The 140-member Samjiyon Orchestra, led by Hyon Song-wol, head of the all-female Moranbong Band, held a special concert at the National Theater of Korea in Seoul to celebrate the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games.
According to local media reports, Seohyun, dressed in a white dress and matching heels, made a surprise appearance at the grand finale of the concert. She performed “Let’s Meet Again” and “Our Wish Is Unification,” reflecting the two Korea’s yearning for reunification, with a female octet from the North Korean art troupe. The performers hugged each other as the audience gave them a standing ovation, according to reports.
