Gwangju FC (hereinafter referred to as Gwangju) midfielder Jeong Ho-yeon is a player that Gwangju coach Lee Jeong-hyo cherishes. He cares so much that Director Lee wants to make Jeong Ho-yeon his son-in-law.
Jeong Ho-yeon’s silent play, which provides stability both on and off the pitch, is a role model for his teammates. Colleague Eom Ji-seong points out that Jeong Ho-yeon’s strength is that she has no ups and downs. In addition, Ho-yeon Jeong has an excellent understanding of tactics, and his ability to make instantaneous decisions and carry the ball are equally well-equipped. It’s a style that modern directors would just like. So he also joined the national team participating in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. He is expected to keep pace with Lee Kang-in, Baek Seung-ho, and Hong Hyun-seok in the midfield.
Jeong Ho-yeon, whom I met in Gwangju not long ago, was as calm as I heard. Still, there was a clear direction in every word. He cleverly expressed what he wanted to say. The image of him walking around on the field with a clear sense of purpose was also evident in the interview.
The interview video of Jeong Ho-yeon can also be found on the YouTube channel ‘Haebangchon Soccer Company’. Here, Jeong Ho-yeon’s ‘quiet stories’ that were not fully depicted in the video are included.

b11: Gwangju has many unique characters. Who would Jeong Ho-yeon choose?
“(Kim) Han-gil hyung (laughter). We share a room, but he laughs a lot, both to himself and to himself. He also makes weird noises. He even suggests that we do it together. Last time, he said beep(?). If you don’t do this together, I won’t do it either. Now you. He won’t pay any attention to me, and then he gets angry again. He only acts like this in his room. Outside, he creates a quiet image. I don’t know how many people see him like this (laughs).”
b11: Do you also watch European soccer often?
“I see it often, and it shows a lot in the team. Especially Manchester City, Arsenal, and Brighton & Hove Albion (hereinafter Brighton). Each of the three teams has its own characteristics. Brighton has an advantage in build-up, Manchester City has an advantage in the final third, and Arsenal has an advantage in the final third. “I focus on defense. My personal favorite club is FC Barcelona.”
b11: These days, players are going to Europe from a young age. I think there are a lot of things to think about.
“I’m jealous, but I also want to face reality. It seems amazing to go to a place where I’m the only person from a different country and adapt to the culture and language. I think it would be difficult if I didn’t prepare in advance and get to know the culture. Anyway, my I want to face reality through soccer. I want to grow by making mistakes and realizing what level I am and to what extent I can play. It will be comfortable in Korea. The language is also good. But I think I will be left out if I become complacent. Learner. “I want to become this.”
b11: A break question! How long do you think it will take to become as famous as actor Jeong Ho-yeon, who appeared in ‘Squid Game’?
“I think that would be difficult (laughter)… but let me tell you, about 5 years?”
b11: What do you do when you rest?
“I like being at home. I play League of Legends (LoL) or watch dramas. My LoL tier is Gold 3! I watch all dramas except horror. I don’t think it’s okay to be scary. After watching it, I think about it when I go home alone in the evening. “I watched ‘King the Land’ recently.”
b11: I think I also use Instagram, but the feed doesn’t seem very active.
“I made it to look at other people’s things (laughter). I’m embarrassed to reveal it. I uploaded the photo because I was scolded when I went to Gimpo FC’s Jo Seong-kwon’s house.카지노 They said if there wasn’t one, they wouldn’t know it was you….”
“Rather than a flashy play, it is a play that the team wants. A helpful play. I will do my best to avoid being criticized by the fans.”
b11: What was it like the first time you visited the Paju National Team Training Center?
“Honestly, I didn’t want to go at first. I didn’t know anyone. I was nervous and my heart was beating fast. But now I’m okay because my brothers take good care of me. (How on earth do you play in a tense game?) If you want to make a living, you have to do it. It’s your job (laughter) ).”
b11: What do you imagine it will be like in 10 years?
“I hope I’ll still be playing soccer 10 years from now. I don’t know what will happen day by day, year by year.”
b11: What was your dream as a child?
“Historian. I liked history when I was young. The contents were fascinating. Who wrote it, how they wrote it, what language they used at the time, and I had questions about each and every one of them. Then, I started liking history. However, as I got deeper into the grades, I There were some difficult points. At the time, I thought, “Oh, this isn’t right,” so I played soccer hard (laughter). Still, I still like historical dramas and movies. I’ve seen ‘King Gwanggaeto’ three times. I like Goguryeo. I always wonder. Why Gwanggaeto? “Didn’t the Great King unify the three kingdoms?”
b11: I think there are many people who were thankful while playing soccer.
“I’m really grateful to my family. My parents helped me a lot. And in my family, all my older brothers played soccer. So they helped me find the right exercise and nutritional supplements for me. They continued to give me advice even when I was doing well or not. I went to watch the game every day. Come and tell me. They are guys who played soccer, so they know the path. Even when you are having a hard time or suffering, they are always there to help you. They invest a lot of their time and give you advice. So I think it is right for them to tell you. I do. I accept it when people tell me that I was actually able to do something in a situation that I thought I couldn’t do. It’s nice that you speak calmly and well. Are you praising me for something I did well? I don’t think they say things like that (laughter).”
b11: Now that I think about it, all three brothers played soccer!
“What happened is that in our family, the eldest brother started playing soccer. So I went to take a test, and the second brother followed along and started playing soccer as well. Then I would be left alone at home, right? So my dad said, ‘You should play soccer, too.’ So, I joined the soccer team. My parents both worked, so I had to go to school as a child, so they thought it would be better to stick with my older brothers. (Isn’t that why I started playing soccer because I wanted to?) I didn’t like sports (laughter) ). I liked being at home. I played soccer like that, but I ended up forgetting about studying while playing, so I ended up thinking that this was the only thing I could do.”
