1) Some say that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will still visit Seoul before the year’s end. On Dec. 9, demonstrations both for and against a fourth Moon-Kim summit took place throughout Seoul.

2) A pro-summit event was held at Seoul’s Arko Arts Theater in Jongno on Dec 12.

3) The event boasted young participants performing such pieces as flag and tap dances in order to send a message that they hope the summit be held successfully.

4) The young participants emphasized that the summit’s success would symbolize the start of peace for the Korean Peninsula.

5) Meanwhile, a congregation of individuals opposing Kim’s visit to Seoul met at the Sejong Center Chamber Hall.

6) Members of the opposing party criticized the Baekdu welcoming committee, which was formed to welcome Kim’s visit to Seoul, and requested the visit’s cancellation, saying that Kim has killed millions of North Korean citizens through starvation.

7) Three months have passed since the last summit, which took place in September, but the controversial Seoul summit remains a polarizing topic.
