South Korean President Moon Jae-in is watching the Trump-Kim summit from the Blue House in Seoul, but he is no less invested in its outcome for not being on site in Singapore.

"I think every South Korean’s attention is on Singapore. I too could not sleep last night," he said during the negotiations Tuesday. "I sincerely hope the summit will succeed," he continued, "and bring to us complete denuclearization, peace, and a new era for South Korea, North Korea, and the United States."
