As of writing this article, South Korean swimmer Hwang Sunwoo went on to set an Asian record at the 2020 Summer Olympics. Currently, he is participating in the Olympics, but it seems as though Hwang Sunwoo has won something that is possibly more precious than gold.

Just recently, ITZY's Yeji and BLACKPINK's Jennie, Hwang Sunwoo's favorite K-pop idols, noticed the swimmer and showed their support towards the olympian!

Previously, the Olympic swimmer revealed in a TV interview that he is a huge fan of both BLACKPINK's Jennie and ITZY's Yeji. The interviewer noted, "They might be able to recognize you now." 

Hwang Sunwoo then went on to respond, "I would be really happy if they did."

As of writing this article, three days ago on the 27th of July, Sunwoo got his wish as ITZY's Yeji went on to ITZY's official Instagram account to post a story, cheering him on prior to his 200m freestyle final. 

In the now expired story, ITZY's Yeji shared a photo that had a finger heart and a letter, "Hwang Sunwoo, good luck with the final that's about to take place! I'll be rooting for you too!!! Yeji."

Following this sweet message, Hwang Sunwoo posted a screenshot of his story of ITZY Yeji's post with an emoji and a caption "...." that rendered him speechless and surprised.

Then, the Olympian once again was surprised when on the 29th of July, BLACKPINK's Jennie also showed her support for the athlete by posting a story on her personal Instagram of Hwang Sunwoo swimming alongside the caption, "I'm rooting for you too. Let's go, Hwang Sunwoo!"

Similar to Yeji's post, Hwang Sunwoo once again took a screenshot but this time of Jennie's post, and then posted on his Instagram stories alongside the caption, "My hands are shaking..."

Congratulations to the Olympic swimmer Hwang Sunwoo on not only being an Olympian but also being noticed by his two favorite K-pop idols!
