About 160 South Koreans including veteran singers Cho Yong-pil and Lee Sun-hee and girl group Red Velvet will give two concerts in Pyongyang in early April, according to the Unification Ministry on Tuesday.
The two Koreas issued a joint press release after cross-border talks in the truce village of Panmunjom that day.
The South Koreans will perform in Pyongyang between March 31 and April 3. Other performers include Choi Jin-hee, Yoon Do-hyun, Baek Ji-young, Jung In, Seo-hyun, and Ali.
It will be the first performance by South Korean artists in North Korea in 16 years. Cho, Lee, and Yoon have performed there before. Cho gave a solo performance in August 2005, and Lee performed there in 2003.
Yoon Sang, a singer and record producer, led a South Korean delegation to the talks Tuesday, while Hyon Song-wol, the head of the Samjiyon Orchestra, headed the North Korean delegation.
