That was always going to be a monumental task for either Korea, much less a unified team that had only a few weeks of practice together.
Moon met Kim Yo-jong and the North's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam for talks and lunch at the Blue House today.
Pence said his team had not requested a meeting, but that if it did happen, he would continue his message that North Korea must entirely abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile efforts and will remain under pressure until it does so.
During the Olympics' Opening Ceremony, Vice President Mike Pence sat just feet away from Kim Yo Jong, and the country's 90-year-old nominal head of state, Kim Yong Nam. If peace isn't imminent, a summit in Pyongyang between Moon and Kim Jong Un seems better to most than the threats of recent months.

Two years later, he was assigned as a petty officer to a ship that patrolled the North Korean coast, he said. South Korean participants included senior officials Jeong Eui-yong, Jo Myong-gyoon and Im Jong-suk - the chief presidential secretary.
Official organizers for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics are investigating an interference to certain virtual systems in what could have been a cyberattack, Reuters reported Saturday. "We're one people", said one drinker.
Critics say it's unclear whether revived dialogue between the Koreas could lead to immediate breakthrough on the nuclear stalemate when it seems unlikely that the North would be willing to give up its nukes under any deal.
"I am open to any form of meeting, including a summit, if these are necessary to improve inter-Korean relations and resolve the North Korean nuclear issue", Moon told more than 200 reporters at the Blue House in January.
