And US media was fawning all over them and how cheerful they were.
Via NY Post:
Members of the North Korean national cheerleading squad — who have been featured gleefully rooting at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics — are systematically forced to have sex with high-ranking members of Kim Jong Un’s twisted regime, according to a disturbing report.
Behind the scenes, the troupe — dubbed the “Pleasure Squad” by insiders — are forced to perform sex acts on party leaders during their trip to the Olympics, a defector with knowledge of the sexual slavery told Bloomberg News.
“[The] troupe came here and performed with dances and songs, and it might seem like a fancy show on the outside [but] they also have to go to parties and provide sexual services,” said defector Lee So Yeon, a military musician who fled the country in 2008, during Kim Jong Un’s regime.
“They go to the central Politburo party’s events, and have to sleep with the people there, even if they don’t want it,” said Yeon, 42.
She added, “Those sorts of human-rights infringements take place, where women have to follow what they are told to do with their bodies.”
The perky and impeccably dressed cheerleaders are subject to an extreme vetting system based on their looks, family backgrounds and loyalty to the Workers’ Party, according to the outlet.
