Lee Sang-min replaces Kim Tae-hyun; Hwang Sun-hong-ho joins Hangzhou AG’s 22-man squad.
Hwang Sun-hong’s 22-man squad for the Hangzhou Asian Games has been completed with the addition of Kim Tae-hyun (Vegalta Sendai).
At a press conference held at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village in Chungcheongbuk-do on Thursday, Korea Olympic Committee President Lee Ki-heung revealed that Kim Tae-hyun has joined the Hwang Seon-hong-led squad as the final 22nd player.
This is a replacement selection after Lee Sang-min, who was initially selected by Hwang, withdrew due to his “drinking history.
Hwang was forced to field a 21-man squad after the Korean Football Association belatedly discovered that Lee Sang-min, who was fined 5 million won for a previous drunken driving offense, could not be selected for the national team until August of this year under the rules.
The deadline for submitting the roster ended last month, and the Asian Olympic Committee (OCA) only allows substitutions for injuries and medical reasons after the deadline, making it difficult to find a replacement.

The 2000-born defender had previously failed to make the final roster, but had been selected by Hwang on several occasions.
He was selected for the March-June call-up and participated in both the Qatar and China tournaments.
The 187-centimeter center back is a left-footed defender who started the June 19 away trial against China (0-1 loss) and played at the back as part of the back line.
According to the KFA, Kim Tae-hyun will be called up for training in Changwon on the fourth of next month.
Hwang will train in Changwon until the 12th, then move to Paju National Training Center (NFC) on the 13th for additional training until 먹튀검증토토사이트 the 15th before departing for China on the 16th.
