Hwang Eui-jo debuted in Seongnam Ilhwa in 2013 and then played an active part in Gamba Osaka. After playing an active role in the 2018 Jakarta Palembang Asian Games gold medal, he moved to Bordeaux in 2019 and succeeded in advancing to Europe. In Bordeaux, he showed his ability by scoring double-digit goals for two consecutive seasons, but suffered a difficult period last year due to injuries and transfers.
