Cho Gue-sung arrived at the World Cup in Qatar as a mere unknown, but the player’s entry onto the field during the match between Uruguay and South Korea changed everything.
The moment the television camera focused on the player, thousands of messages flooded social networks praising the beauty of the reserve striker for the Korean national team. Soon, a video of the player sitting on the bench in a game for his club, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, spread over the internet, which already has more than 5 million views. The player’s followers on a social network jumped from 45 thousand to more than 700 thousand in a few hours.
Who is Cho Gue-sung, South Korea’s heartthrob top scorer
Cho was top scorer in the K-League, the Korean football league, in the 2022 season, with 17 goals. Jeonbuk Motors, his team, was also champion of the FA Cup, the local cup.
The club from the city of Jeonju plays in one of the stadiums used in the 2002 World Cup and the region is known for its local cuisine. The place is also a well-known tourist destination, home to several festivals throughout the year, including gastronomic, musical, film and other events.
The Jeonbuk World Cup Stadium naturally arouses the interest of tourists who flock to the city, but since Cho Guesung’s appearance in Qatar, the player’s club has received so many requests for visits that it still hasn’t managed to organize itself to receive all the interested people.
The number of schools interested in visiting the stadium has tripled and the name of the stadium, the club and, of course, the player, do not leave the list of most searched terms in the country’s news portals.
Check out some of the photos about the player that received thousands of likes on social networks.
