We begin this afternoon at the main press center for the 2018 Inter-Korean Summit Pyeongyang,... set up at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, and that's where we have our Blue House correspondent Shin Se-min standing by.
Se-min,.. I believe we have the latest on the details of the summit tell us more.

Jiyoon,... we now have a clearer picture of what the three-days would be like for President Moon Jae-in and North Korea's Kim Jong-un,... just less than a day before the president embarks on a trip to the North.
Here's what we know,... during the three-day period,... the leaders of the Koreas will be holding at least 2 summits in the North-- but that also depends on the situations in the North.
President Moon will be taking off tomorrow at 8:40 in the morning to Pyeongyang from Seoul Air Base,... and will land sometime around 10 in the morning.
Upon his arrival,... a welcoming ceremony will be taking place at the airport,... and the leaders will be heading off to their first summit in the North.
And round two of their summit will follow on Wednesday morning of President Moon's trip to the North and the head of the summit preparatory committee Im Jong-seok said that a joint presser is expected right after.
The president, after taking part in at least two rounds of meetings and multiple different events,... will head back home on Thursday morning ,.... though he kept reiterating that the detailed schedule may change-- depending on the situation there.
One last important thing,... Jiyoon, the agenda of the summit.
Let's listen to the presser.

"First is developing inter-Korean relations,... and the most important thing is ensuring the implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration. The second is resuming the talks between Pyeongyang and Washington for a peaceful establishment of their relationship. And lastly deceasing the threat of a war between the Koreas."

Now the top office says it plans on live broadcasting as many events as possible-- so we'll be able to learn them instantaneously.
Again,... Jiyoon all of these schedule,... still unclear until we get closer to the events on the day of it,... as situations in the North may vary depending on the situations there.

Okay so now we have the schedule-- and tell us more about the advance team that's up in the North to ensure the summit runs smoothly. Have we heard anything from them yet?

We last heard from them late Sunday afternoon,...
A team of around 90 officials arrived in Pyeongyang at around 3 PM,.. and have confirmed that the fax transmissions which will be used to communicate with officials here in the South are up and running well.
Though we don't know their detailed schedule for today,... it is widely assumed that the team will be putting the final touches on the upcoming summit, which is now less than a day away.
Once we learn any of the updates from the advanced team in the North,... I'll be sure to bring you the latest Jiyoon.
