Kim Shin-wook also scored 16 goals in 56 matches for the Korean national soccer team.
“Kim Shin-wook is a tall and strong player who can work well with other strikers and play in a variety of styles,” coach Alex Chu Kic said. It suits us in that we have experience.”
“He will help us score a lot of goals and will be a great role model for the young players.”
Kim Shin-wook can form a ‘two-top’ with Dejan Damianovic (42, Montenegro), who was the top scorer in the K-League in Kichi.
Dejan is the player who set records for the most appearances (380 games) and the most goals (198 goals) by a foreign player through K-League Incheon United, FC Seoul, Suwon Samsung, and Daegu FC.
