The young women have been spotted continuously singing, clapping, and dancing in perfect unison.

They also wore these masks of a “generic good looking man…used similarly to the mask in ‘Talchum’, the Korean traditional mask dance”.

During one of the events they were cheering at, BTS’s “Blood Sweat & Tears” came on and made it look like they were dancing along to the popular K-Pop song.

The traditional chanting paired with artists like Kanye West and Sunmi playing in the background has brought a chuckle or two due to the juxtaposition.

It looks like the cheerleaders are cheering on their athletes with all they’ve got! Even at a hockey game where South Korea lost 8-0 to Switzerland, the cheerleaders didn’t lose their pep.

It’ll be interesting to see what else comes of North Korea and South Korea forming a joint female ice hockey team and marching under a Korean Peninsula flag!
