Having slumped out of the World Cup at the group stages, South Korea flew back home yesterday only to be “greeted” at Incheon International Airport by hordes of disgruntled fans.

In fact the fans were so disgruntled that they pelted the South Korean squad with toffees as they lined up for a quick photo for the assembled press.

Indeed, Korean website Naver have a photo of the confusing scene…


Now, Pies are certainly not claiming to be experts on the matter, but we’ve done a bit of scouting around and apparently the Korean word for toffee, “yot”, is often used as a slightly less offensive synonym for “shit”.

We think you can probably work out the rest for yourselves.

    If only Colombians followed such a tradition…

  2. Neil says:

    says a lot about the “yot” fans they have…

  3. Jarren says:

    Was a mixed bag from the Koreans in the WC. Showed a lot of resilience, but a lot of naivety too.

    Should have beaten Russia in that horrible game I watched a few weeks ago.

    Regardless, what a terrible response from their “fans”.

    Show some respect!

    Between this and the treatment of the incompetent ferry boat employees, Koreans sure do have an interesting way of showing their disapproval of those who let Korea down.

    could be worse, could’ve actually thrown shit at them.
