The South Korean national soccer team is set to square off against Sweden on Monday at 9 p.m., and Korean fans, or “Red Devils” as they call themselves, are gearing up for the big match.






Fans have already gathered at Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, where the game will take place. As world soccer governing body FIFA holds a fan festival in the city, World Cup fans flood the streets to cheer on their favorite teams. 








Meanwhile, a large outdoor screen was installed at Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul to greet local soccer fans. The first official cheering event is set to begin at 6 p.m. on Monday. According to local media reports, about 25,000 people are expected to gather at the square to cheer on Korea together.
