Mamamoo member Solar may have captured the heart of Sevilla FC player Rafa Mir.
Earlier this month, Sevilla FC went to Seoul, South Korea, to participate in a friendly against Tottenham Hotspur, Koreaboo reported.
While in the country, Mir and his teammate Óliver Torres sat down for an interview with Solar for her YouTube series “Just Interview,” during which the 25-year-old soccer player made an unexpected dinner date request to the 31-year-old singer.
When asked what places the two athletes wanted to visit or eat in while they were in South Korea, Mir said that he wanted to go sightseeing.
“I want to try Korean food and look around the temple and cinema. For the best condition [during] the game, we weren’t able to go out since we’re training, but I think we will have the opportunity to hang around on the last day,” Mir said.
Solar went on to ask what else the Spanish-born player wanted to try, but he hesitated to answer at first. After being subjected to teasing from his 27-year-old midfielder teammate, Mir finally told Solar, “I think the best thing to do is to experience Korean food…but with you.”
The cheeky request had Solar laughing, but she was quick to come up with a clever response.
The pop star said that there “wasn’t enough time for her to show them the best places to eat” but promised to treat them the next time the team returns to the country, according to the translation by Koreaboo.
After that, Torres reminded the Mamamoo member about his request for tickets to Psy’s concert as he mentioned earlier in the interview that he wanted to watch the South Korean singer perform live.
“I heard that Psy is having a concert in Seoul. Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ is also famous in Spain, so I want to see his performance,” Torres said, before jokingly adding, “We’re trying to make a deal with the coach if Solar can get 50 tickets.”
Meanwhile, Solar was able to convince Mir and Torres to do the “Honey” dance challenge with her, which was part of her recently released solo album “Face.”
In a video shared by La Liga’s official Instagram account earlier this month, Solar can be seen dancing in a sleeveless lavender top and matching skirt, and the soccer stars joining her.
The video received thousands of comments from fans, who gushed over the unexpected collaboration.
“Only Queen Solar can do the most diverse things,” one wrote.
Another commented, “OK, I didn’t expect this, but it’s funny.”
Sevilla FC arrived in South Korea early in July to prepare for their friendly against Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur, which was organized by La Liga and the Korean streaming service Coupang Play.
The match was held in the Suwon World Cup Stadium Saturday afternoon. Aside from Solar, several other South Korean stars watched the game, including BTS member Park Jimin and former Wanna One member Ha Sung-woon.
