    Kim wants to go to Altayspor but the club has been persuading him to stay at least until the end of the season.
    Hwang on the other hand, made a big mistake by not taking Trabzonspor's humble renegotiation.
    Trabzonspor has been getting a lot of complaining from their fans for not signing a Korean player after both sides could not agree on contract.
    Turkish people have said Trabzonspor is breaking good relationship between Turkey and Korea and mocking Korea and Turkey exchanging football culture. Trabzonspor was surprised by their fans' reaction so they said "we will accept all the terms that you have asked. Please sign with us", but Hwang made a big big mistake of not signing.
    I mean think about it.
    Trabzonspor is willing to pay Hwang around 500K and let him go after 6 months when MLS season starts and everything else Hwang asked.
    Hwang could either play in Turkey for 6 months until he could negotiate with MLS next year while getting paid decent money OR just sit in home doing nothing without earning nothing.
    He chose the latter.

    How high is the level of play in the Turkish league? What other league is it comparable to?

    UEFA ranks the Turkish League behind Greece, Netherlands and Portugal but ahead of Scotland and Belgium.

    Turkey's league is a lot like Scotland in that there's usually not many teams contesting the title - except that instead of two (Celtic and Rangers) top clubs, it's three (Galatasaray, Fenerbahçe and Besiktas).

    Galatasaray, Fenerbahçe and Besiktas can all usually hang with any club in Europe, but for the most part it's all downhill from there. Still, it's a good mid-level European league where players like Kim and Hwang can gain valuable experience while being able to contest for first-team PT.
