Following news that ITZY’s Yeji gave Olympic swimmer Hwang Sun Woo a shoutout, BLACKPINK’s Jennie soon cheered him on publicly as well. It was previously reported that Hwang Sun Woo was a huge fan of both Yeji and Jennie.
He took first place in the 200m freestyle competition during the heat rounds at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He is the first South Korean to reach the final round for the 200m match in nine years, ultimately finishing sixth. During an interview, he revealed that he was a fan of both girls. Yeji cheered him on through Instagram, hoping for good results in the finals.
Following Yeji’s shoutout to him on Dear. U Bubble, Jennie also took to Instagram stories to cheer him on. Along with a regram of a post about him by the official Olympics account, she added the caption, “I will be cheering you on too. Athlete Hwang Sun Woo, fighting!”
