Football star Cristiano Ronaldo will visit South Korea

Football star Cristiano Ronaldo will visit South Korea for the first time 11 years, officials here said Tuesday. Korea Tech, a local beauty and home appliance seller, said Ronaldo will visit South Korea on July 25 to promote a Japanese brand fitness product and will have meet and greet events for fans. He is expected to land in South Korea after visiting Japan.

This will be Ronaldo's first trip to South Korea since July 2007, when he came to Seoul for Manchester United's friendly match with FC Seoul. Ronaldo, who is now with Real Madrid, then scored one goal and provided two assists to lead United to a 4-0 win.

The 33-year-old Portuguese also had a chance to visit South Korea in 2009, but he completed his move to Madrid then, and did not travel with United squad.

Ronaldo scored four goals at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, including a hat trick against Spain. Portugal, however, were eliminated in the round of 16.

After this was announced, Seungri started trending because apparently he holds the rights to manage Ronaldo's schedule in Korea lol. They talk about it here, starting at 2:08.

The article is already outdated since he signed with Juventus yesterday.
lol it seems so random that Seungri will manage the schedule of someone from a different country and occupation. Or is he big on football? I don't follow him so it seems a bit out of place.
Either way, I hope he (both of them) does well.

i think he was offered and he took it as investment. i think BB discussed it as one of seungri's random business ventures iirc

I remember during the MADE comeback, Seungri talked about this on one of the verity shows and everyone was just really confused. But it sounded like that is the case - Seungri is Ronaldo's Korean manager lol

Him being trash just makes it seem more likely to me that Seungri charms his pants off and they become random besties.

Watch him pop up speaking Portuguese on his next variety appearance ....
