There are older brothers who are the same age as me, so they make me feel comfortable. It’s like a family atmosphere. We talked a lot about the future.”

He continued, “I started playing as a youth in Incheon. In middle and high school, I was a ball boy and a stretcher. When I was in the supporters’ seats, I could hear the cheering song loudly. I have really strong memories of my childhood. It seems that the fans are expecting a lot. So honestly, I told myself It’s a burden, but it’s a stadium I’ve dreamed of since I was young. I don’t know when the opportunity will come. But if I get a chance, I want to do well what the team needs. I think it would be nice to even score goals. As much as the fans expected, ‘You’ve come back well’ I want to become a player who does it. Now I’m back home,” he laughed.
