It seems as if Olympic fever has spread across K-Pop following the start of Tokyo 2020. Idols have been sharing their support for the athletes, songs have been played during the events, and much more! Recently, ASTRO member Cha Eunwoo also seemed to voice his love and support for the Olympics.
In a recent post on an online community site, Eunwoo revealed that, like many, he has been keeping up-to-date with the Olympics. After watching the various events, he even added that he shared that he would like to be an athlete and even compete in the games if he could!
Although he explained that he probably wouldn’t like to be a runner, Eunwoo added that he would definitely return with a medal if he did compete! Although that might seem overconfident, Eunwoo has good reason to think that!
For many, the dream to be at the Olympics might seem a far-fetched dream. Netizens pointed to various times that Eunwoo has proved that he is perfectly capable of being a star athlete!
In particular, during the annual Idol Star Athletics Championships (ISAC), Eunwoo has proved that he can excel at any sport. In 2017, he and the rest of the ASTRO members took first place in the team aerobic gymnastics with a performance based on the film Pirates of the Caribbean.
In 2018, the group took first place in the 4x100m relay against some of the most athletic idol groups in K-Pop!
If that wasn’t enough, despite claiming he didn’t want to enter as a runner, he proved that he could easily win gold in that event beating Turbo‘s Kim Jongkook, aka the “Man of Steel,” in a race during an episode of Master In The House.
With his place rightly with ASTRO in the idol world, there is no denying that Eunwoo would be a great addition to any sports team and would definitely bring home gold from any tournament he is in!
