Kim Young-hu (Ulsan Mipo)

Was going to stick this on a National League thread, but figured his goalscoring feats so far this season deserved a separate thread.

He's a 23 year-old forward that joined Mipo from Soongsil University earlier this year, and he won the 2005 MVP award at University level, and was selected for the Korean University representative side last year too. He's netted seventeen times already this season for Mipo (including four goals against both Gangneung City and Icheon Hummel this year), and looks a decent bet to follow 2005 K2 League top scorer Kim Han-won into the K-League with that kind of goalscoring form.

*cough* Ansan *cough* ?

More goalscoring heroics from this chap as he's scored in all five of Mipo's matches so far this season. He also scored goals in both legs of the championship final last season, meaning he's scored in each of his last seven appearances, equalling the record set by Incheon Korail's Lee Hu-sun last season.

Lee's 'reward' was a move down (up?) to Namyangju in the K3, but K-League teams must surely be keeping tabs on Kim now.

I think he scored in the President's Cup final as well, right before the N-League season kicked off.

Apparently, Huh Jungmoo has been looking at him. As I continued to laugh at the football in National League, you know Korea is lacking strikers when shit's like this is happening.

Aye, I saw that, on the phone to Mipo for some videos of him to check him out. Would be absolutely magic if he called him up :)

A second half hat-trick today against Ansan. I wonder if Huh Jungmoo still has these videos?

It was interesting to see him today. While he doesn't exactly look like the future of Korean football all three goals were scored from within the six yard box and with no Jo Jaejin (for whatever reason) that type of player is someone the Korea NT simply doesn't have at the moment. However based on the squad for the Jordan games it looks like Huh Jungmoo is far more interested in players who can miss from 30 yards than ones that can actually put the ball in the back of the net because they are standing right in front of it.

Kim shoots for top scorer
September 08, 2009

K-League expansion club Gangwon FC is riding high on the efforts of its rookie forward, Kim Young-hu.

Kim has been rampant of late, scoring six goals in the past six games and helping Gangwon FC earn K-League’s “Best Team” of the week award for the third consecutive week.

The club is the first team to achieve this feat since the K-League first handed out the award back in May 2007.

In Gangwon’s game on Sunday against the Suwon Bluewings, Kim hit the back of the net twice, once in the 29th minute and adding another in the 59th, helping his team to a 3-3 draw against Suwon.

After his latest efforts, Kim now sits in second place in the K-League’s top scorer’s list with 13 goals.

That’s two less than the leader Lee Dong-gook.

While Lee got off to a tremendous start in the early portion of the season, he has been held to one goal in his past five games.

Kim, on the other hand, is scoring one a game at the moment, getting on the score sheet 11 times in the past 10 matches.

Seven games remain in the regular season, so Kim has a good shot at overtaking Lee as the top goal getter this season.

Having played in the National League last season, Kim scored an impressive 30 goals in 26 games in the industrial league. Although he was lauded for his scoring touch, skeptics wondered whether the forward would be able to reproduce in Korea’s top football league the form he has shown in the lower league.

Not only has he dispelled such thoughts, he has also displayed a knack for finding his teammates as well, accumulating seven assists in the season, the most for a rookie.

Gangwon FC is currently in 10th place in league standings with five wins, 10 ties and six losses.

Gangwon's squad numbers were released today and there is no sign of the one person playing for a National League side that came close to national team recognition when Huh Jung-moo was so desperate to find a goalscorer he'd have played his granny up front if she was alive. Rumour has it he's off to Thailand, think he had a trial recently with Port FC but I don't know if he's been signed by them.

His goalscoring exploits for Mipo (55 goals in 54 league appearances!) never really translated to K-League action but it was still reasonable (48 in 145 games). He was a monster and still a legend at National League level...

Yeah, he didn't seem to be getting a regular start last season, and even when he did play it was usually out of position.

He was great for Mipo, the kind of player who wouldn't care if he scored with the ball bouncing off his arse from one yard out, as long as it went in the back of the net.
