Leading Ulsan Hyundai and lowest ranking Suwon Samsung had a hot goal feast.
Suwon lost 2-3 to Ulsan in the 14th round home game of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ held at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 21st.

On the other hand, Suwon stayed at the bottom with 2 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses (8 points). Director Hong Myung-bo’s ‘Suwon Jinx’ was also broken. After taking office in 2021, coach Hong struggled with 2 draws and 3 losses in the Suwon expedition, but with the victory that day, he got out of the jinx.
Suwon, which recently renewed its atmosphere with coach Kim Byung-soo of ‘Byungsoo Ball’ as the new head coach, played well against leaders Ulsan, but suffered a loss due to a defensive mistake at the end of the game. According to News 1 of the day, coach Kim Byeong-soo encouraged the players, saying, “It was a difficult game as expected, but I received a big resonance when I saw the players’ will regardless of the results. Defeat will be a good medicine.”먹튀검증
