KIM Jong-Un has met South Korean President Moon Jae-in for a second time as the two leaders battle to salvage peace talks torpedoed by Donald Trump.
The two leaders were pictured warmly embracing in a secluded mountain village near the border, less than 24 hours after Trump pulled the plug on a summit with Kim in Singapore.

South Korean officials say they are "relieved" about the revived talks over the future of Kim's nuclear weapons programme.
It comes as President Trump blasted Kim in an angry letter that declared the historic meeting "will not take place".
In personal letter from the President to the Chairman of the communist state Trump said he would not be going ahead with the meeting.
Trump called the cancellation a “tremendous setback” for peace and denuclearisation.

In the letter addressed to "His Excellency Kim Jong-un", he wrote: "Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long planned meeting."
Trump also made reference to the US's "massive and powerful" nuclear weapons, adding: "Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.
"You talk about you nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never be used."
It is thought Trump may be referring to a verbal broadside launched against his VP Mike Pence by the North Korean vice foreign minister Choe Son-hui in which he was branded "ignorant and stupid".

According to North Korea's central news agency, she said: "We will neither beg the US for dialogue nor take the trouble to persuade them if they do not want to sit together with us."
She added: "I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing out from the mouth of the US vice president."
The day before Trump pulled out of the historic meeting, North Korea carried out the demolition of its Punggye-ri nuclear facility in front of a group of foreign journalists.
