World Cup fans enchanted by pretty Korean newscaster's smile

25 June 2014 / 2 years 4 months ago

A South Korean newscaster has caught the eye of World Cup fans  -- proving once more that there is much more to see than football at the World Cup.

SBS Anchor Jang Ye Won had flown to Brazil to cover the match between Spain and Chile, but ended up stealing the show herself.

A widely-circulated animated gif image of of Jang wearing a Spain jersey and smiling at the camera during the match has been making the rounds on the Internet.

Jang follows in the footsteps of such popular fans as Paraguay's Larissa Riquelme, a model and actress who became popular in the 2010 tournament.

She had been captured on camera cheering on her team, with her mobile phone tucked in her ample bosom.

Later, as the competition amped up, Riquelme had famously promised to run naked through the streets with her body painted in the colours of Paraguay if they won the World Cup.

Unfortunately for her fans however, Paraguay lost to Spain.
