He understood the assignment so well.

In the pictures, Lee can be seen playing in the position of a goalie while a Qatari woman tries to kick the ball into the net. When the ball approached him, a very dramatic Lee fell to the ground, unable to stop the goal.

After the disastrous defense, he then proceeded to sulk, lying down with a pouty face on a bench while the woman who scored the goal cheered.

The adorable interaction between the national football player and the woman, supposedly a volunteer, has won the hearts of netizens who couldn’t resist Lee’s charms.
