Although she is a top star with over 1.9 million Instagram followers (as of this article) and fans worldwide, Kim So Yeon revealed that she is also a fan of somebody: soccer player Son Heung Min of the Tottenham Hotspurs.

On July 3, Kim So Yeon posted two photos on her Instagram story. The photos showed the actress hiding her face with a hat and standing in a large crowd.


She mosaic-ed other faces in the picture and tagged Son Heung Min’s Instagram account in the second post, which revealed why she was standing amongst a large crowd; she was waiting for Son Heung Min at the Lotte World Mall in Jamsil, Seoul. The photo showed her standing on her tippy-toes.


It turned out that Son Heung Min attended an opening event for the famous luggage brand TUMI‘s pop-up as a global ambassador. He appeared at the event in a casual denim-on-denim fashion.

He did his signature pose for the fans, too.

Although Kim So Yeon didn’t write anything else while uploading the two photos, fans could tell that she was a fan of the soccer player, and they found her adorable.
