Football or Soccer – 축구 (Chug / Gu)
Football or Soccer (축구) is one of the most popular sports in Korea and South Korea even hosted the World Cup 10 years ago and reached the semi-finals. Maybe the most popular Korean Football player is Park Ji-Sung who plays for Manchester Utd in the English Premier League.
The photo used (courtesy of Modern Seoul Magazine) was taken during the FC Seoul vs. Incheon Utd K League game a few weeks ago. Although not to the same standard as the English Premier League it still is a really fun day out.
