But he was non-commital on ferrets and lukewarm on team buses!

Pohang's new Serbian bloke Lazar Veselinovic probably likes kimchi but because he doesn't know the names of Korean food dishes he isn't actually sure what it is he likes, but he likes all of it anyway.

It's not just foreign K-League imports who are quite partial to fermented cabbage, even recently-hospitalised US ambassadors love the stuff too:

'Eating kimchi helps Lippert recover fast'
2015-03-08

Doctors at Yonsei University Severance Hospital said Sunday that U.S. Ambassador to Korea Mark Lippert is recovering fast and may go home as early as Tuesday afternoon.

"Ambassador Lippert feels overwhelmed by the messages of support for him," the embassy's minister-counselor for public affairs, Robert W. Ogburn, said during a press conference. "The ambassador said kimchi is helping him recover."

Stevica Ristic likes to eat doenjang jjigae, but perhaps more importantly he's got a much better idea of what to do during the playing of the Korean national anthem than US basketball players do. Davon Jefferson was sacked by LG Sakers last month for doing stretching exercises during the anthem, no such problems for Suttibo as he knows where his hand should go...

Some of the people in the stand behind aren't even standing up so that's a good effort from him.

It is a problem though, what to do when someone else's anthem is playing. Stand up obviously, but should you sing, hand on the heart? Foreign managers often have this problem at internationals. They made my sister pledge allegiance to the US every morning when she was in high school.

I personally find the whole hand thing stupid, even for your own country, but hey, each to his own. If it is not your country then standing is a decent sign of respect. But who cares what I have to say? I left the Voortrekkers (like scouts) in primary school because the once a month flag raising ceremony annoyed the hell out of me. :smt102
There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

Wasn't Stevie talking about maybe going for citizenship at one stage a few years ago?

eninho was the only one i remembered in recent history but it wouldnt surprised me, he seems ready to stay in korea. molina as well was up for staying in korea yeah?

as for the national anthem, it's just a sign of respect. even if u are in a foreign country, stand up. it absolutely kills me when people cant stand and shut up for an anthem. maybe the bball stretching photo was taken on the last note of the anthem? but not sure on the story there. would like to see a video

thinking back to the tour last year, i think chunnam and maybe pohang? were the only teams to play the anthem before matches. anyone else play them?

I'm pretty sure that was Radoncic. Also, Seongnam's Mota tried to gain citizenship as well.

Seongnam used to, under their old owners. Has that stopped now?

Bucheon's three Brazilians will be featured on KBS programme "My Neighbour Charles", which is bekng broadcast tomorrow (Tuesday) at 7:30pm. Expect lots of japes, hilarity and the chance to see the lesser-spotted Almir, who they've described as a nippy forward.

I wonder what percentage of Brazilians in Korea are footballers. The immigration office should do a country of origin breakdown by profession.

The first line of the wikipedia article on Brazilians in Korea is;
There is a community of Brazilians in South Korea consisting of immigrants (mostly Korean Brazilian returnees) and expatriates (mostly footballers) from Brazil.
