Jenny Bae, a Korean violinist, is under the British media spotlight after she recently recorded a brand new version of the classic Manchester United song "Glory Glory Man United."

According to a British media report, the anthem, which was already a hit at the Theatre of Dreams after debut in the Champions League semi-final first-leg against Arsenal, could top the charts across Asia this summer.

The electric violinist Bae Young-ran grew fond of the British soccer club in January when she was invited to Old Trafford Stadium as a guest celebrity at the match between Manchester United and Chelsea.

Bae is a huge United fan and admirer of fellow Korean Park Ji-sung who plays for the soccer team.

Bae, 30, performed during halftime at the game, and her performance fascinated Man U`s Red Devils.

In an interview with British daily newspaper the Daily Star, she expressed her joy to perform at Man U`s home stadium. She added that the feedback after performing at the game was beyond what she expected.

The sexy violinist moved to the United States due to father`s business when she was 12. After graduating Julliard School, she was invited to Jose Carreras Gala, a star-studded concert held in Germany to help leukemia patients in 2006 at the age of 20.
