Uruguay vs Corea del Sur Street Celebration

After smashing South Korea, Uruguay was able to enter the World Cup semi-finals leading to a country wide celebration, starting in the streets of Montevideo.

It has been several world cups since Uruguay has entered the semi finals so that made it more enjoyable for the Uruguayans.

Being the only Asian walking along the street parade, I was always asked if I was Korean and telling them 'no' was not enough for them to take a group picture with me. I feel like a celebrity until of course I see a facebook picture of me and a group of people with a caption of "Mejor suerte la próxima vez, coreano dude asiático".
