Tell us about how you started playing soccer.

After watching the 2002 World Cup, I gained a belief in my desire to pursue a career as a soccer player.
Unfortunately, my school didn't even have a soccer club. The fact that I was young prevented me from transferring. Therefore, I started playing soccer after entering middle school a little later than others, and it was a very lonely time.
Becoming a soccer player requires hard work and sincerity, and also some luck. For this reason, I like to cheer for young players whenever I see them.

We're curious. What's the play style of Suwon FC?

Our team plays aggressively from defense to offense, and this makes our fans very excited. 
There were many impressive games this year, too. Although we were not able to advance to Final A, we hope to achieve a successful outcome by accumulating 3 points for our fans in this home game. 

The 30 is your number, is there a reason why you are particularly attached to this number?

The number I received when I joined first joined Suwon Samsung was 30, so when I returned to Suwon FC, I wanted to play with 30 since it's a number that means a lot to me.

What is the most memorable episode of your 10-year career?

I mostly remember the fan's support and appreciation. It gives me a lot of strength as a player. Whenever I step onto the stadium field, I not only give it my all but also draw inspiration and motivation from the kind words of encouragement from fans who reach out to me through social media.

How do you prepare for injuries during the game?

Due to my relatively shorter stature, playing as a center-back might seem challenging. However, I compensate by actively participating in physical battles and leveraging my strength to disrupt the opposing striker's ability to execute accurate headers.
Thankfully, I didn't have many injuries. Therefore, I do not make any special preparations, but I do study the injury area carefully in order to prevent future injuries.

How did you find out about Wavewear products? Please give us honest feedback about the product.

I've been a player for a long time and as I get older, I feel a bit nervous about my knees. So I put the kinesiology tape during the game. However, the tape kept falling off because of the sweat, and it was uncomfortable to take it off and put it on every time. So I personally looked into the product and found out about Wavewear through SNS.

I wear the Wavewear knee sleeve every day during my workouts. Unlike other knee sleeves that would wear out before I even warmed up, this one truly delivers. It provides a satisfying level of tension and securely supports my knee without being intrusive. It is definitely different.

I've been using it for more than a month now. Since I sweat a lot, I try to keep the tape sticky by hand washing. Personally, I'm so satisfied with the product that I want to wear it during the game.
