North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has agreed to hold summits with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and US President Donald Trump.
During the games, a North Korean art troupe performed in South Korea, and Moon and his wife watched it with visiting senior North Korean officials including Kim Yo Jong, who became the first member of the North's ruling Kim family to visit the South since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Sunday attended the first concert in Pyongyang for over a decade by South Korean entertainers, including a K-pop girlband, the latest gesture of reconciliation before a rare inter-Korean summit.
Seohyun, a female vocalist and actress now with South Korean girl group Girls' Generation, sang a North Korean pop song called "Blue Willow Tree".
The young couple were seen clapping their hands during the two-hour event - also attended by Kim's powerful sister, Kim Yo-jong, and ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam.
Kim proposed that the next one be held in Seoul under the title "Autumn Comes".
The pool reports cited an unidentified South Korean official as saying that Kim had initially planned to watch the second performance, set for Tuesday, but changed his plan due to a scheduling conflict.

One of the band members, Eric Mun, told reporters that they looked at the singers "with eyes like shooting lasers", according to Yonhap News.
Another famous singer, Choi Jin-hee, also performed for the fourth time in the North and sang "Maze of Love" - a pan-peninsula hit and another of the late Kim's favourites.
