북한, 공연일정 선택... 하키팀 25일 파견
Our top story this morning...
North Korea has selected two venues in South Korea for its art performance concerts to celebrate the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
The decision was reached a matter of days after a delegation, led by the country's most famous pop star, inspected numerous different spots in the South.
On the sporting side,... the North says its women ice hockey players will arrive in the South within the next 24 to 48 hours to join up with their South Korean counterparts as they prepare to compete in the same, unified team.
Lee Seung-jae has the details.

After a close inspection of some of the possible concert venues for the North Korean art performance group,... the North Korean delegation led by Hyon Song-wol, the head of the North's Samjiyon Orchestra,... has selected two concert venues to celebrate the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
According to the South Korean unification ministry on Tuesday,... North Korea said its art troupe hopes to perform at the Gangneung Arts Center in Gangneung, a coastal city located about 260 kilometers east of Seoul, and one of the Olympic venues along with PyeongChang,... on February 8th,... and the National Theater of Korea in Seoul on February 11th.
The North added that its delegation,... which includes a 140-member art performance group of orchestra, singers and dancers,... plans to cross the land border into South Korea on February 6th for the concerts,... before returning home on February 12th.
North Korea has also confirmed that it will send a 15-member ice hockey team of twelve players, a head coach and two support personnel to South Korea on Thursday.

The South had proposed that they arrive as soon as possible for training with their South Korean counterparts ahead of competing as a unified team.
With the world's biggest international winter sporting event kicking off in PyeongChang in around a fortnight,... hopes are high that the end result will be a more peaceful peninsula.
