Opening Hours

Mon - Fri: 7AM - 7PM

Hong Hyun-seok (KAA Hent), who will participate in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, said earlier that he would follow Son Heung-min, a senior member of the national team who has won the gold medal at the Asian Games.

The Asian Games national team, led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong, has been convened in Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do, and has been training since the 13th to the National Football Training Center (NFC) in Paju, Gyeonggi-do, to sweat for the last time ahead of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. After three days of training until the 15th, he will leave for Hangzhou, the battlefield, through Incheon International Airport on the 16th.안전놀이터

Hwang Sun-hong will play the first group match against Kuwait, an ambush in the Middle East, at 8:30 p.m. on the 19th at China’s Jinhwa Stadium, and the second group match against Southeast Asia and Thailand at the same time on the 21st. On the 24th, they will play their last match against Bahrain in the Middle East at the same time. Following the 2014 Incheon Games and the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, the national team will challenge to win gold medals for the third consecutive time.

However, it is unclear whether key player Lee Kang-in will join. Lee Kang-in’s team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) was originally scheduled to give an answer on the 13th, but coach Hwang Sun-hong said, “PSG has not given an answer yet,” adding that the timing of Lee Kang-in’s joining is unclear.

It is unlikely that PSG will be able to transfer Lee Kang-in, but as he is recovering from a thigh injury recently, he plans to carefully check his physical condition and send it. On top of that, conditions related to the transfer of the Asian Cup in January next year need to be adjusted.

The later the joining time is, the heavier the shoulders of Hong Hyun-seok, who is scheduled to join the national team’s midfield with Lee Kang-in, are.

Hong Hyun-seok was called up to the A national team led by Jurgen Klinsmann based on his performance in his team Hent and went on an away trip to England in September. He started against Wales and received Klinsmann’s impression, and joined the Asian Games national team on his way home on the 9th, shortly after the match.

Hong Hyun-seok, who met with reporters at Paju NFC on the 14th, said he received a lot of advice from senior members of the national team Son Heung-min and Hwang Ui-jo, who had won gold medals at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games.

Next is interview with Hong Hyun Suk.

Q: How do you feel before the competition.

“I’m excited soon, and I think I should prepare well.”

  • I’ve been to the A national team. Did the players who won the Asian Games gold medal, such as Son Heung-min and Hwang Ui-jo, give any advice

“My brothers always say that it’s not easy. He said there will be a crisis no matter what during the competition. Whenever that happened, he told me a lot that the players should stick together.”

  • Were you confused in the process of joining the Asian Games team after going to the A national team.

“There is no confusion at all. I’m just so honored to be able to go back and forth between the two teams.”

  • After visiting the A national team, what skills and strengths do you think you have.

“First of all, I think defensive is the most important thing as a central midfielder. I think I showed a good performance in that regard. He is also confident in aggressive passes and attack points.”

  • Coach Klinsmann said among the players who overlap with the A national team, “It will be helpful to join the A national team with good energy.” How is it after you went.

“I think I learned a lot of tempo and defense while training with my brothers. Playing against Wales this time, I thought I was lacking a lot. I thought I should get more together in this tournament.”

  • As a multiplayer, I can play center and side.

“I always think I’m ready wherever I run. I always want to run.”

  • Is there any pressure on people around you saying that you should stand in Lee Kang-in’s position or play the role of Lee Kang-in.

“I’m not exactly burdened. I want to play my own, and I think I just need to do the tasks I have to do, so I don’t have that pressure in particular.”
