SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Disappointed South Korean fans have expressed their anger toward the national team as it made its return home following an early exit from the World Cup in Brazil.

Local media showed clips of a fan throwing Korean traditional taffy candy at the players who had lined up for a team photo at South Korea's main international airport in Incheon on Monday. The thrower was heard as shouting "eat yeot"; a common curse in South Korea.

Other fans also held up banner designed in funereal style that said "South Korean soccer is dead!!"

South Korea finished last in Group H at the World Cup.

Coach Hong Myung-bo apologized to fans for the team's disappointing World Cup performance.
