The good news is Pyeongchang, South Korea, which will host the 23rd winter games next month, is on that list which should leave athletes competing far happier than they were among the slushy ice and bare mountains of the Olympics in Sochi, Russia four years ago.

North Korea has yet to comment on the South's offer, which is in the spirit of the original deal and even goes beyond it.

North Korea has agreed to take part in the games in South Korea, and the two countries have agreed to hold more discussions on easing tensions along their border and reopening a military hotline.

"We made various proposals including the fielding of a joint women's ice hockey team and a joint march into the Olympic stadium", South Korea's vice-sports minister Roh Tae Kang said, according to Yonhap.

Kim and Kam would also represent South Korea in the team event, but may have to cede their spot to the North Korean pair of Ryom Tae-ok and Kim Ju-sik should the Koreas agree to field a unified team in figure skating.

Yonhap said South Korea has asked the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Hockey Federation for permission to expand the roster of its women's hockey team, to bring in North Korean players. The North has yet to respond to that offer as well.

He added that Seoul was reaching out to other countries in the hockey competition to explain the situation.
