Pyongyang rocks to the sound of music

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un attended the first concert in Pyongyang for more than a decade yesterday.

Red Velvet, a K-pop girlband from South Korea were seen as the latest gesture of reconciliation before a rare inter-Korean summit.

The visit, described by many as a cultural charm offensive by the South, came as a diplomatic thaw quickens on the peninsula after months of tensions.

Kim and his wife, a former singer herself, came to watch the show, making him the first leader of the North to attend a concert by South Korean performers.
