Another star is excited by the emergence of “New Face Born in 2002.” He is the best player of Ulsan HD. He made his debut goal as a professional player, promoting his value.

Sports Seoul selected Choi Kang-min in the 10th round of the “Hana Bank K League 1 2024” “Player of the Round (POTR).”

In the 10th round of the “Hana Bank K League 1 2024” against Daegu FC at DGB Daegu Bank Park on the 1st, he replaced Lee Chung-yong as a side midfielder in the 32nd minute of the second half when the team faced 1-1 and made an accident in five minutes. When Seol Young-woo’s low cross from the right side flowed to the left of the goal, he quickly rushed in and connected it to the winning shot leading to a 2-1 victory.

Originally from Hyundai High School, an under-18 team in Ulsan, he joined Casa Pia in the second division of Portugal in the summer of 2021 and sought to make an adult debut in Europe. However, he only played in friendly matches that summer, but failed to appear in official matches. A year later, he returned to Korea and went to Daegu Art University and play in the U-League.

Then, ahead of this season, he joined the main league team as the preferred designation for Ulsan. He made his professional debut in Ulsan. Kang Yoon-gu and Jang Si-young, who are the same age as him, made their debut in the main league early on. Kang made his debut in 2021 and played 43 professional games throughout his lease on the Busan I-Park in the K League 2. Jang was one step ahead of the team by playing 10 games (one goal) last year.

Choi Kang-min was later than them, but the Ulsan coaches were paying attention to his talent. He also called up and trained in the first team last year. It was during the winter training camp in January and February that Hong Myung-bo properly drew the attention of the coach. At that time, Ulsan had difficulty in properly training and warm-up matches as a number of resources were mobilized to national teams at various levels. Naturally, Choi Kang-min had the opportunity, and he flexibly played various positions such as central midfielder and fullback with good skills. In addition, he played all four quarters of the warm-up match against the J-League club, proving that he was prepared for his physical strength.

Recently, Bae Joon-ho (Stoke City) was selected as a substitute when he was not called up to the U-23 Asian Cup national team. 안전놀이터

For Ulsan, key fullback Seol Young-woo is constantly receiving offers from European teams, while Lee Dong-kyung, who served as a scorer, joined the military recently. Choi is considered to be a talent who plays his part in both the second line and the side defense. Finally, he gained confidence after scoring a goal in the match against Daegu, which was his sixth K-League appearance.
