Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors K League 1

South Korean football club Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors: K League 1

Apart from Bayern Munich in Bundesliga or Juventus in Serie A, no team has dominated its league quite like Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in K League 1. Even after losing their top scorer to FC Seoul last year, Jose Morais remains unbeaten as Jose’s side remain unbeaten so far this year.

After winning an unprecedented nine league championships and two AFC Champions League crowns, the Green Warriors are hoping to return to the summit of Korean football.


Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors were left scrambling after Song Bum-keun made his move to Manchester City for free transfer on a free transfer transfer, leaving an empty goalkeeping position behind at Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors. To replace him they turned to former K League 2 standout Kim Jeong-hoon; who has proven an excellent short-term replacement allowing only an average of 1.7 goals per match and has played in all but three matches this season for Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.

Hong Jung-nam has made quite an impression during his brief run as starting midfielder for his club, being top scorer with one goal to his credit despite playing as either right winger or central midfielder. His passing ability is excellent and allows for versatility across various positions on the pitch.

Hong has appeared in all but three games for the club this season and his performances have been generally encouraging, albeit he has made mistakes that one would expect of an inexperienced player. Furthermore, Hong has proven adept at handling crosses with an 88% success rate.

At this club, in addition to two regular goalkeepers and their backup goalkeepers Jeong Min-ki and Kim Joon-hong serve as backup goalkeepers – both are outstanding shot stoppers with Kim Joon-hong being particularly highly-rated after being part of Korea’s U17 national team setup since then and being chosen as primary goalkeeper at last year’s U20 Asian Cup where he made an outstanding impression.

Romanian tactician Petrescu will be keen to see which of his young goalkeepers can successfully replace Song. It would not come as a shock if either succeeded; both have shown they can handle the pressures associated with playing at top-flight Korean clubs. Kim Joon-hong may benefit more due to qualifying for U22 quota than Jeong Min-ki; nevertheless both keepers have enough talent for success at Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors this season and should prove strong forces in South Korean football.


Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors have shown strong form this season, winning all matches they’ve participated in without ever losing one and winning every one of their away matches – winning only 1 out of the 3 total away matches played this term.

Paik Seung-ho of South Korean club Jeonbuk United FC was honored with Korea Professional Football League (KPL) Player of the Month accolade in May for his stellar performances across four matches his team participated in during this month.

The squad features several experienced players. The club boasts a strong core of midfielders and several attacking options up front; notable names among these are Cho Gue-sung, Bismark Adjei-Boateng and Joo Min-kyu as notable attackers.

Cho Gue-sung is an adaptable striker who can play anywhere along the frontline. Strong and quick with both feet, Cho became well known after scoring two headers in Korea’s 3-2 loss against Ghana at the 2018 World Cup. While he played well throughout this tournament at Jeonbuk this year, he struggled to find his form and ultimately decided to join Gimcheon Sangmu for his mandatory military service in 2021.

At Army side FC Anyang, Cho made an impactful first impression and was soon promoted to their first team despite finding it difficult to break into their starting lineup due to such an extensive roster. Soon thereafter he was sent on loan to K League 2 side FC Anyang where he made an immediate impact, scoring 14 goals during his inaugural year and eventually leading them to winning their division title on final day of season!
