Amazing Photos From The Opening Ceremony Of The 2018 Winter Olympics In South Korea

The awaiting opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics kicked off in Pyeongchang, South Korea, with spectacular performances and memorable moments.

The sister of North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, shook hands with South Korean President Moon Jae-in while they watched an elaborate show of light, sound, and human performance. Its aim: to tell the epic story of Korea — not North, not South, but the entire land.

A huge crowd gathered in the freezing Olympics Stadium in this isolated, mountainous corner of South Korea, as performances displayed the sweep of Korean history and culture.

Members of a delegation from North Korea, part of an extraordinary Olympics partnership between the two Korean rivals, watched from high in the stadium a performance called "The Land of Peace" and as past South Korean athletes paraded a large southern flag.

After a chaotic year of nuclear war threats and nuclear and missile tests from the North, it was a striking visual moment.

In a remarkable display of unity, athletes from North and South Korea marched into the stadium together while Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, watched along with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. The stunning event was capped off with the lighting of the Olympic cauldron. Doing the honors was former figure skater Kim Yuna, who won gold for South Korea in 2010. She received the torch from two members of the women’s hockey team that will feature players from both North and South Korea. Here are some of the most compelling photos from South Korea so far.
