About 40 North Korean female cheerleaders,
who had already taken their seats in the stands on the third floor of the stadium,
began singing cheering songs.
The cheering squad wore white hats and white T-shirts with the North Korean flag printed on them,
sang songs and shouted slogans with coordinated movements.
The title of the cheering song revealed by the leader of the North Korean cheering team is ‘Go to Mt. Baekdu.’
This song was released in 2015 by the Moranbong Band,
known as the North Korean version of the girl group.
The lyrics are, ‘I will go to Mt. Baekdu, the hometown of my heart.’
Among North Korea’s so-called ‘revolutionary songs’,
it is rare that it does not contain explicit praise for the supreme leader,
so it is possible that the cheering squad chose it as their stadium cheer song.
On this day, there was a heated cheering competition between North and South Korea throughout the game at the stadium.
In the stands on the first and second floors of the stadium,
about 50 Korean cheerleaders, made up of team officials,
held the Taegeukgi and chanted ‘Republic of Korea’ in a loud voice along with the slogan.
In addition to the 20 or so people in the cheering section for the athletes on the second floor,
the North Korean side also had a large cheering squad sitting in the general audience section on the third floor,
unfurling a large artificial flag and cheering throughout the game,
shouting slogans such as “Win, win, North Korea, win” and “North Korea doing well.”
The North Korean cheering squad even booed Korean players when they made free throws.
In this game, South Korea, led by coach Jeong Seon-min, defeated North Korea 81-62.
