“It’s a pity that senior Cho Gyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai) became so famous. As a fan, he was the only player I wanted to know…”
‘Daegu FC’s new face’ and ‘Cho Kyu-sung’s ardent fan’, Kim Yeong-joon (23), born in 2000, said this with full of regret.
Early last month, Daegu acquired a new striker. It is Kim Young-joon who has built his career step by step in the K4 League. He is quickly melting into cod. From January 2nd to February 3rd, he scored 6 goals, the most in the team, in a practice game held in Daegu’s first field training in Namhae, Gyeongsangnam-do.
Daegu played a total of 10 games and finished the Namhae field training with 10 wins. From the 4th, he will move to Kagoshima, Japan, and start the second field training. Kim Young-jun, whom I recently met, pledged, “I want to continue my momentum in Japan.”
Youngjun Kim is the main character of the ‘success myth’. After passing through K4 and K3, he entered the K League 1 through Daegu.
Kim Young-jun, a native of Maetan Middle School and Maetang High School, once had a hard time with an injury, but started building his career step by step, starting with the 2021 K4 League Pocheon Citizen Soccer Team. He scored 11 points in his first year and helped the team promote to the K3 League, followed by the 2021 K4 League Young Player Award.
In 2022, Kim Young-joon, who boasted steady skills by digesting 28 K3 League games and scoring 12 points, succeeded in entering the K-League 1 in the eyes of Daegu. 메이저사이트
There is a ‘K League star’ that Kim Young-joon wants to meet. It is Cho Kyu-seong, who was the ‘scorer’ last season and scored multiple goals in the 2022 Qatar World Cup group stage match against Ghana.
Cho Kyu-sung, who digested the Qatar World Cup, rose to stardom. Transition to Ghana changed his life. Many European clubs wanted Cho Kyu-sung. In addition, the number of followers on social media accounts soared from 20,000 to 2.87 million.
Kim Young-joon said, “Before the World Cup, even before Cho Kyu-sung became famous, I was a big fan. However, he has become so unapproachably famous these days. He’s honestly, personally, not good at being famous. He was a player that only he wanted to know,” he said shyly.
Why are you a fan of Cho Kyu-sung? Kim Young-joon said, “I know you changed positions once. In the process, he seemed to know how hard he must have worked and how hard he must have been, so he came to support me. He is still a fan even now,” he said forcefully.
Kim Yeongjun is emerging as a ‘flower boy new face’. He shook his head, “I’m never the handsome type,” and emphasized again and again, “I can never follow senior Cho Kyu-sung.”
