"There are some who would not want to be in the same room together if it wasn't for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics". Other members of the North's high-level delegation will be present for the concert, including the North's ceremonial head of state, Kim Yong-nam.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has been using the Games in his efforts to re-engage with the North and to pave the way for talks over the North's weapons program.

A visit by Moon to the North would enable the first summit between leaders from the two Koreas since 2007, and would mark only the third inter-Korean summit to take place.

The opening ceremony will be broadcasted on NBC Friday night at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. "That is a very odd time, if in fact he is trying to show a warming", Mattis said, referring to Kim Jong Un. In worldwide diplomacy, small gestures can be misunderstood to mean big things.

High-ranking North Korean delegates entered South Korea on a chartered flight Friday before heading to the Pyeongchang Games by train. On Thursday, Kim presided over an extravagant military parade in North Korea.

According to South Korea's Yonghap News Agency, internet-based telecasts were disrupted, and some people who bought tickets online for the opening ceremony said they couldn't print their tickets.
