South Korean YouTube channel ODG has used a Spider-Man: No Way Home press interview to make a young fan’s dream come true, introducing the nine-year-old boy to stars Tom Holland and Zendaya in an adorable video.
Harang Seong was initially told he’d be studying English to practice talking to Spider-Man if he ever met him, before ODG sprung the surprise video call on him. It was big moment for him, considering he dresses as Spider-Man every Halloween and even has Spider-Man bed sheets.
“When the COVID-19 pandemic ends, please come to Korea and meet me,” Harang read from the English letter he had prepared. “Until then I will study English very hard. I wish you all the best, superhero Spider-Man!”
It isn’t entirely clear whether Harang understood that Spider-Man is a fictional character, particularly as he kept referring to Holland as “Mr. Peter Parker” and asked Zendaya what it was like to hang out with Spider-Man. Either way, the cute 10-minute interview definitely made his week.
“In my entire life, for nine whole years, it’s the happiest day,” Harang said after the interview, later doing a happy dance with his mother. “My dream finally came true!”
