South Korea, led by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, won 3-0 in the second Group C away match against China at the Universiade Sports Center in Shenzhen, China, on the 21st (Korea time) thanks to Son Heung-min (Tottenham)’s multi-goal and Jung Seung-hyun (Ulsan Hyundai)’s additional goal.
As a result, Klinsmann ranked first in Group C with a 5-0 victory over Singapore on the 16th and a win over China.

Hwang Ui-jo played in place of Cho Kyu-sung (Mit Whelan) in the 27th minute of the second half when the match against China was underway. After that, he played on the ground for about 22 minutes before the end of the game and was responsible for the Klinsmann’s attack.
In response, the official social network service (SNS) of the Korean national soccer team said, “The suspect is a national team (national team), “Does it make sense to have a suspect in a police investigation sex crime play in the game,” “The atmosphere was good, but the moment Hwang Ui-jo came out, the atmosphere was ruined,” and “Select some players.” Negative comments such as “Is the national team a joke?”
Hwang Ui-jo was recently questioned by the police as a suspect of illegal filming.
Controversy erupted in June when posts and videos exposing Hwang Ui-jo’s personal life were posted around SNS.
Hwang Ui-jo’s side sued the distributor A on charges of violating the Information and Communication Network Act (timely defamation of false information) and intimidation. Accordingly, the police arrested the distributor A and obtained an arrest warrant on the 16th and are investigating.
On top of that, the police believe that there was an illegal filming situation in the process of analyzing the distributed Hwang Ui-jo video, and converted Hwang Ui-jo into a suspect and began an investigation on the 18th. It even executed a search warrant for Hwang Ui-jo’s mobile phone.
In this regard, director Klinsmann said he would follow the principle of presumption of innocence for now. The Korea Football Association had a similar response.
An association official said in a phone call with Newsis on the 22nd, “We have no choice but to keep an eye on it now. Nothing has been confirmed yet. For now, we have to watch the progress of the investigation,” he said.
