Many singers have again been stepping forth this year to support the athletes to be competing for Korea at the 2012 London Olympics.

Each singer has chosen different types of music and ways of promotion to support the athletes with their own Olympic songs.

From Psy to Sunny Days, everyone from veteran singers to rookies have been making sure that rooting for the Korean team is even more fun.

Psy already has a few famous cheer songs under his belt, such as Champion and We are the One, and this time around he again made issues by releasing Korea’s official London Olympics cheer song, Korea.

Psy collaborated with the National Gugak Center for the song, and it brings together Gugak (Korean traditional music) with Western rock in a mix colored with Psy’s brand of cheerfulness.

Samsung Electronics also released its London Olympic cheering song Win the Day on July 5, bringing in 48 of Korea’s representative idol group members, including those from SISTAR, 2PM, 4minute and miss A, to sing the song.

2PM also released a separate group song on July 11 titled Share the Beat under the slogan ‘Share the beat, enjoy the thrill.’

Even comedian Yoo Se Yoon’s UV joined in the festivities by releasing its self-penned cheering song Luck to Everyone.

On July 17, the rookie group Sunny Days released its song Glory Korea, showing that rookies couldn’t be left out.

The song’s strong rock sounds, fancy guitar riffs, trendy electronic beats and the members’ vocals are enough to draw crowds up onto their feet to give a shout out to the athletes.

The members of Sunny Days told enews on July 18, “We came to sing this song wishing to be a help not only to the athletes who will compete in the Olympics, but also the Korean people. We hope Korea doesn’t just aim for first place, but for working hard in every moment.”
