First of all, Hwang HC has been great against the likes of Nice, Sociedad, Dortmund, Lazio, etc. Just because he's having a bad form, it doesn't mean he's got no future as an attacker. Now back to the FB thing. He could be more useful if turned a fast paced wing forward, but not as a FB and definitely not as CDM. He's got much more abilities as an attacker than those positions. You're saying he's got no natural offensive instinct, but I disagree with you. His movement and line breaking are great. He can also play one two passes (did it with LSW a few times, mostly Lee made a pass miss). He's also showed some flashes of great passing skills, which mostly can be seen, when Kim Mun Hwan overlaps. He has created a lot of great chances by himself, but unfortunately couldn't score. It would be a waste to ignore these qualities. You're right, he definitely lacks playmaking qualities (compared to LSW), but FWs with these qualities are very rare. Would argue that Son isn't any better in that aspect. Besides that, if we compare him to Cha Duri, his technique and creativity are on another level. Cha needed to get converted, because he had 0 positive aspects as an attacker, but great physical attributes and decent defensive knowhow. Very different situations imo. Most of all, Hwang's defending isn't good either. Cha was regarded as a bad striker because he had no clue how to bring himself in good position. Hwang just lacks finishing skills. I can't defend him for his poor finishing and decision making (passes when he should shoot and shoots when he should pass). However, he's definitely not better suited as a FB than FW. Edit: In short, he's got enough qualities an attacker needs, but lacks the last 10% to make profit from it, which is really frustrating for us viewers.
