Hwang Dae-heon, a member of Korea’s national short-track speed skating team at the Beijing Olympics, had his wish come true. He expressed his gratitude, saying he was cheered on by BLACKPINK Jennie. Earlier, Hwang Dae-heon also expressed his fan sentiment toward Jennie on YouTube.

Jennie has never publicly cheered for Korea’s national team during the Olympics. Personally, it seems that she had left a message of support for Hwang Dae-heon. Hwang Dae-heon has consistently expressed his “fan sentiment” toward Jennie.

Hwang Dae-heon appeared on Kwak Yoon-ki‘s YouTube channel in August last year and replied, “BLACKPINK Jennie,” when Kwak Yoon-ki asked, “Who do you want to be cheered by?” Hwang confessed, “I want to go to BLACKPINK’s concert. I usually listen to BLACKPINK songs a lot,” he said.

Hwang Dae-heon‘s fan sentiment was also known by Lee Jung-soo, a senior short-track speed skater and KBS commentator. When Hwang Dae-heon won the gold medal in the men’s 1,500m short track speed skating on Feb 9th, Lee Jung-soo said, “It is a gold medal worth a cheering from Jennie of BLACKPINK. With Jennie’s support, he will cheer up 200 to 300% and perform well in the men’s relay,” he said.
