북한 태권도 사범팀 서울 공연 The North Korean Taekwondo demonstration team continue their tour across the border. Thousands turned up not just to marvel at their performance, but to show support for a positive step towards reunification.Kwon Jang-ho bring us the highlights. This is not your usual Taekwondo performance. This team is from North Korea and they are performing in Seoul for the first time in 10 years.They were invited by the South Korean taekwondo body, the World Taekwondo Federation, to take part in the opening and closing ceremonies of the World Taekwondo Championships in Muju this week.But between those performances, they have also been invited to perform on stages like this, in the heart of Seoul, alongside their hosts. Over a thousand locals attended the show in Seoul, giving especially boisterous support for the North Korean team and shouting chants for unification."We are one We are one " "We wanted to let them know that we support them and to show that we want unification to come soon. I also wanted to show my daughter, who came with me that, like this, it is possible to get close to North Koreans." "The sight of South and North Korean taekwondo performers sharing a stage together has been a powerful one, giving South Korea hope of further engagement between the two sides. However the North Korean delegation's reaction has been somewhat lukewarm." South Korean President Moon Jae-in has suggested cooperating on further sporting exchanges, most notably for next year's Pyeongchang Olympics. But North Korea's only member of the International Olympic Committee, Chang Ung, who came with the team, has thrown doubt on whether that'll be possible in the time that remains.And on Tuesday evening, he went so far as to say that political issues should not be attempted to be resolved by sport. Seoul have said they're still hoping for a positive response from Pyongyang. In the meantime, the World Taekwondo Federation are also hoping to receive a reciprocal invite to Pyongyang for the North Korean body's World Championships in September.Kwon Jang-Ho, Arirang News.
