[World Cup Roundup] Eric Nam, B1A4, 2PM, Big Bang, 2NE1, and More Cheer on Korea Against Algeria
Many people stayed up all night, prepared with fried chicken, beer, and raincoats to cheer on the Korean team in its second game against Algeria in the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
The game started at 4AM (KST), but the festivities had already started even earlier than that with stars updating their SNS accounts with how they are cheering for the team.
Unfortunately, the game ended as a 2:4 loss, but the SNS updates proved no one was pointing fingers, as an outpour of encouragement followed.
