GANGNEUNG, South Korea – North Korea’s Olympic cheerleaders were forced to abandon a visit to the beach when they were mobbed hundreds of excitable media on Tuesday (Feb 13).

The cheerleaders, dressed in red uniforms with red and white woolly hats, managed a quick walk before hopping back on their bus after they were met by a huge scrum of journalists.

The North’s 229-strong cheering squad, dubbed the “army of beauties”, have drawn much attention since arriving for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics last week.
