Completed military service at age 22… Lee Kang-in became as relaxed as Son Heung-min

Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), known as the future of Korean soccer, has laid the foundation for leaping to greater heights. This is because the military service issue was resolved by winning a gold medal at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.

The Korean U-24 national soccer team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, was supported by consecutive goals by Woo-young Jeong (Stuttgart) and Young-wook Cho (Gimcheon) in the men’s soccer final of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held against Korea and Japan at the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China on the 7th. They achieved a thrilling 2-1 comeback victory over Japan. Korea achieved the feat of winning three consecutive Asian Games.

Lee Kang-in, who appeared as a starter in this game, played for about 70 minutes until he was replaced in the 27th minute of the second half. Afterwards, he waited on the bench, but when Korea’s gold medal was confirmed, he ran out onto the field, tied the Taegeukgi like a cape, and ran around the ground with a bright smile on his face.안전놀이터

In an interview after the game, Lee Kang-in said, “I am really happy that I achieved my goal of winning,” and added, “I am grateful to my fellow players, coaches, and fans for their support.” He then smiled, saying, “Especially, it was a special and good experience for me as it was my first time winning a game representing the Republic of Korea. I don’t think I’ll ever forget it in the future.”

In addition to the joy of winning, Lee Kang-in also enjoyed military service benefits. Lee Kang-in, who started his career in Europe, has created conditions for stable activities in Europe. Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, Hwang Hee-chan, and Hwang In-beom, who won the Jakarta-Palembang competition five years ago and received military service benefits, are playing an active role on the European stage. Compared to Son Heung-min’s dramatic resolution of the military issue as a wild card in the last Asian Games, Lee Kang-in resolved the military issue relatively easily.

Regarding military service benefits, Lee Kang-in said, “Actually, (military service) wasn’t that big of a burden,” and “It is true that it has made my future as an athlete more comfortable, but I don’t have any special thoughts as it is something all Korean men have to do.”
