The Republic of Korea (RoK) President Moon Jae-in will cheer on Saturday night (February 10) together with the head of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s Olympic delegation for a joint women's ice hockey team of the two Koreas, the presidential Blue House said.

President Moon will watch the first game of the joint women's ice hockey team between the two Koreas alongside Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly who came to KoK Friday and attended the opening ceremony of the 23rd Winter Olympics on Friday night.

Thomas Bach, president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), will also cheer together with Moon and Kim.
