    You mean during the clip, right?


    "'Ah... that is freedom and that is experience'. When Sun-Hong hyung came to embrace me, I began wonder: When i get to be around his age, would i be able to do the same? I normally am someone who doesn't cry much. My tears... they just couldn't stop running"

    His goal ceremony during the Korea vs Poland match was dedicated to his wife. i forget exactly, but i remember reading Hwang Sun-Hong recounting that goal as a present for his wife. He asked her, "What would you want if we win our first match". She replied, "i want a goal"

    He overcame a lot of obstacles and hardships in his personal life through football and his last goal for Korea, that beautiful goal in the Poland match (and his 50th for Korea) was a fitting conclusion to his legacy

    Heo Jung-moo has 'promoted' Hwang from reserve team coach to first team assistant manager for the 2006 season. He did a pretty good job with the reserve team last year, winning the southern league section before losing out to Bucheon (eventual champions) in the playoff semi-finals.

    I am the new Hwang Sun-hong. I will score in the World Cup and overshadow his name. I wish that prominent rookies in the future will be dubbed as the 2nd and 3rd Lee Chun-soo instead of Hwang Sun-hong. I am the greatest
