Hallyu star Jung Il Woo arrived in Brazil to cheer for the Korean national soccer team.
On June 20, Jung Il Woo joined the “Infinity Challenge” cheering team and arrived at the Sao Paulo airport with them.
Despite of the fact that he arrived early in the morning, fans that heard of his arrival went to the airport to greet the hallyu star. Jung Il Woo greeted his fans with a bright smile despite of the long flight from Korea to Brazil.
Also, Jung Il Woo took the time to take pictures with his fans and give them his autograph. Since there were so many fans who came out to see Jung Il Woo, the “Infinity Challenge” staff had to wait for a bit.
Jung Il Woo joined Yoo Jae Suk, HaHa, Son Ye Jin, B1A4 for the “Infinity Challenge” cheer team. They are planning on attending the competition between Korea and Algeria on June 23.
As a hallyu star, Jung Il Woo is not only popular in Brazil but in China, Japan, and Indonesia. Seeing as how so many Brazilian fans came out to see the star, a possibility can be seen for him to raise his popularity in South America.
Meanwhile, starting in July, MBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama, “The Night Watchman,” will be aired where Jung Il Woo will be playing the role of Lee Rin. It takes place during the Joseon Dynasty where he goes on patrol to catch ghosts.
