Most Spurs fans know that Son Heung-min is a huge star in his home country of South Korea. After all, they are used to see a healthy contingent of travelling South Koreans supporting the Spurs forward at nearly every home game.

However, it is hard to fathom just how popular the two-time Asian footballer of the year is in his home country. Son, who is certainly one of the best players to ever come out of South Korea, is a national obsession back home.
