French Footballer Paul Pogba Expresses Love for BTS and K-Pop During His First Visit to Korea
Paul Pogba of Manchester United F.C. recently visited Korea for the first time and attended the Adidas Base event in Yongsan, Seoul.
During the interview, announcer Bae Sung Jae asked Paul Pogba if he knew Lee Kang In of Valencia CF who’s currently playing in the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup to which he replied, “I don’t know him, but I’ll get to know him during the finals.”
He then caught everyone off guard by adding, “I know BTS though.”
In a follow-up talk show, one fan asked him, “What would you have done if you didn’t become a soccer player?” And he responded, “I love music and dance. If I didn’t become a soccer player, I would have become a singer or a K-Pop dancer.”
Paul Pogba then said, “Among K-Pop singers, I know BTS. But I can’t sing it for you right now because I’m bad at singing” which made the crowd burst into laughter and love him even more than they did before.
