A world-class soccer player recently drew attention for unexpectedly showing his love for soloist Sunmi.
Back on July 3rd, Sunmi published several photos on her Instagram, where the female idol flaunted her stylish fashion sense. In particular she donned a printed T-shirt, torn black hot pants, and long boots that reached her knees.
With such an outfit, Sunmi’s long proportions, which resembles that of a model, captured everyone’s attention.
Notable, however, it is later detected that soccer player Kevin De Bruyne, who is active in the English Premier League (EPL) with Manchester City, liked Sunmi’s post, drawing interest. As Kevin De Bruyne has never liked Sunmi’s photos before, fans couldn’t help but focus on this unexpected interaction.
Upon seeing this surprising “crossover”, netizens left comments such as, “This is unexpected,” “You succeeded in being a fan”, “It’s not a mutual follow, but he liked Sunmi’s photo”, “It must feel amazing,” “She has become a successful fan“, and so on.
In reality, Sunmi is well-known as an ardent fan of Manchester City. She follows De Bruyne on social media.
On the other hand, in October last year, Sunmi received an invitation from Manchester City and visited their home stadium, the Etihad Stadium (also known as the City of Manchester Stadium), where she met De Bruyne. At the time, Sunmi took a photo with De Bruyne while wearing a Manchester City merchandise scarf. De Bruyne stood next to Sunmi with a shy smile.
At the time, Sunmi also attended the 9th round of the 2022-23 EPL season, particularly the match between Manchester City and Manchester United. The game ended with Manchester City’s impressive 6-3 victory. It was on this day that Erling Haaland set a new record as the first player in Premier League history to score a hat-trick in three consecutive home matches.
Sunmi also expressed her gratitude to Manchester City, saying, “Thank you for inviting me. I still can’t believe that I was here.”
