Technical support issues
"well. It wasn't as exciting as I thought. “I guess I’m getting older.”
A bright smile spread across the face of Moon Seon-min (31), who contributed greatly to Jeonbuk Hyundai's Korean Football Association (FA) Cup final. He said these words lightly, but at the same time, I felt his sense of responsibility as a senior officer.
Moon Seon-min scored the first goal in the 22nd minute of the first half in the 2023 Hana One Q FA Cup semifinals against Incheon United held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 1st. Jeonbuk won 3-1 after Moon Seon-min's first goal, followed by Baek Seung-ho's winning goal and Park Jae-yong's penalty kick goal, and advanced to the FA Cup final for the second year in a row.
Moon Seon-min's expression when I met him in the mixed zone (joint coverage area) after the game was calmer than expected. Moon Seon-min expressed his thoughts on the first goal, saying, “It is a one-off game, so one goal is important, and I think I took the lead with my goal,” and added, “We advanced to the finals, but there is still one more step left, so today’s joy is short-lived.” “I will put this behind me and enjoy the joy after winning,” he said proudly.
This is the 5th season since leaving Incheon and moving to Jeonbuk in January 2019. Even excluding his time as a managing director due to his military service, it is 3.5 seasons. Moon Seon-min, who came to Jeonbuk at a young age in his mid-20s, has now risen to the ranks of seniors.
He appears to have a light-hearted image on the outside, such as the control tower ceremony, the slick bag ceremony, and the personal broadcast controversy during the season, but he is always sincere when it comes to soccer. Especially as he gets older, he also feels the responsibility of being a senior. Moon Seon-min said, “This victory was not as exciting as I thought. I think we've become a little more cool-headed because we have the finals left. “Looking at things like this, I guess I’m getting older,” he said, cautioning against being hasty.
Moon Seon-min, who played only 23 league games and 999 minutes last season, successfully rebounded this season by playing 31 league games and 1,829 minutes. His score of 6 goals is also the highest in the last 4 seasons. Thanks to this, he has been consistently selected to the A national team, which he has not had a relationship with for a while.
He is having a busy season with the league, Asian Champions League (ACL), FA Cup, and national team A, but Moon Seon-min is just grateful for all of this. Sunmin Moon said, “I am always competing and challenging. “There are older guys on my team who are older than me, and I’m just doing what they’ve all been doing,” he said. “I’m just so thankful for being given the opportunity. “I will never lose my original intention,” he pledged.
