1. [+285, -25] It was funny when I was watching it on TV, but it does seem like he knew that it wasn't appropriate timing to be taking the picture which is why he shlyly pulled it out. I think it's worth being considerate enough to understand that was probably excited to be next to Son Heung Min and wanted to remember the moment as best he could. I think had Son Heung Min knew that this was all going on after the match, he definitely would've offered to take a better selca with him. He's world class, after all.

3. [+79, -6] I understand making a mistake like this when you're just in the moment and starstruck. Let's not be too harsh on him. Just let it go.

4. [+39, -2] You can tell he was shy about the angle of the phone but was still afraid to lose the opportunity for a picture. Let's be more understanding for him.

5. [+15, -0] It's not like he shoved the camera in his face. You can tell he was shy with the way he was holding the camera. Winning and losing aside, the world cup is about coming together as a world and communicating and enjoying something together.

1. [+328] I understand he's excited to meet Son Heung Min but... it doesn't seem respectful to hold a camera against someone who's crying

2. [+336] I've watched a lot of soccer in my time and have seen players exchange uniforms at the end of the game but I've never seen a coaching staff come up for selcas like this

3. [+236] Just leave our Son Heung Min alone. What is this inconsideration ใ… ใ…  is he not allowed to be in his emotions for the moment?

4. [+139] I couldn't believe what I was seeing either ใ…กใ…ก

5. [+40] It did seem like the others were aware that it wasn't appropriate judging by how a staff in front of Son Heung Min put down the arm of the staff trying to take the selca.

1. [+1,568] The point of the world cup is not to 'win' but to 'become one'..

2. [+1,178] He must feel so proud to see a player he's coached make it this far

3. [+1,125] What a great scene.. it would've been great game if not for the refs.. It does make me sad but seeing as how our teams never make it past round 16, there must be a limit to our talents.. Anyway, wishing the best for the next game

4. [+518] We may have lost 2:3 but our players did well... I hope they aren't feeling too down on themselves..

5. [+135] I felt so bad watching him yesterday ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ My heart choked up at seeing how hard he was trying all game long ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

1. [+162, -29] His goals were great and deserving of praise but he still has a lot of work to do in terms of improving his speed and talents and such...

2. [+103, -18] When people started going crazy over his looks, everyone was giving him crap about how that wouldn't help in shooting goals. Now that he's got two goals in, people are taking issue with his speed ใ…‹ Seems like there's just a bunch of uglies trying to take him down no matter what he does. Cho Gue Sung, I wish you more success!!

3. [+59, -0] He was the second longest running player on the team. He fought well and displayed great jumping ability in his second goal. I can definitely see him playing center forward in Europe. I wish him the best~

4. [+26, -1] Cho Gue Sung's the best, fighting ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

5. [+23, -1] Even if it's not the big leagues, I hope he does make it onto some mid-tier club~~

1. [+901, -5] He gives off the class of our next future captain

2. [+440, -3] Looks like everyone thought the same as we did in the Uruguay match. The minute he enters the field, the entire vibe just changes and everyone's on fire.

3. [+310, -5] Something about his mindset just tells me that he's going to be huge. Even without the soccer element, there's just something about him that's bursting with charm. What an amazing person.

4. [+269, -2] You can tell he wants this. He played so well. It was a game that showed just how much he wanted to be running on that field. He has a great future ahead of him, fighting!!

5. [+65, -0] We may have lost but I liked how we played. Games like this don't make me as mad as the previous world cups. We lost 2:3 but I know that a lot of our country enjoyed watching it all the same.
