Olympics South Korean representative, Hwang Sun Woo, recently took first place in the 200m freestyle competition for the heats. He is the first South Korean to reach the final round for the 200m match in nine years.
During the interview, he revealed that he is a fan of BLACKPINK‘s Jennie and ITZY‘s Yeji! When the interviewer commented that he would now be recognized by them due to his impressive achievements, he laughed shyly and expressed that he hoped it would truly happen.
