    Didnt watch it, but KFA uploaded an official rebuttal and it seems like netizens are criticising the show for being manipulative

    This show is horrible for pressing bias agenda and pushing narratives.

    Would not trust them to report on how smelly their own socks' are at the end of the day.

    having trouble following along without subs but the produced dramatics of the show hurts its credibility for me

    but at the same time, i expect scandalous activity behind the scenes. it's been clear that the management of the KFA is a shitshow and doesn't share the same priorities as fans

    I have no doubt that there is rampant nepotism, favoritism and various shenanigans going on behind the scene at the KFA. But 1. it's prolly like that at most, if not, all sports associations in Korea and 2. I felt that the show had an agenda and for some reason, they were going after Chung although it wasn't clear why they were specifically targeting him.
    If they want him out of the picture, who do they want to replace him? The reason these associations are headed by these rich billionaires is because they often provide unofficial financial support as well as other types of assistance as needed. So if not Chung and Hyundai, who do they want?

    I had to turn it off midway. At first I was mindblown that their source were some users from some internet message board. Then they spent way too much on something about related-party transactions between the KFA and Dream Gyu's sister. It's not even illegal. Not sure what the problem is. I don't see the problem. LOL.

    nigerian korean kid in real madrid youth. born and raised in mallorca spain. already part of spainish fa regional program. nigerian press is on him so im guessing an invite from their fa will be next. according to report real madrid had to fight off competitors to sign him. supposed to be very shy. descriptions of the player based largely on pace, power, and dribbles. not terribly hard to guess what kind of player he is

    I'm guessing he'll pass on the KNT due to the military duty requirements?

    Let's hope he grew up eating kimchi...

    From the article: "Before he moved to the famed Real Madrid Castilla in 2016, Marvin had his development at various clubs sides such as Sporting Ciudad de Palma, Tranmere Rovers, Sporting Ciudad de Palma, La Salle, and Es Jonquet Penya Arrabal."

    Tranmere Rovers??? How do they fit in all this???

    if his mother signed him for a korean passport he can play for korean underage teams free of any obstacles. hed just have to declare to fifa his intentions. to play for korea as an adult (19+) while retaining spanish citizenship hed probably have to forfeit the standard citizenship and have kfa apply for his 특별 귀화. 특별 귀화 allows you to retain your existing citizenship (dual citizen) and as it stands those who naturalize arent subjugated for conscription. standard citizenship will have him in the army as hed considered to be working in korea everytime he plays for the national team. being mixed race or having primary residence elsewhere does not exempt him


    *to play for a national team you need to have the countrys passport + either be born in the country or have a parent/grandparent who was born there

    From a social psych perspective, earlier studies seem to argue that mothers play a larger role in the identity development of multiracial kids than fathers do (Karakidou, 1996), however, more recent research shows that it's not that straightforward at all (Brunsma, 2005). Oh how I wish the former is true though. I'd love to have him play for the NT if he becomes a decent player. Korean society has definitely warmed up to individuals, especially celebrities & athletes, of African heritage, so I hope the fear of "not fitting in" doesn't stop him from joining us. One factor would definitely be distance though. Nigeria is much closer to Spain than Korea is. Shouldn't we start approaching the kid if he's 18?

    I'm pretty sure that's the same way how the Korean Basketball Association got Ricardo Ratliffe (라건아) naturalized. One of the best decisions they ever made.

    But didn't he need to play 5 years in Korea before being eligible?

    Yeah, unfortunately.

    I admire the dude's determination. I remember one of his interviews where he said he could have easily represented Chinese Taipei, Iraq, or the Philippines (?) for the money, but he wanted to play for Korea since Korea was the place that kickstarted his professional basketball career.

    Yea, he’s definitely not a simple mercenary that wanted intl playing time. Watching his interviews, he has love for the country and prides himself in wearing the jersey. Has stated that he hopes to raise his daughter in Korea as well. Really happy to have him on the team. I started watching Korean bball every chance I get because of him.

    No you don't. You need citizenship and demonstration of some connection to that country. A lot of naturalized players use the parent/grandparent thing to satisfy both, but it's not a requirement.

    Government granted passports to numerous naturalized athletes to play for Team Korea at the PyeongChang Games with special naturalization regulation: only requiring minimum of 2 years being spent in Korea. The notable naturalized players from this exceptional case are Matt Dalton, Eric Regan and Mike Testwuide of men's hockey.

    Apparently, Lee Chang Min of Jeju United is responsible for a tragic car accident, from which a 68 year old woman died and 2 other elderly women were injured. Reports say that he crossed the middle line and crashed frontally with the opposite car. The police is investigating the footballer who isn't injured. A similar case to Marcos Alonso.
    This pretty much means the end of his international career.
