K-pop fans in Vietnam are the ones who are happiest with this news.
BIGBANG’s Seungri recently uploaded some photos, featuring memorable moments of Vietnam’s national football team Under-23 at 2018 AFC U23 Championship, to congratulate its impressive achievement at the international sports event this year.
After the final game with Uzbekistan in China on January 27, Vietnam U23 wrapped up its journey at 2018 AFC U23 Championship as the runner-up. The achievement was meaningful to the Southeast Asia country as it marked a long-awaited decade since the team won the honorable trophy at the 2008 AFF Championship.
Along with the pictures, BIGBANG’s member sincerely offered his congratulations to Vietnam, as well as expressed his admiration for the team’s head coach Park Hang Seo in both English and Vietnamese.
🇻🇳 I really want to congratulate Vietnamese national soccer team’s second place finish in the AFC U-23 tournament – I would like to let Vietnamese people know that ‘dreams come true.’ This phrase was in the heart of all Korean people during the 2002 World Cup. I am also very proud of Head Coach Mr. Park. You are a true hero! Tôi muốn gửi lời chúc mừng đến đội tuyển u23 Việt Nam vừa đoạt Á quân giải AFC 2018! Tôi muốn gửi đến những người dân Việt Nam từ trái tim tôi rằng “ Giấc mơ đã trở thành hiện thực”, giống như điều người Hàn Quốc đã làm được vào Worldcup 2002. Tôi rất tự hào về Huấn luyện viên Park, ông là người hùng!
In addition, Seungri also uploaded a video onto his Instagram story to show his happiness for Vietnam’s triumph. It is noted that he excited fans by concluding his self-recorded clip with a meaningful sentence: “Việt Nam vô địch”, which means “Vietnam champion”. Besides, the BIGBANG member also promised to visit the country in the near future.
