North Korea to send 230-member cheering squad to 2018 Winter Olympics

Two Koreas also reportedly discussed holding cultural event at Mt. Kumgang, Masikryong ski resort

Correction at 1745 KST, January 18:  The South Korean Ministry of Unification (MOU) said the North Korean squad to the Daegu Universiade Games in 2003 was made up of 303, not 306, participants. This article has been amended to reflect this.

North Korea will send a 230-member cheering squad to next month's PyeongChang Winter Olympics and is seeking to use an overland route for the delegation’s trip south, Seoul's unification ministry said on Wednesday.
