The event was held with 300 fans recruited in advance. Among them, 60 people selected through a lottery were able to participate in the ground fan signing event.

Fans gathered at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium from 9:30 am, an hour before the start of the event. Although it was hot weather with temperatures exceeding 27°C from 10:00 am, fans each brought parasols to avoid the sun and waited for the team.

At 10:30, when the players entered the ground, the fans cheered in unison. After that, I quietly watched the athletes warm up.

The players completed Rondo, a catch-the-ball training, and then proceeded with dribbling training, mini-games, and shooting training in turn. After finishing all of this, they met fans up close in earnest and started signing autographs.

Although the national team lost to Peru on the 16th, despite the sweltering heat in front of the fans, the event was held with a bright face throughout.

The players entered the locker room one by one, but there was one who kept his seat until the end, so it was captain Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min signed autographs for the fans until the very end, and then held an event to distribute personal items such as soccer shoes, T-shirts and socks to fans through a lottery. Including Son Heung-min, Hwang Hee-chan, Na Sang-ho, and Hwang In-beom participated in the event.

At this event, Son Heung-min autographed the towel he used right after training, the soccer shoes he wore in training, and the training suit top and presented them to fans. In particular, the training clothes were taken off and handed over on the spot.

There was a request that embarrassed Son Heung-min, and it was the fans’ request to take off not only the top but also the bottom, that is, the training pants. In response, Son Heung-min laughed out loud, saying, “No pants. I only wore underwear underneath.”

In this day’s training, Son Heung-min’s body seemed light. He also showed good form in the dribbling training that took place after the Rondo training was over. According to the Korea Football Association’s announcement on the 13th, Son Heung-min underwent light sports hernia surgery after the league game ended in late May. Son Heung-min, who has been concentrating on recovery since then, stayed on the bench for 90 minutes against Peru.

On this day, Son Heung-min showed his unique speed in dribbling training. They were divided into two groups and competed for speed, but the group to which Son Heung-min belonged had a good win rate. During this process, Son Heung-min showed his heart to the fans who chanted his name, and joked with his teammates by lightly touching each other.

Meanwhile, Son Heung-min, who met with reporters after the Peru game ended, said, “I have to discuss with the manager and the staff. It’s too bad. Many fans came to Busan. I played in Busan for the first time in four years. My best and favorite play. I had a great desire to show you, but I feel regretful.”
