Ahn Jae-jun (Bucheon) was also excluded from the list due to an injury.

The Korea Football Association did not select replacement players for Park Kyu-hyun and Ahn Jae-jun because there was room for the existing call-up.

A large number of players active in the K-League were selected for this expedition to China, including Eom Won-sang (Ulsan), Ko Young-jun (Pohang), Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk), and Yang Hyeon-jun (Gangwon).

A total of 23 players departed from Korea, and Europeans Jung Woo-young (Freiburg), Kim Tae-hyeon (Vegalta Sendai), and Oh Jae-hyeok (Jeonbuk) joined the team on the 13th.

The final list for the Asian Games is 22 players. Among them, there are three wild cards (players aged 24 and older), so the competition is very fierce.

Also, depending on the position in which the wild card is used, the needle hole becomes smaller.

The Hangzhou Asian Games have been postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 outbreak and will begin in September.

Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho will challenge to win three consecutive Asian Games men’s football championships following the 2014 Incheon Championships and the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Championships. If a gold medal is won, military service benefits are given to the athletes.
