Korean Fangirls are Leaving ‘Creepy’ Messages for French Olympic Ski Jumper


A lot of female Korean netizens are apparently going crazy for Jonathan Learoyd, France’s representative for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea; so much so, that some of them even left creepy messages on his social media account.

Some wrote in their comments, as translated by AllKpop: “Burn your passport,” “You can just jump into my heart,” “Jonathan just please stay in Korea,” “Jonathan marry me!!” and “I wanna exchange you for 25 millions [sic] Korean males.”

To those who are saying this is nothing but harmless fangirling, better think again. The dude is legitimately a minor – only 17 years old.

Plese refrain from making comments about burning his passport. It’s overwhelming Jonathan. People from other countries will seriously think we are weird TT,” one comment said.
