US gold medalist Sierra Schmidt dances to TWICE's 'Cheer Up' at Olympic pre-trials and reveals her K-Pop playlists

AKP STAFF

An American swimmer has gone viral for her K-pop dancing.

During the Olympic pre-trials, media outlets perfectly captured the U.S. gold medalist Sierra Schmidt dancing to TWICE's "Cheer Up"! Even without the music, fans around the world immediately noticed that she was "certainly dancing to K-Pop", and the clip eventually went viral.

She later took to Twitter and shared her Spotify playlist, which was full of K-Pop songs. Netizens noticed that most of the songs were girl group hits, including those by Red Velvet, IOI, GFriend, BLACKPINK, and EVERGLOW

Schmidt also updated her playlist with more Korean songs and dance music. The newly revealed playlist had songs by Stray Kids, ITZY, and GOT7

Netizens commented:

"OMG is she a fan of JYP?"

"There's a lot of girl group songs, I love it"

"There's Girls' Generation's 'Into The New World'...she's KOREAN"

"Are we sure she isn't Korean because there's 'Into The New World' lolol"

"Damn...'Into The New World'...she's real"

"She and I have the same taste haha fast tempo dance songs"

"She makes my heart flutter"

"She must really love girl groups"

"Whoa she dances so well though"

"She's a true fan and so knowledgeable about K-Pop"

nice to see that she listens to music from all groups (coz obviously she's in it for the music).

she's a much better kpop fan than most of today's young kpop fans who miss out on so much good music because they only listen to one group or one label.
