Following South Korea's loss to Ghana during their recent '2022 World Cup' match, South Korean athlete Song Heung Min began to suffer from hate comments on his personal Instagram.
After the match, Song Heung Min, who captains the South Korean national team, stated, "I don't know what to say...The athletes all suffered, but I'm sorry that we couldn't do anything but deliver this kind of result. To the fans who have been supporting us, I'm filled with regrets." Throughout the game, Son Heung Min wore a face mask to protect his injury following his surgery for an orbital fracture earlier this month. Even with an injury that had not fully completed healing, Son Heung Min did not hesitate to attempt a header shot, touching many fans' hearts.
However, not all South Korean netizens were pleased with the results, and flocked to Son Heung Min's personal Instagram to leave hateful comments toward him. The hate commenters wrote things such as, "Can you screw off from the team captain's position? You have no skills in soccer. Meanwhile, you're playing as if you're some world class. I hope we stop seeing you", "Why are you always crying? It's getting annoying", "Seriously disappointing", "All you do is shoot ads..." and more.
