North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un has attended a South Korean K-Pop concert in Pyongyang, as the two countries prepare to meet following months of high tension.

He's the first North Korean leader to ever attend a performance by a group from South Korea.

Mr Kim was spotted in the crowd of the 'Spring is Coming' show alongside his wife on Sunday (local time), clapping along to the songs by the 11 performers.

After the two-hour concert, attended by hundreds, he went backstage for a meet and greet.

South Korean president Moon Jae-in was not present, however the two leaders are due to hold a summit on the border later this month.

In February, athletes from both countries marched together under a unified peninsula flag at the opening ceremony at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
