The 2014 Incheon Asian Games, where South Korea won its first gold medal in 28 years after defeating North Korea.
The Jakarta Asian Games, where South Korea won its first back-to-back titles, led by Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae and Hwang Hee-chan.
Tomorrow, the final 22-man roster will be unveiled as the team looks to win a third consecutive title at the Hangzhou Asian Games in September.
The expected mainstays are members of the 2019 Under-20 World Cup runners-up, including Lee Kang-in and Uhm Won-sang, and coach Hwang Sun-hong, who took over two years ago, recently finalized the outline during an exhibition match against China in Hangzhou.
The variable is whether Lee Kang-in, who has moved to Paris Saint-Germain, will be included.

“I have a plan in my head of how I’m going to use him, and I think he’s a lot better than he used to be, and I’m going to guide him to play well and play in his favorite position.”
However, unlike the A-League, the Asian Games do not oblige clubs to loan players out, and the tournament comes so early in the season, when players are still adjusting to a new team, so Paris Saint-Germain would need to agree.
In the past, Ki Sung-yueng missed the Guangzhou Asian Games due to Celtic’s objections, while Son Heung-min played in the Jakarta Asian Games after getting Tottenham’s permission.

“There’s a possibility that he won’t be able to play due to his club or various circumstances, so I’m struggling with those things quite a bit right now, and I have to make a decision sooner or later, so I’m really not sleeping right now.”
As well as Lee, Jung Woo-young, who has moved to Stuttgart, and Hong Hyun-seok, 카지노사이트킴 who plays in the Belgian league, are in similar situations, so there is as much interest in who the wildcard will be as there is in the overseas arrivals.
