Hwang Ui-jo is facing the biggest crisis of his career. He was once a player who received a lot of applause, but his career will be completely suspended until he is cleared of charges for the time being.월카지노
The Cyber Investigation Unit of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency announced on the 18th that it has banned Hwang Ui-jo, who is suspected of illegal filming under the Sexual Violence Punishment Act, from leaving the country on the 16th. The police reportedly made the decision in consideration of Hwang Ui-jo’s refusal to attend several times.
Hwang Ui-jo submitted an application to the office of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s hearing inspection human rights officer on the 17th, when the departure ban was imposed, saying, “I left my team without permission due to overinvestigation.”
On November 18 last year, the police summoned Hwang Ui-jo as a suspect and investigated him. Hwang Ui-jo then sent the first request for attendance on December 27, but he did not attend due to club circumstances. Immediately, the police requested the second attendance.
In June last year, Hwang Ui-jo filed a police complaint against a netizen who threatened Hwang Ui-jo with photos and videos of women. The person in question was claimed to be Hwang Ui-jo’s ex-lover at the time.
However, the police identified Hwang Ui-jo’s illegal filming during the investigation and converted him into a suspect. In addition, Hwang Ui-jo’s law firm said in a statement in November last year, “The other woman is a public figure who is engaged in broadcasting and is married.” The police immediately announced that there is a regulation to punish the disclosure of personal information under the Sexual Violence Punishment Act, and said an investigation into the related charges was also conducted.
Under these circumstances, the Korea Football Association decided to temporarily remove Hwang from the national team. The Korea Football Association (KFA) discussed Hwang’s recent alleged illegal filming with the participation of key members of the association, including the chairmen of the Ethics Committee, the Fair Trade Commission, and the National Power Enhancement Committee, at the Korea Football Center from 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 28 last year.
The conclusion after more than an hour of discussion was “withdrawal.” After the meeting, the association decided not to select Hwang Ui-jo for the national team until a clear conclusion was reached on the facts.
Lee Yun-nam, Chairman of the Ethics Committee, Kim Won-geun, Vice Chairman of the Fair Trade Commission, Michael Mueller, Park Tae-ha, Vice Chairman of the Power Reinforcement Committee, Choi Young-il, and Chung Hae-sung, chairman of the competition, attended the meeting.
Lee Yoon-nam, chairman of the ethics committee who presided over the meeting, said, “The dispute over whether the crime is still ongoing and the association cannot make a prediction and conclusion on the matter under investigation,” but added, “The national team should have great morality and responsibility. As a player representing the country, you have to manage yourself and you are in a position not to do anything that can damage the reputation of the national team.”
“We considered that Hwang Ui-jo is being investigated as a suspect in the case under investigation, that it is difficult to play the national team normally, and that the expectations of soccer fans looking at the national team have increased. We judged that it was inappropriate to select Hwang Ui-jo as a member of the national team,” he added. Naturally, coach Jürgen Klinsmann did not include Hwang in the list for the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup.
Hwang Ui-jo once received a lot of attention as the next-generation striker to lead Korean soccer. Hwang Ui-jo, who made his professional debut through Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma (now Seongnam FC) in 2013, joined Gamba Osaka (Japan) in 2017 after receiving attention in the K-League. And after making the list for the 2018 Jakarta Palembang Asian Games, he showed an incredible ability to score nine goals in seven matches. At that time, the Asian Games team won the gold medal thanks to Hwang Ui-jo’s performance.
Hwang Ui-jo made it to the European stage in 2019 based on such performances. His destination was Bordeaux. Hwang Ui-jo has established himself as the ace of the team, with 29 goals and seven assists in 98 Bordeaux appearances. However, Bordeaux naturally said goodbye as he was demoted to the second division. His next destination was Nottingham Forest, which he was promoted to ahead of the 2022-23 season.
It was the moment Hwang dreamed of making his debut in the Premier League, which he had long wanted. However, Nottingham at the time recruited a lot of new players including Hwang to stay in the top flight, and eventually expressed its intention not to recruit Hwang yet. As a result, Hwang left for Olympiacos (Greece) for one year on loan.
Here, Hwang Ui-jo suffered his worst performance. He played in 12 matches in all competitions and recorded one assist. Disappointed with Hwang Ui-jo’s poor performance, Olympiacos eventually ended his loan deal with Hwang early on.
Later, Hwang Ui-jo, who became a duckling in the Nakdong River, left on a short-term loan at FC Seoul to maintain his sense of play. FC Seoul reached out first, and Hwang Ui-jo scored four goals in 18 appearances for FC Seoul. He then returned to his team in time for Nottingham’s pre-season schedule.
Once again, Hwang Ui-jo’s Premier League debut was just around the corner.
