Passion for football in South Korea

Fans in South Korea come out in number to watch and cheer for their fans undeterred by the timings of the games.

    Football fans in South Korea are passionate about the game and their team.

    They came out in number when their team reached the semi-finals of the 2002 edition which was co-hosted by South Korea.

    But even with the 2014 World Cup, when expectations are not quite as high, the fans are out in numbers.
