A lookalike of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un waves in the stands.

A man dressed to impersonate North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un walked through the crowd of Pyongyang's hand-picked cheer squad at the Olympics - and they looked unimpressed to say the least.

Though it's unclear if this is the same impersonator who crashed the games' opening ceremony, the man was rushed away from the squad, much as the earlier impersonators were shoed away on Friday. 

The cheerleaders looked less than thrilled to see a likeness of Kim before them. The squad is hand-picked for meeting stringent physical requirements, they are unpaid and train for months at a time, and have been imprisoned in the past for talking about the world they see outside of North Korea.
