Hallyu star kwon Sang-woo [Asia Economic Daily]
Hallyu star and avid soccer fan kwon Sang-woo will be cheering on the Korean soccer team, who plays the Argentinians tonight in the 2010 World Cup games, with his son Rookie and other family members.
"I think he was planning to watch tonight's game with friends but I am not sure because he hasn't been feeling well recently", a source close to the actor told Asia Economic Daily over the phone. "For now, I was told that he was going to cheer for the game with his family".
He explained that Kwon "feels happy about watching the games with Rookie, talking and laughing with him", adding that watching the actor so happy with his one-year-old son "makes me envious".
The source also asked that people support Kwon's latest pic "71-Into the Fire", which opened at No. 1 in Korea yesterday by attracting 114,131 viewers, according to statistics released by the Korean Box Office System (KOBIS).
War drama "71-Into the Fire" is based on the true story of 71 student soldiers who fought during the Korean War, which marks its 60th anniversary this month.
Ranked 47th on FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association), the Korean soccer team surprised the world last Saturday by defeating Greece, ranked 17th, 2-0 in their first match of the World Cup.
