South Korean President Moon Jae-in and first lady Kim Jung-sook received the red carpet treatment upon arriving at Pyongyang Sunan International Airport on Tuesday morning.

Dressed in a navy blue two-piece ensemble and matching brooch, the North Korean first lady appeared confident on the runway alongside North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. First lady Kim Jung-sook, in white, also projected an elegant image. 

While Moon and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Jong-un, exchanged cheek-to-cheek hugs, the two first ladies greeted one another with big smiles.

Unlike the previous inter-Korean summit in April, this summit will feature various performing arts activities for the two first ladies to enjoy while the two leaders are engaged in nuclear talks.
