DinDin Throws Shade at Paulo Bento
For starters, the TV personality received mixed reactions after throwing shade at Bento and the Korean national team on the SBS radio show last month.
"I didn't get the feeling he regularly watches Korean league,” DinDin stated about Bento.
"I personally think he'll get the hopes up by tying with Uruguay and run afterward,” he added. "I feel like he won't say hi to us at all.”

DinDin even questioned fans about positively believing the country’s national team would make it.
"Let's be honest. We all know we're not going to make it to the rounds of 16,” he predicted. “Why are you saying that we're going to make it? It's so annoying, like, make it make sense."
He also commented that he could already see Bento “giving a side eye.”
South Korea vs. Uruguay at the 2022 FIFA World Cup
When the match began on Thursday, Uruguay and South Korea battled to a scoreless draw, per Fox Sports.
Each team had the chance to break the tie in the last few minutes of the match but failed to do so.
There were 17 combined shots in the game, but only one shot on goal was needed between the two teams.
The Korean national team still has two games happening next week. After its match with Uruguay, it will go against Ghana on Monday, November 28, and Portugal on Friday, December 2.
