Watch: MONSTA X, Jeon Somi, And VIXX’s Leo Run As Torchbearers In Olympic Relay

MONSTA X, former I.O.I member Jeon Somi, and VIXX’s Leo all ran in the Olympic torch relay for the upcoming 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics!

On January 13, the idols served as torchbearers on the first day of the Seoul leg of the Olympic torch relay. MONSTA X reportedly impressed the onlookers with their teamwork, with each of the seven members taking turns carrying the symbolic Olympic flame.

The group later posted photos from the historic occasion on Twitter, writing, “It was an honor to participate together in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics torch relay! We will be cheering hard for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics and the national athletes representing South Korea! Fighting!”

Meanwhile, Jeon Somi enlivened the relay by being her usual bubbly self. The former I.O.I member brightened her leg of the race by dancing and playfully posing for photos as she carried the Olympic torch.

VIXX member Leo was also all smiles as he ran as a torchbearer. The typically reserved idol participated enthusiastically in the relay, even going so far as to jokingly imitate speed skating at one point.

Leo later wrote on Instagram, “It was a moment that I will never be able to forget.”

2AM’s Jeong Jinwoon continued the relay the next day, on January 14. The singer provided a much-needed burst of energy in the cold winter morning, dancing and cheerfully interacting with the onlookers as he ran.
