South Korean President Moon Jae In briefly encountered North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister today at the opening of the winter games in Pyeongchang.

Moon and Kim Yo Jung shook hands at their first encounter during the ceremony. Kim arrived in the country earlier today as part of a delegation led by the North's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam, state news agency Yonhap reports.

She is the only member of the North's ruling family to have ever visited South Korea. The North Korean delegates are scheduled to attend a lunch meeting hosted by Moon on Saturday.
