North Korea might seriously want to improve relations with its southern neighbor.

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. It kicked off what will be the biggest Winter Olympic Games to date with more than 2,900 athletes from 92 countries competing.

North and South Korea are technically still at war after their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty.

The merged team had to overcome some language barriers.

The North Koreans earlier Saturday invited Moon to visit Pyongyang in what would be the Koreas' third summit talks since their 1945 division.
