평양서 첫 남북 태권도 합동공연…예술단은 3일 무대 준비
We start with the ongoing inter-Korean diplomacy.
And in another first in this period of warming relations,... athletes from both sides of the border held a joint taekwondo demonstration in Pyongyang on Monday.
And tonight,... South Korea's art troupe will share the stage with North Korean musicians one last time before returning home.
Lee Ji-won with more.
South Korea's team of Taekwondo demonstrators, now in the North,... gave their second and final performance Monday afternoon at the Pyongyang Grand Theater.
It started at 4 p.m.... in front of a North Korean audience of around thousand two hundred people,... including Choe Hwi, the chairman of the North's National Sports Guidance Committee and a number of high-level North Korean taekwondo and sport officials.

First up was South Korea's World Taekwondo team,... with a flashy show about 30 minutes long,... followed by some 100 martial artists from North Korea's International Taekwon-Do Federation for another half an hour.

The highlight of Monday's show was the short but meaningful collaboration by the two sides, which lasted about 2 minutes.
It was their first time to put on a show together in Pyongyang.
Though the moves were simple and basic, the two teams displayed harmony and synchronization, just like they did at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in February. And the North Korean crowd gave them some big cheers.

Meanwhile, South Korean pop musicians in the North were preparing for their next concert scheduled for Tuesday.
Then they'll be performing alongside North Korean musicians, and Monday they were reportedly discussing how to arrange the lineup.
The 190-member South Korean delegation, including the martial artists, will return to Seoul together after Tuesday's concert.
