A North Korean delegation arrived in South Korea on Sunday to check the venues for its proposed art performances during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics next month. The seven-member team, led by Hyon Song-wol, head of the Samjiyon Orchestra, crossed the inter-Korean transit office at Dorasan train station of the Gyeongui Line at the western border at around 9 a.m. for a two-day trip to the South.    The inspection team then arrived at Seoul Station by bus around 10:22 a.m. and boarded a KTX bullet train bound for Gangneung 260 kilometers east of the capital. The east coast city in Gangwon Province will host some games of the Winter Olympics.  The delegation will check the venues and facilities in Seoul and Gangneung where the North's art troupe will perform and discuss performance schedules and programs with South Korean officials.  The delegation is scheduled to return to North Korea on Monday.   The North plans to send a 140-member art performance group, consisting of an orchestra, singers and dancers, for two concerts - one each in Seoul and Gangneung around the Olympics.  The trip was originally scheduled for Saturday, but the North abruptly canceled it late Friday without giving clear reasons and notified the South the next day that it would send the team on Sunday.
