But Pence drew the greatest reaction for where he did not appear: most pointedly, at a dinner Moon hosted before the opening ceremony.
Some set a North Korean flag on fire before police intervened, and others chanted "Let's tear Kim Jong-un to death!" as they ripped up posters of his portrait.
"We are proud to make the opening ceremony available in more ways than ever before, with our produced primetime NBC show, as well as the live, unedited stream on NBCOlympics.com and including an enhanced version of the NBC Sports app, which viewers can watch at any time beginning (Saturday) morning", said Rick Cordella, executive vice president and general manager, digital media, NBC Sports Group.
Analysts of Korean affairs said that Pence had missed an opportunity.

It has dispatched a delegation of almost 500 people - mostly musicians, dancers, and an all-female cheering squad - and has been pushing its participation as a sign of willingness to work with Seoul, through greater exchanges, to ease what has been a year of very high tensions on the peninsula. She is the sister of United States national hockey player Hannah Brandt. In it, Kim Jong Un highlighted several huge intercontinental ballistic missiles, which were successfully flight tested three times previous year and could reach deep into the US mainland when perfected.
She also plays an important role as an informant for her brother, Gause said.
"That's the face of the Kim family, which wouldn't even flinch when tens of thousands of people died for it", one Twitter user wrote. I have never seen that before.

Speaking on his way home from the Winter Olympics in South Korea, Mr Pence said there was "no daylight" between the two allies on the issue. The website was only normalised at 8am on Saturday, 12 hours later.
After meeting with Moon, the North Korean delegates boarded a bullet train to Gangneung, a coastal city hosting some Olympic events.
Decked out in red tracksuits and woolly hats, North Korea's cheerleaders sang "uri nun, hana da" (we are one) and clapped in flawless unison as local hip hop artists rapped on a stage behind them and K-Pop blared over the loudspeakers in a stark clash of cultures.
