Park Jae-yong (23) inherited the genealogy of a tall domestic striker from Jeonbuk Hyundai.
Jeonbuk announced on the 20th, “We have recruited Hangzhou Asian Games national team striker Park Jae-yong, who was a member of FC Anyang.” Park Jae-yong took over the number 10 that Cho Kyu-seong used to use. Park Jae-yong left his impression, “I feel burdened by the modifier ‘post Cho Kyu-sung’, but I will prove it with a strong heart.”
Park Jae-yong is a tall striker with a height of 193 cm. Growing up at Suwon Maetan Middle School, Anyang Technical High School, and Incheon National University, he was called up to K League 2 FC Anyang in 2022 and made his professional debut. In his debut season, he made 21 appearances and scored 2 goals. He has scored 6 goals in 18 appearances this season.
Thanks to his brilliant performance this year, he was selected as the final entry for the Hangzhou Asian Games national team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong. After competing with Chun Seong-hun (Incheon United), Lee Ho-jae (Forha Steelers), and Huh Yul (Gwangju FC), he was called by head coach Hwang Seon-hong. Starting with the Hangzhou Asian Games, the possibility of being selected for the A national team is endless.
Jeonbuk has been making good use of tall domestic players like Park Jae-yong. The immediately preceding striker is Cho Kyu-seong (185cm). Like Park Jae-yong, Cho Kyu-seong also moved from K-League 2 FC Anyang to K-League 1 Jeonbuk. Having moved the team to Jeonbuk in early 2020, he was expected to be the ‘second mobile station’. Cho Kyu-sung and Lee Dong-guk played together for one season.
Excluding the period of military service (Gimcheon Sangmu), Cho Kyu-seong spent two and a half seasons in Jeonbuk, playing in 43 K-League matches and scoring 13 goals. Header shooting using high air supremacy, forward pressure with a wide range of activities, and shooting after penetrating the space behind the defense were his strengths. Cho Kyu-sung moved to Mitwillan, Denmark at the beginning of this month and succeeded in advancing to Europe, which he had dreamed of.
There was also Kim Shin-wook (196cm). Kim Shin-wook wore Jeonbuk’s green uniform for three and a half seasons from the 2016 season to mid-2019. As a member of Jeonbuk, he scored 37 goals in 118 league appearances, and in the summer of 2019, he was called by his former mentor Choi Kang-hee, and transferred to Shanghai Sanggang of the Chinese Super League (CSL). He later played for Singapore’s Lion City and now for Hong Kong’s Kitchee SC.
Kim Shin-wook recently appeared on the ‘Do This, Won-hee-hyung’ channel and told me the secret to scoring many goals in Jeonbuk. He said, “Jeonbuk has good side players. Thanks to the good crosses of players like Lee Yong and Kim Jin-soo, there were many goal chances.”
As Kim Shin-wook explains, Jeonbuk is a team that reinforces national team-level side resources every season so that they can make good use of their tall strikers. Currently, Moon Seon-min, Song Min-gyu, Lee Dong-jun, and Han Kyo-won are flanking attackers, while Kim Jin-soo, Jung Woo-jae, Ahn Hyeon-beom, and Choi Chul-soon are active as flank defenders. Stirring from the side and finishing in the center is bound to be natural.
Jeonbuk’s tallest striker in Korea is Lee Dong-guk (187cm). He moved to Jeonbuk in 2009 and kept the Jeonbuk one-top spot for 12 seasons until retiring in the 2020 season. Excluding the two seasons before his retirement, he is a legend who scored in double digits for 10 consecutive years before that. He scored 228 goals in his K-League career, with 164 goals scored in Jeonbuk alone.바카라사이트
In addition to the aforementioned Cho Kyu-seong, Kim Shin-wook, and Lee Dong-gook, various tall strikers took on the role of ending Jeonbuk’s ‘Dakgong’. Jung Sung-hoon (190cm), Edu (184cm), Gustavo (189cm), etc. played as strikers in the 2010-2020s, and in the 2000s, Kim Do-hoon (183cm), Edmilson (184cm), Son Jeong-tak (196cm), and Zecalo (186cm) were active in this spot.
