And similar to their promotion-relegation playoff first-leg loss at home, Busan are determined to make things as difficult as possible by losing the first leg of the Korean FA Cup final 2-1 at home against Ulsan.

If Busan do manage to turn things around and lift the trophy, they would go on to be the first Korean second-division side to compete in the AFC Champions League.

Second leg ends 0-0, so Ulsan win the cup. Surprisingly this is their first time to do so.

The fact that Kim Yongdae was MotM tells you all you need to know about Ulsan's performance in the 2nd leg. Would imagine that a lot of those that tuned in will not be in a hurry to go back to another Kleague game.

If you make the cup final a two-legged affair you get what you deserve.

Hah, didn't he win the FA Cup with Busan in 2004? Salt in the wound.

Never liked Busan, think it extremely amusing they've lost out in the promotion playoff final and also the FA Cup final in the space of a week. Not quite May 1986 Heart of Midlothian levels of hilarity but still good nonetheless...
