‘Gold Medalist’ Hyun-Seok Hong asked, “Do you know Dr. Hong?” and he replied, “I don’t.”
‘Gold medalist’ Hong Hyun-seok (Gent) has arrived at Paju NFC.
The South Korean national soccer team (ranked 26th in FIFA), coached by Jürgen Klinsmann, will compete in the October A match of the Hana Bank Invitational National Soccer Team Friendlies. The first match will be against Tunisia (ranked 29th in the FIFA rankings) on Friday, October 13 at 8pm at the 안전카지노사이트 Seoul World Cup Stadium. The second match is against Vietnam (ranked 95th in FIFA) on Tuesday, October 17 at 8 p.m. at Suwon World Cup Stadium.
The squad was called up today at Paju NFC. Seventeen players arrived for the first session at 2:00 pm. Hong Hyun-seok, Lee Kang-in (PSG), Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), and Seol Young-woo (Ulsan) returned from the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games where they won gold under Hwang Sun-hong.
In the Hwangsun Hongho, Hong Hyun-seok’s performance for the national team was remarkable. Starting and substituting, center and flank, attacking and defending, he completed all roles with ease. As an ‘unsung hero’ who is willing to do anything, he led his teammates and finally became a ‘superhero’.
The news of Hong’s gold medal was also highlighted in Belgium. “KAA Gent’s Hong Hyun-seok won the Asian Games with South Korea,” the Belgian ‘Bootbal Premier’ wrote. They beat Japan in the final. He will return to Ghent in a month’s time with the gold medal in his pocket.” Most notable is the exemption from military service. “Another important point is that Hong Hyun-seok is exempt from military service, just like Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Kim Min-jae (Munich),” Bootbal Premier pointed out.
The official YouTube channel of the Korea Football Association (KFA), KFATV_Korea National Football Team, highlighted the players’ arrival at Paju NFC. “Inside Cam” asked Hong Hyun-seok about the meme “Do you know Dr. Hong?” recently popularized by comedian Jo Hoon. It’s a nickname that has been given to Hong for his performances with Belgium and the national team. “I don’t,” he replied with a laugh.
During a media interview, Hong said of his Asian Games gold medal, “I feel really good. I couldn’t sleep after the game. I barely slept yesterday, too. I still can’t believe it,” he said, adding, “Coach Hwang Sun-hong has the biggest stake, followed by my brother Seung-ho, the captain. I want to say thank you, and I think I have a little bit of a stake because I played,” he laughed. After returning from Hangzhou, Hong Hyun-seok will rejoin the Klinsmann to prepare for the upcoming matches against Tunisia and Vietnam.
