Thousands of reporters have flooded South Korea to report on this historic moment.
The MPC or Main Press Center can hold 3000 media personnel, and over 2,800 have registered to cover the historic event.
This is the first time foreign media has ever come to South Korea to cover an inter-Korean summit.
