The various expressions of coach Park Hang Seo during World Cup qualifier matches have been depicted in the lovely drawings of a freelance Vietnamese artist.
Phan Nguyen, 39, the artist who create the work of art, said he is impressed with the Korean coach’s working style and the historical achievements Park and his students have attained in recent tournaments.
Being a freelance painter, Phan has shown his love and admiration to the head coach of the Vietnam National Football team by drawing cute caricatures or cartoon photos of him on the coach bench during Vietnam’s matches in the latest World Cup qualifying round.
“I’ve been thinking of creating stickers of coach Park Hang Seo for a long time. It’s not until recently when Vietnam knocked out Indonesia and Malaysia did I gather enough motivations to start drawing,” Phan told Zing.
Most of Phan’s stickers portrait Park’s facial expressions and actions during the match, from brooding to beaming with joy when he jumped to celebrate goals. The round face and glasses of the Korean coach become even more lovely under Phan’s drawings.

It takes Phan around 30 minutes at most to finish a sticker. He often sketches his ideas out on paper or computer before gradually perfecting the details. His sticker collection now has over 10 drawings.
“I spent the longest time devising ideas. Once I have an idea on my mind, it’s quite simple to turn them into drawings because the style is not too complicated,” the young artist added.
Nguyen has been an avid football fan since a small age. He also has his own fan page sharing photos, paintings of Vietnamese and foreign footballers and coaches. Memorable moments of Vietnamese footballers, such as Cong Phuong, Quang Hai, Tuan Anh, are also nicely depicted in Phan’s drawings.

Park was suspended for Vietnam’s last game in Group G against the UAE on June 15. He was not allowed to use any form of communication with the team during the game. He was prohibited to enter the dressing room and appear in the stadium tunnel or technical area, including the area meant for reserve players.
