Last March 25, IVY sent a congratulatory message to the 17-year old Park Tae-hwan, who won the first gold medal in Korea's swimming history at the World Swimming Championships which was held in Melbourne, Australia.
Park Tae-hwan, who made a new Asian record in the 400m freestyle race, is actually IVY's younger brother.
"I knew that he would win the gold medal. My younger brother inspired me because of his perseverance and I am proud of him."
