Swansea City: Ki Sung-Yueng is settling into life at the Liberty
KI Sung-Yueng may not be popular with the postman at the Liberty Stadium — but he is helping to spread the Swansea City name across the globe.
Swansea's £5.5 million summer signing from Celtic has made a promising start to life in the Premier League, producing a couple of star performances already.
And the talented midfielder's arrival has also had an effect on the club's mailbag.
"Both here and in Korea, football fans are very passionate," Ki said.

"I do get a big following from Korea and I receive a lot of mail at the stadium.
"I really appreciate it too, because people take their own time to write me a letter and post it to me.
"I also get a lot of snacks sent from back home — it's part of our culture to do that.
"But I read every single letter. It takes a long time to go through all of the mail, but I make sure not one letter goes unread.
"It's not only me that Korean football fans are interested in, though. I'm asked all the time about the football club, or how my team-mates are doing.
"Danny Graham and Wayne Routledge are writing in Korean on Twitter, so they have a lot of interest from Korea too.
"And a lot of our games are shown in Korea, so there's a great following there."
The signing of Ki has prompted a new wave of South Korean supporters to pop up at the Liberty on matchday.
In the press box, meantime, an army of Asian reporters can be found charting the 23-year-old's every move.
"I saw a lot of Korean fans during my debut against Barnsley at the Liberty, which was great for both me and the club," Ki added.
"Hopefully there will be a big Korean contingent in the away end on Saturday cheering us on to a good result at Manchester City.
"Already I can see that the supporters here are very passionate about the club.
"At home the stadium is full and everyone is making a lot of noise, and even when we are travelling a few hours to other stadiums the supporters are there in numbers and singing our names to help us."
