North and South Korea's special collaborative performance has been canceled. 


Earlier, reports stated that North and South Korea are planning to hold a joint concert at Mount Kumgang in North Korea on February 4. Singer BoALee JukJung In, pianist Son Yeol Eum, indie band Red Chair, traditional Korean music artist Yoo Tae Pyeongyang, and an unnamed popular idol group were reportedly invited to perform at the event. 


However, on January 29, Ministry of Unification confirmed that the event has ultimately been canceled.

It's reported North Korea called off the event, blaming the South Korean media for continuously "insulting" the North's sincerity with their participation in the Winter Olympics. 


Meanwhile, the South Korean government called North's call for a cancelation and inability in carrying out the collaborative event "very unfortunate".
