Kim met Chinese President Xi Jinping soon after the world was stunned by the news of Trump accepting the idea of meeting Kim personally while Yi visited North Korea the week after the Kim-Moon summit.
This has led to a meeting being set up between the US President and NorthKorean leader Kim Jong Un that is scheduled to take place later this year.
"Pyongyang Time" was created as tensions between the authoritarian country and the US grew over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program and global sanctions aimed at dismantling it.
At the meeting, the two leaders are expected to discuss the issue of denuclearization of North Korea.

"And a lot of things have already happened with respect to the hostages". "I had one of the fake news groups this morning, they were saying, 'What do you think President Trump had to do with it?' I'll tell you what, like how about everything".
Japan "will never be able to set foot on (North Korea's) sacred land, even in 100 million years", the paper said in an online commentary. Mr Trump hinted the release of Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim was in the offing.
