The lead singer of a popular North Korean girl band has crossed the border ahead of two performances in South Korea next month. Hyon Song Wol appeared live on South Korean TV as she boarded a train at Seoul that was destined for Gangneung, which will host the Winter Olympics. After the meeting the Koreans will inspect another concert hall where her group will do another live performance. Many South Koreans welcome the move to reduce tensions. They will launch a preolympic cultural event and will train their skiers together.
