The Korea Football Association announced on the 16th that “Hong Hyun-seok has been excluded due to injury and Park Jin-seop has been selected as a replacement. Midfielder Hong Hyun-seok felt discomfort in his left shin before the official training on the 15th and was diagnosed at the hospital after a mandatory team test. A small fatigue fracture was found in his left tibia. While it is not a serious injury, the medical team decided that the initial diagnosis of a fatigue fracture is important to manage and excluded him from the squad to give him rest to prevent further injury, according to the national team. He will remain with the national team until the Singapore match.
Park was called up to the national team 15 nights ago.
Park is a late bloomer looking to make his A-match debut at the age of 27. He started his career with Daejeon Corail after failing to make it to the professional ranks upon his debut. He went on to play for Ansan Greeners and Daejeon Hana Citizens in the K League 2 before joining K League 1 powerhouse Jeonbuk Hyundai in 2022. Originally a midfielder, Park became a professional center back after joining Jeonbuk, where he performed at the highest level of the K League 1 and was selected as a wild card for this year’s Hangzhou Asian Games. It was a dramatic story of a player with no youth national team experience becoming a gold medalist right out of the gate.
Park is classified as a midfielder because he was Hong Hyun-seok’s replacement, and he often plays in the midfield again for Jeonbuk, but given his position at the Asian Games and his recent history, he could be classified as a center back.
He is a versatile player who can play both as a specialized defensive midfielder and as a backup center back, which is something the national team has been lacking.
