Ryu Seung Woo (Eintracht Braunschweig) – Struggling for playing time. 2 mediocre sub appearance & surprising start against RB Leipzig where he played very poorly. He was subbed off in 36th min for missing a clear cut chance on goal and for tactical reason as he was a liability in defense.
Park Jung Bin (Karlsruher SC) – Recently returned from injury but like Ryu, he too is struggling to make the match day squad. Pre-season had him competing for RW/RM position with Manuel Torres but the Spaniard has clearly taken off this season. Park Jung Bin wasn’t helped by KSC strengthening LW/LM through purchasing Hiroki Yamada just before the season started.
Choi Kyoung Rok (FC St Pauli) – Performing admirably for FC St Pauli II. He recently scored against undefeated HSV II in Nord Derby.
Kim Dong-Su (HSV II) – Consistent starter for undefeated HSV II in defense. His performance is earning him rave reviews and even tipped to make an appearance with HSV senior team at some stage (helped by HSV promoting HSV II manager as full time senior manager).
Roan Kwon (HSV II) – Zero appearance for him thus far. Difficult to find any info on his status but considering he featured often last season for HSV U-19, I’m going to guess he is currently injured.
Kim Jin Su (FC Augsburg II) – Few late sub appearance for Kim Jin Su.
Jo Il Young, Oh Se Jun, Oh Min Taek, Lee Hee Sung (Werder Bremen III) – Jo Il Young is 18 yr old GK, Oh Se Jun is 19 yr old FB/Winger, Oh Min Taek is 19 yr old CM/Winger and Lee Hee Sung is 21 yr old Winger/Forward. Oh Se Jun recently joined KNT U-20 team for AFC U-19 tournament. Of the 4 players, Oh Min Taek seems to be the most promising one as he often starts for Werder III.
Kiu (UD Almeria B) – He recently joined KNT U-20 team for U-19 AFC tournament. Before he joined the national team, he was busy playing for UD Almeria B and occasionally training with UD Almeria 1st team.
Kim Woo Hong (Deportivo La Coruna B) – Consistent starter for Deportivo La Coruna B as RW/LW. He notched a goal and has few assists so far.
Ji Eon Hak & Yun Jae Yong (AD Alcocorn B) – Ji Eon Hak made a surprise start for AD Alcocorn in a Cup match. Since then, he has consistently featured for AD Alcocorn B and even scored a goal recently. Yun recently returned from injury.
Lee Kang In (Valencia Infantil A) – I’ll briefly cover Lee Kang In’s current situation (Jinseok’s the Tavern expert on highly rated youth prospects). Being compared to David Silva by Spanish/Valencia media, he currently wears #10 and plays like one for Valencia Infantil A.
