the privilege of engaging", Robert Kelly, a professor of global relations at Pusan National University in South Korea, told The Washington Post.

Kim Yo Jong, the North Korean propaganda director, visited the Olympics after South Korea requested the communist dictatorship send a delegation to the games.

There, Kim delivered a letter from her brother expressing a wish for peace and then, a verbal invitation to meet him in Pyongyang at President Moon's "earliest convenience". He noted that North Korea's media acknowledged Kim's ill-health in late September 2014 following a near-month-long absence from the public eye.

The money represents the largest amount spent on the North's participation in an worldwide sports event hosted by the South, despite the DPRK sending larger delegations in the past.

AvalonBay Communities Inc (AVB) Position Raised by Pinebridge Investments LP
Tiaa Cref Invest Mgmt Limited Liability Corp invested 0.06% in AvalonBay Communities, Inc. (NYSE:AVB) has been trading recently. Amica Retiree Medical Trust acquired a new stake in AvalonBay Communities in the 3rd quarter valued at approximately $132,000.

So a story had to be concocted to fulfill the headline's idea that Kim Yo Jong has drawn more attention at the Olympics than the much more deserving athletes who do such incredible things (such as US snowboarder Jamie Anderson in midair in the photo above). Necks craned and mobile phones were held aloft to catch a glimpse.

At the same time, North Korea recently has shown no interest in talking to the United States and has made clear it has no intention of negotiating away its nuclear and missile programs. So when she starts rolling her head and giving more emotion, I'm like, 'Yeah!

"WE ARE." yelled the several dozen North Koreans, all dressed identically in red ski jackets and white and red hats. CNN said she was stealing the show. "She has given the secretive regime a human face", wrote BBC correspondent Laura Bicker. A South Korean student told Reuters news agency: "They're a bit old fashioned. but it was meaningful that we shared this moment together".

The Korean cheer squad was Un-impressed. "It's nice that North Koreans are coming here smiling and dancing, but I think a true sign of change and good intentions would be [for the North] to help resolve some of these outstanding crimes". According to The Washington Post, the two agreed on resuming talks with North Korea without any set rules, as well as continuing to use the sanctions imposed on the country as leverage.

"We haven't been able to see the beach", complained one of the cheerleaders as they returned to the bus. "Certainly, that would undermine the maximum pressure campaign of President Trump at the United Nations Security Council".

Mr Pence came face to face with Ms Kim at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics, but they did not interact.
