Three-Lung Park scores big goal!

Park Ji Seong(박지성)or “Three-Lung Park” as he is known in South Korea for his ability to never stop running hard on the field is a national hero in South Korea. He has been a famous person in my 20 questions game I have been playing with my students. It usually takes them about 3 questions to figure it out.

“Is it a man?” “Yes”
“Is he Korean?” “Yes”
“Is he an athlete? “Yes”
“Park Ji Seong!”
Sunday he became a hero to Manchester United fans for his goal that put Man U over their rivals Liverpool to put them back on top of the Champions League.

Not bad for a boy who grew up eating frog soup. “They said it was good for my health to become stronger and I ate anything that would improve my health,” Ji Seong said of his parents.

Ji Seong is an interesting Korean with humble beginnings. Read more about him here.

    I really wouldn't believe everything the sun writes, this is the newspaper that has a UFO story about once a week. That said he is a great player in nearly every Man U match I watch and he is definately getting more recognition in the city of Manchester and England after this goal and the one last week in the champions league.

    However everytime I tell some-one in Korea i'm British, 9 times out of 10 their reply is football quickly followed by Ji Sung Park!
