Dortmund and Tottenham's South Korean players were able to connect through social media on the eve of Thursday's massive Europa League Round of 16 tie between the two.

It started when Son Heung-min recorded a message through Spurs twitter account sending Park Joo-ho his best wishes before Spurs traveled to Dortmund. Son, who signed for Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen this summer, said he hoped the game would be a "Korean Derby".

Park responded through BVB's twitter by saying that he missed Son playing in Germany now that he has moved to England.

Son, who has scored five goals in all competitions this season, has made 47 appearances for the South Korean national team. Park has made 29.

Tottenham's Korean star has scored five goals in six games in his career against Dortmund, and will probably start the match after only playing eight minutes against Arsenal last weekend. Park has only made 11 appearances on the season for Dortmund and hasn't played since he started at Borussia Monchengladbach on January 23rd.

Whether they both play a role or not, it was still adorable to see two countrymen connect like this before a big game.
