Dressing up as Daegu FC’s Jo Hyun Woo
The resemblance was impeccable. Baek Seung Min’s choice to dress up as Jo grabbed not only the team’s attention, but also Jo’s. “He completely followed my hairstyle” Jo said, amused by the high schooler’s efforts.
He went on to invite the youngster to their home game against Pohang Steelers. “but I will send you a light balloon and a sign in the light of the 3-person relationship! I am waiting for your contact!” Jo said. The player expressed his gratefulness for the younger generation of football fans who looked up to him as their idol.
Jo promised to make the event just as memorable for Baek. “I will send a gift as soon as I get in touch with the student. I would like to invite him, but he is a high school student and he has to play the game so I have to meet him for the time being” he said.
