The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) consented to send a delegation to the 2018 Winter Olympics to be held in Pyeongchang, the Republic of Korea (ROK) next month, after their just-ended inter-Korean dialogue in the truce village of Panmunjom on Jan 9.

Under the agreement, the DPRK will send to the events its national Olympic committee delegation, athletes, cheering squads, performing arts teams, press corps and demonstration teams for taekwondo, the traditional martial art of the two Koreas.

Cheerleading might become an official Olympic sport in the years ahead. Last year the IOC granted it provisional recognition. It won't be a part of the Olympic Games this year, but cheerleaders from various nations will still perform at the opening and closing ceremonies.

Let's take a look at the performances of DPRK cheerleaders on various events.
