Democratic United Party candidate Moon Jae-in and independent contender Ahn Cheol-soo have agreed to a televised debate on Wednesday.
Political analysts say it is likely that an opinion poll will be conducted after their debate to decide who will run against the ruling Saenuri Party's Park Geun-hye.
The decision to hold the debate came after talks over merging their campaigns, which had been suspended for five days, restarted on Monday.
Both Moon and Ahn say they are committed to fielding a single opposition candidate before the candidate registration deadline on Nov. 26.
Meanwhile, Park plans to hold a TV talk program alone on Friday.
