YouTube: Korean Football Shinmum Episode 2
Episode 2 of Korean Football Shinmun is available now. As there was still a lot of talk about Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Korean media it would have been an amiss if episode two didn't look at what was still being said about the five time Ballon d'Or winner's "No Show".
However, too much focus on the Juventus saga detracts from the main reason why this YouTube channel exists - the K League. There were a lot of stories which caught my eye this week that didn't make it into the final edit.
The pick of the bunch were as follows:
Lee Youngjae on how 'Byungsoo Ball' was a factor on his move from Gyeongnam to Gangwon. Best Eleven via Naver: "I liked Kim Byungsoo's style of football".
"Personally, I need to do more to adjust to the team as don't think I am doing enough for the style of football the manager wants...But even though I was at another team, I enjoyed watching Kim Byungsoo's style of football," Lee Youngjae.
FC Seoul's Go Yohan on the difference between 2018 and 2019. In Sports Genius: "As a team or individually there's bound to be a slump. Last year though the whole team was in a slump and it was a really difficult year but this season, not just myself, but the whole team has worked hard to improve. Players are playing with confidence and it's pleasing to see...I do not want to go back to last year," Go Yohan.
SPOTV News via Naver: Ju Sejong: I don't want to move abroad until I've won the ACL with FC Seoul. Ju Sejong is set to return to FC Seoul in September having spent the 2018 and most of the 2018 season at Asan Mugunghwa as part of his mandatory military service. However, Ju has his sights set on continental glory when he returns to Sangam, as opposed to a move abroad.
Goalkeeper Oh Seunghoon on his sudden move from Ulsan Hyundai to Jeju United:
Sports Seoul via Naver: "Ulsan were a club I loved, it'd be nice if we could both do well". Oh Seunghoon was Ulsan's number one goalkeeper until the Horangi brought Kim Seunggyu back from J.League 1 side Vissel Kobe and was then sent to Seogwipo.
