‘Who are these boys?’
It’s supposed to be Kim Bum and his friends playing soccer.
You probably trying to find Kim Bum in this picture. Well, i tried too but i can’t spot him.
I’m sure he is among those boys.
Anyway, ever wondering what would our Prince Charming be if he is not in the entertainment industry?
Yes, you are so right. A Soccer player!
Here is the full interview with Kim Bum’s mom with ISPlus.
Kim Bum is gifted in sports and he especially loved to play soccer. Since his elementary school, he often played the pillar role in his school’s soccer team in several inter-school soccer competitions.
Kim Bum would usually be allocated the striker position in the team. Whenever I went to support him, he would always be able to score a beautiful goal, just like what would usually be seen on TV replays. This made me really proud to be his mother.
I remember around that time, Kim Bum once aimed to be a famous footballer. When he was promoted to middle school, he joined the school’s soccer club. For this, his father raised a strong objection, which caused a temporary strain in relationship between both of them.
His father had wished for Kim Bum to concentrate fully on his studies, but if he joined the soccer club, he would definitely not be able to achieve this. However, Kim Bum did not change his stand and will because of his father’s opposition. In his third year, he even became the team captain. But one incident changed everything. In the same year, his team suffered a crushing defeat of 0 to 10 in an inter-school soccer competition. Kim Bum cried very hard after that and vowed not to play soccer anymore. And indeed that was the case after the incident. Looking at that, sometimes I would ask “if he really did like soccer before”.
As can be seen from this, Kim Bum is a person of strong-will. Even if he is temporary obsessed with certain things, he would still be able to get himself of the addiction.
Before he entered the elementary school, he had stayed in Sydney, Australia for about a year at his aunt and grandma’s place. Although he couldn’t speak English initially, he still managed to communicate with other children very naturally. He acquainted a lot of friends over there and his English language was given a great boost while in Australia. I was once worried that since he was enjoying his stay in Australia, what if he is reluctant to return to South Korea.
My worries were unfounded though. When I told him that we were about to return to Korea, he replied “great” without any hesitation. I feel that this showed the maturity level in his thoughts. Although he was extremely popular among the girls, but he did not had a girlfriend. Was that a result of his cool and decisive personality?
Omo…our Bummie had so much hard time when he was small.
Poor Bummie… but it’s alright, you have found your place in our (fans) heart (ow…so cheesy lol).
Never knew he stayed in Sydney before. Is it just a coincidence that i am in Sydney now? (lol no hard feeling girls, am just saying it).
