Do you Know about?

'Chak De' played instead of S Korean National Anthem during Asian Wrestling Championship medal ceremony.

Looks like the popularity of Bollywood music is expanding beyond Sub-Continent and Hollywood. Lately at Asian Wrestling Championship, during medal ceremony, the organizers had faced huge embarrassment by not playing the South Korean National anthem, instead played popular Hindi song.

The Korean who finished first and were waiting for their national anthem to be played were amused when they heard different tune. The organizers realized that it wasn't South Korean national anthem when the lyrics of the Hindi song started. The music was instantly cut off and the Korean participants were escorted off the podium without the national anthem playing ritual.

This was huge embarrassment for organisers because at that time, Chang-Kew Kim, the president of Asian wrestling body, a South Korean national was present during the gaffe. Later, via announcement, the embarrassed organizers apologised.
