However, the two goals started at the same. Right defender Hwang Jae-won’s right foot. Hwang Jae-won’s right-footed ball hit Jung Woo-young’s head and led to an equalizer in the 26th minute of the first half. Hwang Jae-won, who caught the ball in the midfield in the 10th minute of the second half, then dribbled through three defenders and put the ball into the penalty box. The ball flowed in the process of Jung Woo-young and the defense competing, and Cho Young-wook took it in.
Due to the nature of the tournament, Hwang Sun-hong operated the rotation until the final, while Hwang Jae-won started six out of seven games until the final. Choi Joon started only in the third group match against Bahrain after confirming the first place in the group stage, but Hwang was the first to choose Hwang Jae-won as the right defender. Hwang Jae-won played 415 minutes, the second-most after Baek Seung-ho (430 minutes). Born in 2002, he was the youngest member of the national team along with Lee Han-beom, but he was more important than his three-year-old brothers.
Hwang Jae-won proved himself coach Hwang Sun-hong’s first choice with his performance in every game as well as the final. The quarterfinal match against China was also a game that could make Hwang Jae-won’s name known. He used his fast speed to block China’s attack, came into the midfield to help de-pressurize, and broke down the Chinese side with sensuous connections and explosive dribbles in attack. Hong Hyun-seok’s first free-kick goal is also an opportunity Hwang Jae-won got by foul play. Commentator Lee Young-pyo, who explained the game, continued to praise Hwang Jae-won during the broadcast. They usually use different feet, but they have something in common that they are from the same fullback. 스포츠토토
Hwang Jae-won is already a familiar name to Korean K-League fans. As soon as he joined Daegu last season, he pushed out Lee Tae-hee, an existing defender, to secure the starting position and played in 34 games. He finished his first season with one goal and five assists in 42 games going back and forth between the FA Cup AFC Championship with the league, including winning the K League Young Player Award in May.
The reason why Hwang Jae-won is highly regarded is that he has not only the speed and physical elements that he should have as a fullback, but also the off-the-ball movement skills required of a fullback in modern soccer. In fact, ahead of this season, the International Sports Research Center (CIES) under the International Football Federation included Hwang Jae-won as it selected 10 promising offensive right-backs from around the world under the age of 21. Hwang Jae-won is the only Asian player.
Hwang Jae-won, who was first selected by Hwang Sun-hong in September last year, is likely to join the Tokyo Olympics as there are no players at the same age to compete in the position.

The soccer community believes that Hwang Jae-won will join the A national team soon as his skills are rapidly growing. In the Korean national team, new names are steadily rising and falling in the offense and midfield, but the defense has relatively little change. Ahead of the two A matches in October, coach Jurgen Klinsmann called up Kim Jin-soo, Lee Ki-je, Kim Tae-hwan and Seol Young-woo as side defenders. Except for Seol Young-woo, all players are over 30s.
The Korean national team beat Japan 2-1 in the men’s soccer final at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games at Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China, on the 7th.
