The Korea Sports Council and Sports Dong-A are running the ‘2023 Student Sports Reporters’ program to promote school sports. The student sports reporters, who are selected through an open call for middle and high school students, will cover and introduce various school sports activities and general sports-related news. Through this, we will increase students’ interest in sports activities and take the lead in creating a healthy and vibrant school sports culture.”》
Lee Kang-in was named to the ‘Hwang Sun Hong-ho’ list for the Hangzhou Asian Games 2023. Lee followed in the footsteps of Lionel Messi (Inter Miami), who recently moved to the prestigious French club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Lee’s level of play and skill is so high that coach Hwang Sun-hong has already said he is considering him for the 2023 Hangzhou Asian Games.
Thanks to an amicable agreement with PSG, Lee will be able to play in the Asian Games as a mainstay for Hwang. The Asian Games are even more important for Lee as his military service benefits are at stake. 메이저놀이터
Lee has been a strong performer at the international level, leading Korea to a runner-up finish at the FIFA U-20 World Cup, winning the FIFA U-20 World Cup Golden Ball, and participating in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, so his performance at the Asian Games will be highly anticipated.
So far, the Korean national team has played a lot of games with Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) at the center. At the last Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang, Son played a key role in the team’s success. However, the team was somewhat frustrated in the games without him.
Therefore, there is a lot of expectation and interest in whether Lee Kang-in will be able to establish himself as the ace behind Son Heung-min at the Hangzhou Asian Games, alongside wildcard selections Seol Young-woo (Ulsan), Park Jin-seop (Jeonbuk), and Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk).
