The North Koreans may not participate in the Olympics yearly, but when they do, they often create a buzz. Much of the country is still shrouded in mystery, so it is only natural for others to want to know about their people. The last time North Korea participated in the Olympics was in 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
They had sent a delegation of athletes to compete. One of their short-track athletes quickly went viral in South Korean media for his handsome good looks.
While the athlete on the left reminded people of soloist Henry Lau, others were enamoured by the good looks of the athlete on the right.
Some even compared him to actor Hyun Bin!
The athlete’s name was revealed to be Kim Byul Sung.
He’s certainly very handsome.
Even in 2022, many agreed that they would love to have him in the South!
- “Hurry and bring him over”
- “F*cking handsome”
- “Why was he born in the North?”
- “That sort of talent…”
- “F*cking handsome.”
- “Wow he looks like Hyun Bin and also Lee Dong Wook. He’s really handsome.”
It’s not the first time an Olympian went viral for his looks! South Korea is all over figure skater Cha Jun Hwan at the moment for his princely visuals. Read more about him below.
