Haven't seen it reported in Korea so far, maybe there'd be more interest in it if his K-pop singing son said he was going to join him.
Gangwon boss Choi Yun-kyeom has shocked the traditionally conservative world of Korean football by claiming he will jump off the Alpensia stadium naked if his team triumph in the K-league this season.
The bizzare Alpensia stadium in Pyeongchang has been designed as a multi-sports facility for the forthcoming winter olympics and includes a ski jump as well as hosting Gangwon, the local football team. And Choi, a keen winter sports enthusiast and naturist, says he will make the jump if his team bring home the title.
While only making the league through the playoffs last season, the K-league new boys have spent heavily as they look to raise the profile of sports in Pyeongchang, three hours east of capital Seoul. And barmy boss Choi is certainly doing his part with his bonkers pledge.
The K-league outfit currently sit mid-table after three games but this years title race is seen as one of the most open in years with traditional powerhouses struggling.
Jeonbuk have been skating on thin ice for years with their ref bribing antics, budget cuts at Pohang Steelers have left them with a skeleton squad and Suwon Samsung are currently going downhill faster than Franz Klammer.
It’s not the first odd occurence in Korean football. Three years ago Korean footballer Lee Man-in made headlines after revealing that signing for Seongnam had saved his career after a severe case of Enochlophobia left him unable to play in front of a crowd of more than seven people.
While in neighbouring Suwon, Korean legendary footballer Cha Bum, whose son Duri had a brief spell at Celtic, was crowned ‘King' of the republican country by president Lee Myung-Park after he lost a bizarre bet with the Samsung CEO.
So what are the odds of a Korean naked ski jump this November? One Korean football expert suggested that while slim, they were better than seeing a book on Busan I’cons being published this year - A snowball in hells chance?
