On the May 21st episode of MBC’s “We Got Married“, Nichkhun and f(x)’s Victoria attended a baseball game to throw the opening pitch with Victoria as the pitcher and Nichkhun as batter to open the game.
When the Korean national anthem played before the game, Nichkhun – who was nervous about his role as batter – put his hands on his chest and started to sing the anthem. As Nichkhun sang along, Victoria watched with a curious expression. In the end, Nichkhun even sang, “Our country, hurray!” as the subtitles wrote in the message, “Our country… ?”
In a later interview, Nichkhun stated, “It was a situation where two foreigners were opening a baseball game in Korea, I believe it’s a blessing.”
Netizens stated, “How does a foreigner sing the national anthem so well?”, “He has now officially become a Korean person”, and “Proud of Nichkhun.”
Meanwhile, Nichkhun and Victoria shyly shared their first kiss during the baseball game – drawing much attention from viewers.Source: Xports News via Nate Credit: allkpop
