All that and more, 7:45am on CBBC.

0:00:000:00:01

See ya.

0:00:010:00:07

Morning everyone, Ayshah here.

0:00:120:00:14

First - here at Newsround we are

pretty excited about this one.

0:00:140:00:17

Today is the first official day

of the Winter Olympics!

0:00:170:00:21

This year it's being held

in PyeongChang in South Korea.

0:00:210:00:24

And it's expected to be one

of the coldest games on record -

0:00:240:00:27

with temperatures around -20.

0:00:270:00:30

Athletes from all over the world

will be competing in 15

0:00:300:00:33

different winter sports.

0:00:330:00:37

But how much do you know

about the host country?

0:00:370:00:39

Here's Ricky, who's

been finding out...

0:00:390:00:41

Hello and welcome to South Korea.

0:00:410:00:44

Home of kimchi, K-Pop and now

the 2018 Winter Olympics.

0:00:440:00:48

But how much do you know

about the country?

0:00:480:00:52

We've got some fun

facts to keep you in

0:00:520:00:54

the know.

0:00:540:00:57

Did you know kimchi is one

of the country's popular dishes but

0:01:010:01:03

what on earth is it?

0:01:030:01:05

It's made from spicy pickled

cabbage which has been

0:01:050:01:08

fermented in a jar

for a number of months.

0:01:080:01:10

Sounds a bit weird but it's

actually super tasty.

0:01:100:01:15

Koreans have around

250 different recipes

0:01:150:01:17

for kimchi and they usually

eat it with every meal.

0:01:170:01:25

Did you know that in Korea

you are actually older?

0:01:250:01:30

That's because they count

birthdays a bit differently.

0:01:300:01:36

In Korea you are born

aged one instead of zero

0:01:360:01:38

and on the new year

you gain an extra year

0:01:380:01:40

so if you were born

in

0:01:400:01:42

December by January you'd be two

years old in Korea, even though

0:01:420:01:45

you'd only be a few

days old in the UK.

0:01:450:01:51

Music is a huge part

of Korean culture and one

0:01:510:01:53

of the biggest genres

0:01:530:01:54

is K-Pop, short for Korean pop.

0:01:540:01:56

The music often features big dance

routines and lots of fashionable

0:01:560:02:03

outfit changes, bands like BTS,

Twice, XO and Black Pink are super

0:02:030:02:06

popular in Korea and

around the world and get

0:02:060:02:09

millions of views for

0:02:090:02:11

their videos.

0:02:110:02:15

Pyeongchang is the chosen

location in Korea but this

0:02:150:02:17

year's Olympics but did you know it

also has its own slogan which goes

0:02:170:02:21

'Happy 700 Pyeongchang', that's

because around 84% of the area is

0:02:210:02:23

made up of mountains.

0:02:230:02:26

It sits an average height

of 700 metres above

0:02:260:02:28

sea level.

0:02:280:02:30

This means the country gets

lots of snow which is pretty

0:02:300:02:32

great for winter sports!

0:02:320:02:39

The opening ceremony

is later this morning.

0:02:420:02:43

We'll keep you up to date

with all the best of the action.

0:02:430:02:47

But there's bad news from one

of Team GB's gold medal

0:02:470:02:50

hopefuls this morning.

0:02:500:02:52

British snowboarder Katie Ormerod.

0:02:520:02:55

She's been ruled out of the games

after fracturing her heel.

0:02:550:02:58

She injured herself yesterday.

0:02:580:03:04

Taking to Instagram,

Katie shared a picture of her x-ray.

0:03:040:03:07

She's said she is gutted.

0:03:070:03:09

Get well soon, Katie.

0:03:090:03:11

Better news elsewhere in sport

though, as Serena Williams

0:03:110:03:13

is making her return to tennis.

0:03:130:03:15

And she's said she wants

to get back on top.

0:03:150:03:17

It's been a year since she's

played competitively.

0:03:170:03:19

She took some time out after

the birth of her daughter, Alexis.

0:03:190:03:22

The tennis ace will be part

of the Fed Cup team for the US,

0:03:220:03:25

playing against the Netherlands.

0:03:250:03:28

Your emoji keyboard is about to get

a whole lot bigger!

0:03:290:03:32

Loads of new emojis have been

confirmed and Hayley's been finding

0:03:320:03:34

out what you can look forward to.

0:03:340:03:37

Finally the emoji

I have always wanted.

0:03:370:03:40

Not the llama, not the abacus,

not the microbe, it's the

0:03:400:03:46

superhero emoji.

0:03:460:03:48

I've always wanted to

send my mum that one.

0:03:480:03:56

It's one of more than 150 new emojis

0:03:570:03:59

that will be heading to your phone

or tablet this year.

0:03:590:04:02

Others include a person

with red hair, curly hair,

0:04:020:04:04

bald head, party face,

tooth, leg, loo roll,

0:04:040:04:06

teddy bear, soap, lobster,

hot face, cold face, Peacock and a

0:04:060:04:09

skateboard.

0:04:090:04:12

Now there is no news yet

on the frowning poo emoji which was

0:04:120:04:15

rumoured to be on its way but all

the others will be here sometime

0:04:150:04:19

this year, we just don't

know exactly when yet.

0:04:190:04:22

Finally - it's Friday!

0:04:230:04:24

So perhaps you're planning

to do something fun this

0:04:240:04:27

evening after school.

0:04:270:04:29

If you've not made up your mind yet

why not take inspriation

0:04:290:04:31

from these guys and catch a movie?

0:04:310:04:34

Yes, these insects

are wearing 3D glasses!

0:04:340:04:37

Scientists used beeswax to carefully

attach the tiny specs

0:04:370:04:39

to the little critters

which are called praying mantis.

0:04:390:04:42

They're doing experiments to find

out more about the way the insects

0:04:420:04:45

see, which they hope

will help to develop better robots.

0:04:450:04:51

That's all we've time for right now.

0:04:520:04:54

I'll be back in half an hour.

0:04:540:04:55
