Strange things are occurring at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang in South Korea. First, North and South Korea came out together in unison as “Korea.” To make matters even stranger, North Korea has an all-female cheerleading section. Ther are 230 cheerleaders for their 22 athletes.

They’re a country buying tickets, not an individual. Plus Kim Jong Un is NUTS. He probably threatened another nuclear missile crisis if he didn’t get those tickets.

It’s propaganda at its finest.
It’s amazing what breaking down societal norms and conditioning a people like one would a dog does for coordinated dance routines.

More like a cheer dictatorship.
No surprise as Kim Jong-un wants the World to view everyone else in NK is this happy. Glad these kids are having fun.

Yup. Then he can reference this moment as proof that his people are happy.
By the end of the Olympics there will probably only be 4 of them left … “defecting to the South aint going back there” ???

They could easily say, “Oh. Well, we’re friends with South Korea now so I figured that meant I could move here.”

The cheerleaders are on the same level of creepiness.
