“He plays for Team K League and he is our (Daegu FC) player. He’s cute and I’m proud of him.”

The friendly match between Team K League and Atletico Madrid (Spain) was held on the 27th of last month. This comment was posted by the Daegu FC social media account after the victory was announced on Team K League social media (SNS). Daegu SNS actively promoted players in various languages, including English, Spanish, and German. The protagonist was Daegu FC’s second-year defender Hwang Jae-won (20).

Hwang joined Daegu ahead of last season (2022) after playing for Suwon FC’s youth team and Hongik University, and from his first year with the club, he established himself and began to build an extraordinary career. In his debut season alone, he scored one goal and provided three assists in 34 league games.

After winning the Young Player of the Month award in May, Hwang was nominated for the Young Player of the Year award at the end of the year. Although he didn’t win the award, Hwang improved the following year. By August, he was a regular starter in 24 of the team’s 25 league games. His sharp crosses, which he delivers every game, are a surefire way for Daegu to attack. He also shines in defense. According to defensive data for K League 1 players released by the Korea Professional Football Association on Aug. 8, Hwang leads the league in total tackles (33).

This was the case again in the match between Team K-League and Atletico. Hwang Jae-won came on as a second-half substitute. While it was the veteran foreign players who were responsible for Team K League’s second-half comeback, it was Hwang Jae-won who made a solid contribution from the back. He threatened Atletico’s defense with sharp crosses. He also made neat tackles and was stable as a defender.

“It was an honor just to be able to play with the players I watched on TV,” Hwang Jae-won said in a phone interview. It was an unforgettable experience.” When asked about playing so many games this season, he said, “The fans and people around me are very worried about me. But I don’t feel as physically challenged as I thought I would. I haven’t had any injuries, and I don’t have any soreness. I’m eating well and recovering well,” he laughed.온라인카지노

Hwang Jae-won will be killing two birds with one stone this season. In September, he will head to China with the Hangzhou Asian Games (AG) soccer team. “I actually couldn’t believe I was selected,” he says. I promised my teammates that we would definitely win a gold medal.” On the team’s goals, he says, “We’re aiming for a top split. The battle for the mid-table is so fierce. We have to be alert every game. We’ve missed some games. We want to make up for it in August.”
