The Winter Olympics opening ceremony is expected to focus on easing tensions between North Korea and the rest of the world.
Relations between North and South Korea have been becoming more positive in recent months, with the two countries marching under the same flag in tonight’s ceremony.
It’s a drastic change of pace from 2017 where the rouge nation routinely broke international laws with their missile tests.

A North Korean delegation including Kim Jong-Un’s sister Kim Yo-Jong will likely be in attendance.
More than 35,000 spectators will be in attendance and one billion people worldwide are expected to watch the ceremony on television.
Here in Australia, it will be broadcast on Channel 7 at 9:00 pm AEST.
The program for the show hasn’t been released and so far there have been no leaks from the rehearsals.
However, we’ve been drip-fed some hints about the performance and it’s expected to feature magical, childlike fantasy figures.
