    Ki Sung Yong is very unique. His passing and play making skills are very rare in Korea.
    If you don't go too deep in the details, Han Chan Hee (has struggled for the U20 though), Hwang In Beom (is rather a classic playmaker than a deep lying CM) and Kim Jung Min (still too young to judge) come to my mind, but we'll see if any of them will be able to replace Ki one day.
    I don't think that Lee Chang Min is a KSY type of player though. He has developed in the last years and for Jeju, he's more of a box-to-box midfielder who likes to shoot from long distance. I think that maybe he could complement KSY better than KJC does, because LCM can defend better, has a good workrate (tbf KJC has it too) and is more direct (which is KJC's biggest problem with the current KNT style).
    But as I've said before, I think he's too offensive to be Ki's partner CM in the 4-4-2 (just as KJC). Maybe if we play 3-5-2 again, he could be an option.

    KJM is a very talented player and I have a lot of hope on him. He's very mature and seems developed compared to players his age.

    there is no player in the Korean pool that resembles Ki, both in Ki's style and what Ki can do.

    Sangju I think are the first team to survive relegation from the playoff. Sangju-Busan 2nd leg went to PKs but Sangju came out on top. A real devastating one for Busan as they have played well this year and especially with their manager passing away recently...would had love to see them back up in the Classic.

    Hopefully, it will be different than his tenure with Daejeon.

    He could probably outball all the Jeonnam scrubs even at his age.

    Especially considering he's blind in one eye as well.

    Hyun Young-min to retire, cancels the contract extension, and makes a final bow to Jeonnam at the HQ, especially towards Yoo Sang-chul. Retirement ceremony to be held next season at Jeonnam's first game at Home.

    Choi Tae-uk has been retired for a while now. Former Ulsan Hyundai scout and Seoul E-Land coach, currently the manager of Seoul E-Land U-15.

    Choi Tae Uk was such a promising player too alongside Lee Chun Soo but never really lived up to his expectations and upside. Had a long career tho in the K-League.

    I don't even remember Hyun Young Min being a 2002 member, lol. Good to know.

    That's because he barely played/had any minutes for the KNT, and he only played the last few minutes vs Turkey during the 3rd/4th place play-off during the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

    I hope this is not a repost:

    But looking back at the by-gone season. Top 50 goals of the 2017 K-League Classic Season.

    Yeah, one game per week. This week is indeed Pohang vs Ulsan. I wish they would stream more than just 1 match per week... I would love to watch more K League matches live.

    Man Ulsan Hyundai sucks. The defence is terrifying bad. It's so disorganized and slow, Kim Changsoo can't play properly. Kim Yongdae is too old and should retire. Upfront they are toothless. Finally scored a goal in 4th game but it was really scrappy. 4 lost in a row now and at the bottom of the table.
    Pohang was ok, pretty toothless as well but Ulsan's defence really helped. Kang Hyeonmu (u23) has a surprisingly really good distribution. His long passes were on point and started some dangerous plays. He should have done better with the scrappy goal though.
    This game made me realize how important Korea needs to start producing good strikers.

    ulsan has a weak squad. i watch every match i can but there is never any player i look forward to watching. han seungkyu showed a bit of promise last year and i would like to see a little more of him but it will probably just lead to more disappointment
