Spurs beat a K-League All-Star team 6-3 today in their first game of pre-season.
Eric Dier gave Antonio Conte's side the lead with a long-range belter in a nine-goal thriller in Seoul.
Harry Kane netted on either side of a Son penalty, but it was Son's second that had fans on social media in stitches.
