It is Ulsan who has broken the ‘no-win jinx’ in three consecutive away games in Suwon. Director Hong Myung-bo said, “It’s just a bad feeling to be called a jinx. I think it’s good just to get rid of it. I think it’s important to prevent our opponent from breaking our jinx in the future.” 

Looking back at the conceded scene, he explained, “I scored the first goal and conceded it shortly after. 

Regarding Kim Young-kwon’s ‘cannon ball mid-distance scoring’, he laughed, saying, “I think I kicked forward because there was no place to give it”, but “Kim Young-kwon’s strengths are accurate crosses and kicking power. I told the players that they should be aware of shooting before coming out today. Good shooting. I think it is,” he said.
