The South Korean National Soccer Team

Year: 2007

What better way to drown your sorrows after a tough loss than a trip to the brothel, right? That's what four members of the South Korean national soccer team thought, anyway, after they were handed an upset loss by Bahrain in the 2007 Asian Cup. Oh, and we should probably mention that they did this the night before the match too. After reports broke out that veteran team members Lee Woon-jae, Kim Sang-sik, Woo Sung-yong and Lee Dong-gook had all taken part in the scandalous activities, the players immediately made public apologies, and took responsiblity for their actions. Lucky for them, the team was able to pull it together and make it out of the group stage of the tournament before falling in the semifinals.
