    Brazilian football players including superstar Neymar of Paris Saint-Germain were spotted enjoying their time in several hotspots in Seoul and suburban areas during their first two days here.

    They arrived in Korea last week for a friendly with the Korean national team later this week.

    After their morning training session in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province last Saturday, they went to Everland in the afternoon and posted a couple of pictures of themselves enjoying various rides at the amusement park on Twitter and Instagram, which have gone viral, garnering instant likes. 

    Then later in the night, they were spotted partying at one of Seoul's hottest nightclubs, with videos showing them posted on Twitter. 
    Earlier they started their Korean tour by visiting Mt. Nam in central Seoul last Friday, just a day after their arrival here. They boarded a cable car to take them up to the tower and took pictures together. 
    "If they just stayed at the hotel, they would likely fall asleep due to jet lag and then have trouble sleeping at night," a source at the Brazil Football Confederation explained. "The purpose of their tour is to help them adapt to the time difference. 
    The friendly between Korea and Brazil is set to be held in Seoul on Thursday and will be broadcast live by TV Chosun.
