The 2018 inter-Korean summit is scheduled to be held on April 27 and it will be shown live all over the world. On April 18, South and North Korean officials held working level talks and agreed to broadcast major events at the summit on live feeds. Also, in addition to denuclearization, a formal peace treaty to end the Korean War has also been brought up as one of the summit agendas, further capturing the attention of the global news audience. Roughly 2,800 local and foreign journalists have registered to cover the summit, which is nearly double the number of press personnel seen during the 2nd inter-Korean summit in 2007, which numbered around 1,400. Amid the high-running interest in the latest meeting, a renewed spotlight has been cast on the two previous summits as well. The most notable change has been the venue, with the third inter-Korean summit being held at the "Peace House" in the Southern side of Panmunjom, as opposed to the North Korean capital of Pyongyang. This would mark the first time a North Korean leader has ever stepped foot on South Korean territory. There are also a number of other key differences between the 2018 inter-Korean summit and the two previous summits in 2000 and 2007, and we'll be exploring those details with our panel of journalists in this week's edition of "Foreign Correspondents".
