Three of the biggest names in Korean soccer in the 2022/23 season have come together in one place.
Kim Min-jae, the “Napoli Iron Pillar,” who is currently in the spotlight for his transfer to Manchester United, Hwang In-beom, recognized as the best midfielder in Europe’s upper mid-tier Grigue 1, and Hwang Hee-chan, who thrilled Korea with his goal against Portugal at last year’s World Cup in Qatar, posed together.
On the 10th, a photo of the three and famous online content creator “O King” was posted on an internet community. The location is believed to be a futsal field in Korea, and in the photo, Kim Min-jae and Hwang Hee-chan are wearing sweatpants and soccer shoes, suggesting that they played a mini-game that day.
Hwang In-beom, on the other hand, is wearing jeans and sneakers, so it’s unlikely he was playing soccer.
The three had impressive performances in the 2022/23 season. In his first season with Napoli in Italy, Kim Min-jae played 35 games, 30 of them full-time, and was at his best as the team’s core defender.
As a result, he helped Napoli win their first title in 33 years (since 1990) and was named the Italian Serie A’s “Best Defender” in a league known for its defensive strength. He is widely expected to join the Premier League this summer, including Manchester United.
Hwang In-bum made 32 regular-season appearances for Greek side Olympiakos, scoring three goals and serving as a pillar of the team in the center of midfield. His passing was particularly good, earning him praise from various media outlets as one of the best midfielders in the Greek top flight. He has been heavily targeted by clubs in the upper echelons of the German Bundesliga.토토사이트
Hwang Hee-chan had a difficult second season in the Premier League, with several injuries and a mid-season trip to South Korea. In 27 appearances, he made 15 of them as a substitute, playing the role of joker. He scored three goals in the Premier League and one against Liverpool in the FA Cup. Most notably, Hwang Hee-chan scored the winning goal against Portugal at the World Cup in Qatar to send South Korea to the round of 16.
Together, the three were born in 1996 and are the centerpiece of the national team. They are known as the “96 Line,” and earlier this year, they made several donations, making them responsible members of Korean society beyond soccer.
