Lee Yong Dae wink!

There’s a new sports hearthrob in Korea in the person of Lee Yong Dae (이용대), the badminton mixed doubles gold medal winner in the Beijing Olympics that defeated the Indonesian team. He was born on September 11, 1988 and hails from Hwasun in Jeollanamdo (a province in the south).

I didn’t see the whole finals of the badminton mixed doubles but he was featured in a news program last night. Apparently, he’s turned into a sports hearthrob in Korea and girls are going ga-ga over him and his now famous “wink” that was caught on cam after scoring in one of his games.

Aside from his winning an Olympic gold medal, netizens are taking note of his resemblance to Korean celebrities like Lee Seung Gi (이승기), Kim Beom (김범), Jon Jo (존조), and Baek Jong Min (백종민). Check out his website, he’s got lots of pics there.
