This cultural event was part of pre-Winter Olympics ceremonies. The event was to be held in the North Korean territory of Mount Kumgang on February 4th.
This announcement came a week ahead of the Winter Olympics, which will be held in PyeongChang, South Korea from 9 to 25 February.
South Korea has declared the decision ‘very regrettable’ and stressed Pyongyang to fulfil all the commitments.
Earlier this month, the two Koreas had agreed to perform together in the pre-Winter Olympics ceremonies.
