North And South Korean Olympic Gymnasts Just Took A Selfie Together And The Internet Is Going Crazy

Lee Eun-Ju is from South Korea and her competitor, Hong Un Jong, is from North Korea. Even though their countries are technically still at war, the athletes came together for a selfie on Monday.

Lee Eun-Ju is just 17 years old while her opponent is already an Olympic champion ( Hong won gold at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing in the women’s vault competition). The two were seen chatting and laughing together as they prepared to compete in the qualification for the artistic women’s gymnastics. Luckily, photographers were there to capture the moment when Lee Eun-Ju held her mobile phone with one hand and formed the peace sign with the other.
