He was also the ‘absolute first-class’ managing director, Kim Cheon.
In 2023, the K-League opened fire. K League 1 woke up from hibernation on the 25th. K League 2 takes over the baton. On March 1st, the third day of the festival, ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ opens. In particular, this year’s K-League 2 transformed into a 13-team system with the addition of ‘new teams’ Cheonan FC and Chungbuk Cheongju. However, Cheonan and Cheongju are also evaluated as being formidable, predicting a more intense season than ever.
The result is ‘1st class – 12th class’. The first and second interest in K-League 2 is ‘promotion’. In K-League 2, the winning team is directly promoted to K-League 1, and the second-place team plays a promotion playoff against the 11th-place team in K-League 1. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th place teams will have a promotion playoff with the 10th place team in the K League 1 through a playoff. It is a ‘1+2’ composition.
‘River 1’ was the responsibility of Managing Director Kim Cheon. At the K League 2 Media Day held on the 21st, 10 out of 12 coaches selected Kim Cheon as a candidate for the quarterfinals. The other two also did not mention it because ‘It is too natural to pick Kim Cheon as a candidate for the top 5’.
Kim Cheon has built an unprecedented power. In addition to the existing Lee Young-jae, Kwon Chang-hoon, and Kim Ji-hyun, national level resources such as Won Doo-jae, Kim Jin-gyu, Lee Sang-min, Kim Dong-hyun, Cho Young-wook, Yoon Jong-gyu, and Park Min-gyu added. It is a member composition that can rise to the top of the K-League 1. It is difficult to find weaknesses in all positions. There was a big change as former coach Kim Tae-wan, who led the team for a long time, resigned and inexperienced coach Sung Han-soo took the new helm, but the prospect that Kim Cheon would strike again prevailed, as in previous years when he was promoted with overwhelming results.
Sports Chosun soccer reporters had similar expectations. 7 out of 9 reporters expected Kim Cheon to win and direct promotion. The other two also evaluated that the runner-up would be okay. It was evaluated as the closest power to promotion.
Opinions were divided about the second place and the winner of the playoffs. If you look at your powers calmly, they are similar except for Kim Cheon. This year, there is no team that leads investment like Jeju United in the past or Daejeon Hana Citizen last season. FC Anyang, Gyeongnam FC, and Seoul E-Land, which spent the least amount of money, also reduced their budgets. 스포츠토토 It is evaluated that the top-ranked teams have somewhat shrunk, while the lower-ranked teams have improved. Chungnam Asan and Gimpo FC, which were mainly operated by domestic players, also filled the quota for foreigners. Busan I-Park and Jeonnam Dragons, who had lost their pride by ranking 10th and 11th last season, also struggled.
Sports Chosun reporters analyzed that Anyang and Busan were opponents of Gimcheon. In Anyang, 1 reporter predicted a direct promotion, 4 players finished second, 2 players predicted a playoff winner, Busan had 1 direct promotion, 3 players predicted a second place, and 3 players predicted a playoff winner. On Media Day, 12 coaches selected Anyang as candidates for the quarterfinals. Lee Woo-hyeong was not the only manager of Anyang.
