    And another Japanese player chose South Korea:


    Madoka Haji had played several matches in National Team in 2017, but her 2018 season was not so good and she lost her place in NT. She's probably eager for a new kind of experience overseas.

    2019 training is underway - the WK-League 2018 finalists played a game/half-game in Japan.

    Back tonight, the WK League 2019, week 1

    [​IMG][​IMG] The first match is a final replay! Incheon v Gyeongju KHNP, it's streaming online very soon (09:45 GMT, 18:45 KST).
    At the same time is another good matchup - the previous 4th v 3rd, Gumi v Suwon, it's live online too.

    As is traditional, media day was a few days ago, live on the web

    Couldn't have put it better myself, gamsahamnida. This year I promise to learn Korean, or at least 3 words from the actual Korean football glossary. And not just the popular 'Konglish' words like heading and shooting, whatever those mean.

    Week 1, that game is worth a look - it really was as fast-paced as a final.

    (Highlights on KFATV Youtube)
    Champions Incheon dropped points at Suwon (0-0 in week 2), then Incheon won 3-0 over lower-table teams Changnyeong, Boeun and Seoul. The first 5 weeks were marked by a high number of draws, but the 2018 finalists Gyeongju won twice.

    A bizarre incident impacted the the 4th v 3rd opening match, Gumi v Suwon, just before half-time. An apparent goal by Choi Yu-ri was disallowed because the previous free-kick had been signalled as a throw-in by the assistant, and the ref had 'misinterpreted' the signal. So, she overturned her decision and the goal.
    (Does that ... make sense?)

    And Boeun v Gumi Sportstoto (week 2) had the biggest attendance I've seen the army club get.

    Highlights
    Hwacheon KSPO 1 - 1 Suwon (week 4)
    화천KSPO vs 수원도시공사

    Don't wanna be negative, but the autogenerated autotranslated English subtitles are getting worse this season. Or better.

    (Nobody really said this, it was crosstalk. The TV commentator and stadium announcer were shouting at the same time. They meant Boeun military academy)

    This reminds me of how Google-translator used to transform Japanese names and family names some years ago, generating such players as "Green Abalone Scraper" (= Midori Isokane) or "Go to Unknown" (= Michi Goto). :laugh:

    Week 6, this has to go down as a shock score:

    Highlights
    Gyeongju KHNP 0 - 2 Boeun
    경주한수원 vs 보은상무
    [​IMG]


    The army club Boeun are rarely winners, but they moved up to 4th by beating the 2018 finalists, Lee Geum-min, Tanaka and Nahi's team Gyeongju. Finally, the military discipline is paying off. Goals: Kim Ji-won (16'), Kim Min-jin (31')

    Suwon are having a good season so far, unbeaten in 2nd place, but mainly draws. (After 6 weeks)
    Incheon 16pts, Suwon 10, Gyeongju KHNP 8, Boeun 8, Hwacheon KSPO 7, Gumi 7, Seoul 4, Changnyeong 2


    Week 7 (in May) was postponed to let Korea's players prepare for their Women's World Cup kickoff on June 7. In fact, the league is on hiatus!

    The WK-League says there are 3 possible dates to restart the season.
    Depending on Korea's World Cup results,

    [​IMG] "Plan 1: June 24, 2019, at 19:00. (When the World Cup qualification is eliminated)"'

    [​IMG] "Plan 2: Thursday, June 27, 2019, 19:00. (When World Cup Round 16 (1st or 2nd place) is eliminated)"

    [​IMG] "Plan 3: To be re-discussed at the World Cup Round of 16"


    Plan 3 is really just, "we haven't planned for that".


    [​IMG] A troubling news story at Gyeongju KHNP. The league has launched a players' survey on sexual abuse - a responsible thing to do, after allegations in women's football in Afghanistan, Colombia and Gabon.

    But the KFA is investigating this because there was a misconduct case at the Gyeongju club in 2018, and a male staff member lost his job in September.

    From the report on SportsW.kr - these were the relevant parts they wrote in Korean. (The autotranslation gave some info but wasn't very clear.)
    앞서 협회는 지난 4월 17일 성추행으로 계약 해지된 경주 한국수력원자력 하금진 전 감독에 최고 수위 징계인 제명 처분을 내린 바 있다.
    하 전 감독은 WK리그 순위 경쟁이 한창이던 지난해 9월 돌연 개인 사정을 이유로 팀의 지휘봉을 내려놓았으나, 이후 하 전 감독의 사퇴 이유가 성폭력에 따른 퇴출로 밝혀지며 논란이 일었다. - (SportsW)

    The story on Gyeongju KHNP is disappointing, I've not seen that before.

    Separately, it is shocking to me that the league doesn't already have a schedule established to work around the WWC. It's almost like they are making it up as they go along.
