Cheon Seong-hun (23, Incheon United), a striker who was raised by Incheon himself, is filling the void left by Stefan Mugosa (31, Vissel Kobe). Some fans are calling Cheon Seong-hoon ‘Cheongo-sa (Chun Sung-hoon + Mugosa)’. That’s how good his first season in the K-League started.
Chun Seong-hoon returned to Incheon ahead of the 2023 season. After passing through the Incheon youth team, Gwangseong Middle School and Daegeon High School, Chun Seong-hun, who passed the test to join Augsburg in 2018, lived in Germany for four years. Chun Seong-hun, who finished the challenge in Germany, chose the uniform of ‘Dagger (blue + black)’ again.
Public expectations were high. Chun Seong-hoon was praised as a player who will lead the future of Incheon by playing as a ‘twin tower’ with Lee Ho-jae (Pohang Steelers), who is the same age as Daegeon High School. This season, he came into contact with Incheon again, and fans hoped that he would fill the vacancy left by Mugosa ‘Jupo’.
Chun Seong-hoon’s K-League debut was later than expected. He appeared for the first time on the 16th of last month against Gangwon FC (2-0 win), which was the 7th game after the opening. It was the moment when his ‘hope’, which had been growing his dream of becoming a professional player by watching Incheon matches every week since childhood, came true.
Chun Seong-hoon recently said, “This is the stage I have been waiting for. He prepares with excitement for every match. He is nervous but excited every time he plays,” he said of his K-League debut.
In his second K-League match against Suwon FC (2-2 draw), Chun Seong-hun made his name known to the fans by scoring multiple goals. He caught a pass from Hernández and scored his debut goal with a chipped shot, then scored his second goal with an RBI header. His third goal didn’t take long. On April 30, 8 days after the match against Suwon FC, he broke the Pohang net with a calm right-footed shot from the gate. It was the goal that ended Pohang’s undefeated streak in the opening 9 matches (5 wins, 4 draws).
Chun Seong-hun, a tall striker with a height of 1m 90cm, is proving that he is capable of fighting the ball in the air, shooting, and linking. His composure stands out, especially in his attacking areas. His first goal with a chip shot was a scene that showed both boldness and composure. 메이저사이트
Cheon Seong-hun, who had no luck with goals during his days at Daegeon High School, said, “I was confident because I did a lot of (shooting) training. He seems to be able to train hard to maintain (feeling) in the future and be confident. At that time (when he was in Daegeon High School), he did not have confidence in shooting, but he developed his confidence by practicing a lot in Germany. If he increases his shooting frequency, I think he will score a lot.”
