    The final list of South Koreans who will perform in Pyongyang next month has been announced.

    There will be 11 acts taking part in the performances there, including Cho Yong-pil, Lee Sun-hee, Choi Jin-hee, Baek Ji-young, Jung In, Seo-hyeon, Ali and Red Velvet.

    The Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism said Tuesday, "Over 190 people including singers and staff along with a taekwondo demonstration team will perform two concerts in Pyongyang on April 1 and April 3. We are currently in talks with North Korea to work out the details of the performances."

    Rapper Psy, who earned global fame with his megahit "Gangnam Style" and was expected to join until the last minute, will not take part after all.

    North Korea reportedly expressed reservations about Psy's over-the-top performing style.
