After going with his gut instincts, Lee Gi Kwang’s guess regarding Korea’s first World Cup match turned out to be right.
On June 17’s broadcast of KBS’ Our Neighborhood Variety and Sports, the cast decided to make predictions on the final score in the game between South Korea and Russia in the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
“I think…. It will be 1:1,” said Lee Gi Kwang. When Kang Ho Dong asked why, Lee Gi Kwang just replied that he just has a feeling that the first match will be a tied game.
Announcer Lee Kwang Yong, who was also on the panel, said the same thing, adding that Russia is a very strong team and it will be a very difficult match, which also turned out to be a true statement.
Meanwhile, Korea and Russia tied on June 18 with the score 1:1.
