During the winter Olympics in Pyeongchang showed North Korea artists from their own country to occur. After a meeting Tuesday between the two parties sends Seoul more than 150 artists, including K-pop stars, to the northern land, as a gesture of good will.

On march 31, leaving among other things, the worldwide popular girl group Red Velvet, singer Cho Yong-pil and singer Lee Sun-hee to Pyongyang. Cho Yong-pil (68) is seen as one of the most influential figures in Korean pop music. Lee Sun-hee (53) is considered to be one of the most successful and talented singers of the country.

Cho also occurred in 2005 in Pyongyang; the last time that South Korean artists in North Korea occurred.

Producer Yoon Sang, who South Korea represented at the meeting Tuesday, says: “When we are on stage, it becomes difficult to keep our personal feelings about the denuclearisation to make known. Our first task is to bring the same awe to the North Korean public to bring about as our South Korean audiences.”

The artists perform two shows: one in the Ryugyong Chung Ju-yung Gymnasiom and one in the East Pyongyang Grand Theatre. South Korea investigates two locations, from 22 to 24 march in order to ensure that they are suitable for their artists, confirms the ministry.
