The Korean superstar’s big heart for fans makes her the gold standard
Kim Yeon Koung proved herself as one of the biggest Korean sports stars as many fans attended her first fan meeting called Bakery YoungKoungDang on May 20.
Kim was so moved that she wrote a heartfelt message on social media to her fans, paying tribute to their support throughout her long and successful career.
“My volleyball career lasted so long thanks to the endless love of my fans. I am grateful that this year I had a chance to give my fans a little surprise. It was a significant opportunity to reciprocate that love. I am sincerely grateful to everyone who came,” Kim wrote on Instagram.
The one in a billion star interacted with her fans, even dancing and singing a song for them. At one point in the fan-meeting show, the superstar was holding back tears, possibly recognizing how her career had taken off and how successful she had been in front of the same people sitting in the audience.
In Korea, Kim receives the same recognition and attention that she receives for K-Drama actors and K-Pop idols. And when she competes, the whole nation stands behind her and cheers her on.
Kim is a sports icon in his country. In some popular K-Drama series, her name is easily mentioned when the dialogue is about the best athletes in the country. She even appeared on variety shows with the country’s top celebrities. In 2021, while she was participating in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, BTS’s RM mentioned Kim’s name to express support for the team. If that’s not fame, we don’t know what is.
What is most impressive is that despite her incredible success, she remains modest. This event where Kim puts her fans first is a testament to her being the gold standard for volleyball stars.
