Apparently, there weren't any Minas or Elf Girls that popped up in Korea during this year's World Cup as there were in 2002 and 2006, respectively. However, here's a nice photo of model Han Ga-eun (not to be confused with actresses Han go-eun or Han Ga-in) sporting World Cup cheer gear featuring the official t-shirt of the Korean national team's fans.
The shirt amusingly reads "Korea Legend - Begin to 2010" (sic), but even though the message on the shirt isn't quite clear, Ga-eun (23) compliments it more than well enough for me to forgive the questionable grammar.
Funny thing is, it wasn't my intention to do a solo feature on Ga-eun. Although she's very popular, she's just one of many popular Korean models adorning cars at motor shows these days. A friend sent me an e-mail about the Korean fan t-shirts with the "Konglish" wording and I got the idea to do a compilation post of Korean hotties wearing them, but Ga-eun was just one of too few to be found wearing one. However, rather than trash the entry, here's it is and what follows are a few more photos of Ga-in at some of the many events she's appeared at.
