"I don't think Trump's off-the-cuff remarks can do more harm than they already have in previous settings, but given his reportedly short temper, a meeting that leaves him frustrated could set a bad mood over the summit proceedings".
Kim, dressed in a dark suit, and Trump, sporting a red tie, talked in a corner of the hotel corridor for a few minutes before they walked along the passage into the meeting room and sat down in front of journalists.
The summit marked the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader. Mr Kim, speaking via a translator, said: "It wasn't easy to come to this point".
Professor John Hajek from the University of Melbourne's School of Languages and Linguistics said the US President was "doing all the talking" and had the "upper hand" when the two met for their historic meeting.
"We both want to do something", Trump said on Tuesday, with Kim sitting at his side, later promising the two would meet again.
North Korean state-run Korean Central News Agency reported that Kim enjoyed the "nocturnal bird's-eye view" from the Marina BaySands "observation platform".
"I feel really great".

Kim Jong Un previously committed to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula in April's Panmunjom Declaration, signed by the North Korean leader and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
The two clasped hands for a long while as they posed for photos in front of a row of USA and North Korean flags.
"North Korea has previously confirmed to us its willingness to denuclearize, and we are eager to see if those words prove honest", Pompeo said. "I truly hope it will be a successful summit that will open a new age for the two Koreas and the United States and bring us complete denuclearisation and peace". The document also made no mention of the global sanctions that have crippled North Korea's economy, for pursuing its nuclear weapons program. "If diplomacy does not move in the right direction. those measures will increase".
He said about half of the cost is for security. "That's necessary and appropriate". The statement comes on the heels of Trump slamming Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as dishonest and weak while instructing his advisors to back out of a joint statement he had agreed to with US allies at the G-7 summit.
