    Best Moments From the Opening Ceremony in Pyeongchang

    Take a look at some of the most talked about moments from the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic Winter Games Opening Ceremony. (Published Friday, Feb. 9, 2018)

    What to Know

    • Impersonators dressed as United States President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong-un were "shown out by security staff

    • The two photographed by a wire service giving each other a fist bump before getting the boot

    • Kim Yo-jong, Kim Jong-un's younger sister, was on hand for the ceremonies

    The Opening Ceremony of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games was a spectacle to behold, but two notable individuals (or the impersonators, at least) did not get to witness the pageantry, a published report says.

    The two people dressed as United States President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong-un were "shown out by security staff" after arriving at PyeongChang Olympic Stadium, according to a Reuters report

    "We're getting along great," the Kim Jong-un lookalike told Reuters. "We wanted to surprise everyone and bring world peace and then we’re being escorted out by security guards, which I think is really unfair. Doesn’t everyone want peace?

    "Is my sister getting the same treatment?"

    The fake politicians were photographed by a wire service giving each other a fist bump before getting the boot.

    Kim Yo-jong, Kim Jong-un's younger sister, was on hand for the ceremonies. The first immediate member of North Korea's ruling family to visit South Korea since the Korean War in 1953, Kim Yo-jong shook hands with South Korea President Moon Jae-in, watched the ceremonies from a box that also included United States VP Mike Pence, and was granted the honor of officially announcing the start of the 2018 Olympic Games.
