The South Korean national soccer team won the hearts of the nation when they competed in the 2022 FIFA World Cup and advanced to the 16th round for the first time in over a decade.

When they returned to Korea after the 16th round, they were welcomed home as national heroes, with media and fans rallying to applaud the team for their hard work.

While the entire team earned the nation’s pride with their talent and hard work, a few standout players were recognized for their skill, personality, and idol-like visuals.

One of the players who went viral for his talent and handsome looks was player 9, Cho Gue Sung.

Most recently, he rejoined the national soccer team to prepare for their upcoming match against Colombia on March 24.

While comments usually gush over Cho Gue Sung’s visuals, he shocked many with his unrecognizable appearance as netizens reacted to his questionable styling.

Cho Gue Sung had his face partially shielded with a cap and wore a beige utility vest over a baggy long-sleeve shirt. He paired the top with white cargo pants and tennis shoes to complete the look.

Many netizens felt that although the individual pieces he wore were trendy, the combined outfit didn’t suit him well.

Some netizens pointed out that the hat took away from the fashion-forward look the outfit was going for.

  • “This is shocking…”
  • “I hope there is a reason for this?”
  • “I know it’s a trend but did they really have to style him in it… either remove the hat or give him a shirt with a different pattern.”
  • “Just put him in a pair of training sweats.”

Others pointed out that although they may not be fans of the outfit, the soccer star is handsome regardless of what he wears while hilariously questioning if he’s balancing out his good looks with his outfit.

  • “I get what they were going for here, but it just doesn’t work.”
  • “I don’t think he should wear what he wants to wear lol.”
  • “The gods have given him a good face but not so much for a sense of fashion…but it’s better to get a good face.”
  • “Is he doing this to reduce the number of fans he has because he has so many…”
  • “I guess he’s trying to balance things out..imagine if he looked good and had good fashion taste…”

While netizens may have been discussing his outfit, Cho Gue Sung was kindly posing for photos with fans before the training session at the Paju National Football Center as the team prepared for their upcoming match and was all business in interviews about the team and their new coach.
