풍계리 핵 실험장 폭발 오늘 진행되나?

The journalists covering the shutdown are expected to have arrived at the nuclear test site in Punggye-ri by now... after a 12-hour train ride, a 4-hour bus ride and a 2-hour hike to get there.
They left the eastern city of Wonsan yesterday evening.
But the reporters have no access to the internet or any connection to the outside world, so it's still not known exactly when the dismantling will happen.
South Korea's foreign ministry said Thursday afternoon that it's keeping a close eye on any changes in the area and awaiting possible notifications from the North.
And because the reporters are not connected to the internet, it's expected that they won't be able to send any detailed stories or footage until they get back to their press center in Wonsan, which means a trip back of another 17 hours or so.
