North Korean authorities have started the selection process for the country's cheering squad for the upcoming Asian Games that'll take place in South Korea's western port city of Incheon.
Radio Free Asia reports that 150 female college students and 150 performing artists will make up the 300-member cheering squad.
Only women under the age of 26 and over 165 centimeters tall will be considered.
In addition, candidates have to pass the state's physical and background checks, which are conducted by North Korea's state intelligence agency.
Aside from the cheering squad, North Korea said on Friday that it will send a 273-member delegation, including 150 athletes, to the Games which kick off on September 19th.
