G-Dragon, Jo Kwon, Jay Park, Tablo Stay up for Korea Vs. Brazil Olympic Soccer Semifinals Match
With the 2012 London Olympics in full swing, it seems everyone is in the Olympic spirit, K-Pop stars included.
With a big Olympic soccer semi-finals match between Korea and Brazil’s soccer team taking place on August 7 (local time) at the Old Trafford, various K-Pop stars took to their SNS to express their excitement.
Jay Park tweeted a confident picture of himself on August 7 as he wrote, “2012 London Olympics Soccer match Korea vs Brazil. Korea fighting! Time is now baby let’s go!”
With the soccer match airing live in Korea in the early morning hours, many stars stayed up late to watch the game, sacrificing sleep and indulging in some not-so-diet-friendly snacks to fuel their hunger and passion.
2AM’s Jo Kwon tweeted a picture of a table full of Korean fried chicken and beer as he wrote, “I’m so sleepy I think I’m going to die… I have to go to China tomorrow too… but I’m going to watch the game!!!! Fighting Korea!!”
Meanwhile, some of the YG Entertainment artists seemed to have come together to watch the game and in true YG fashion, went all out with its snacks.
Big Bang’s G-Dragon tweeted a photo of a table filled with an array of Korean snacks and drinks while writing, “Ready to watch the soccer game. Korea fighting!!!!!”
Tablo also revealed his own picture of the same YG treasure horde of snacks on his instagram.
Unfortunately, despite all the late-night cheering and viewing, Korea’s soccer team came up short as it played hard but ultimately fell 0-3 to Brazil. Brazil and Mexico will next play for the gold medal in the finals while Korea and long-time rivals, Japan, will faceoff for bronze.
