PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — While hundreds of millions of the world's people get ready to watch the closing ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics on Sunday, North Koreans are still waiting to see the first event. The lack of news at home is a stark contrast with how North Korea's made-for-the-cameras delegation at the games, replete with hundreds of cheerleaders and even one of the country's most popular singers, has been a big hit with the South Korean media and some of the hottest Internet clickbait of the entire games. North Korea's state-run media has never been especially devoted to covering international news events.
