North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un‘s sister was seen enjoying the Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea sitting right behind U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.

Kim Yo Jong had taken her seat just feet away from the Vice President, behind his wife Karen Pence, after shaking the hand of South Korean President Moon Jae-in as they entered the stadium for the event.

Kim Jong Un’s younger sister is part of a high-level diplomatic delegation led by the North’s ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam, and she is the first member of Pyongyang’s ruling dynasty to set foot in the country since the Korean War.
