Korean Soccer Fans – The Community

Soccer and the World Cup specifically, gives us a communal activity—both in playing and attending a soccer event or watching it on TV as a fan.

When the World Cup was in South Korea, all TVs were tuned to the games when you walked through a neighborhood. When the United States faced South Korea the whole country watched. Really, the whole country stopped during those 90 minutes of play.

We soccer fans and players commune in other contexts as well, but often times we feel like “an individual in a crowd”.

For example, new studies show that even as the Internet binds us in a network, it isolates us as individuals. Don’t get me wrong, the Internet is amazing, but the roar of the crowd connects souls like no video conference or chat room ever could. So get out there and player soccer and get out there watch a soccer game live.

And Korean soccer fans travel to games too. And South Korean’s passion for their team and the game of soccer is only growing.

These are South Korean fans cheering before the game against Switzerland in Hannover, Germany.



The sport of soccer brings us together, and lets us relate to each other in ways we couldn’t otherwise. For example, you can get to know certain aspects of personality from the way a player plays the game.

Is not Ronaldinho’s smile and the joy he plays with infectious? When a great player makes his teammates play better, when he maybe inspires the players around him or her, that makes soccer or any sport an amazing game.
