  • Red Velvet Singer Joy to Skip Historic K-Pop Concert in North Korea

"Spring is Coming" is the title of the performances by the troupe, which come ahead of an inter-Korean summit slated for April 27.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Sunday attended the first concert in Pyongyang for over a decade by South Korean entertainers, including a K-pop girlband, the latest gesture of reconciliation before a rare inter-Korean summit. According to the South Korean news media, several of the stars going on the trip this week, including some in their 60s, will perform North Korean ballads and other songs invoking peace and reunification.

The pool reports cited an unidentified South Korean official as saying that Kim had initially planned to watch the second performance, set for Tuesday, but changed his plan due to a scheduling conflict.

Still, some South Korean performers were evidently deemed too risqué.

Athletes from North and South Korea marched under a unified peninsula flag at the opening ceremony at the Pyongchang Winter Olympics in February and the significant thaw in the inter-Korean relations has led them to set a date for their first summit in more than a decade on April 27.

The South Koreans will perform on Sunday in a theater that holds about 1,500 people, and artists from North and South will perform together in a 10,000-capacity stadium on Tuesday. The deployment of such powerful weaponry during past drills has frequently drawn an angry response from the North.

The group shot to stardom in 2009, making Seohyun one of today's most recognisable K-pop singers.

North Korea requested the show, which was originally scheduled for 5:30 p.m., be delayed one hour at the last minute for the "convenience of more audience", according to the pool report.

Red Velvet will be performing their hit songs "Red Flavor" and "Bad Boy".

Another member, Seulgi, appeared red-eyed as she bid farewell to the audience at the end of the concert, apparently overcome with emotion.

Although almost 300,000 South Korean troops and 24,000 American troops will take part, the drill will be a month shorter than usual and will not involve nuclear submarines.

K-pop legend Cho said: "I will comfortably perform in the North as I do here".

Kim's late father and longtime ruler, Kim Jong-il, was known to be a fan of the 68-year-old Cho.

The stiffened crowd refused to respond to the athletes who asked them to clap their hands to Fire - an intense electro-dance score peppered with rapid-fire rap delivered in both Korean and English.
