A closer look at the South Korean defender…

YUN SUK-YOUNG began his career with Chunnam Dragons in his native South Korea, coming through the club’s youth system.

The highly-rated left-back made his debut for the K-League side shortly after his 19th birthday in March 2009. 

Suk-Young made 20 appearances in his first term, in what was a 30-match campaign. K-League seasons typically run from March to November.

In 2010 he made 16 appearances as the club reached the semi-final of the Korean FA Cup.

A year later, Suk-Young featured on 19 occasions while last season was his most successful in terms of outings as he made 25 appearances.

Internationally, Suk-Young represented South Korea at U17, U20 and U23 level before making his senior debut in October 2012 against Iran in a World Cup qualifier.

The Suwon-born defender also featured in last year’s Olympic Games, and played in South Korea’s 1-1 draw against Team GB.

Quick with and without the ball, the 22 year old is a threat going forward and is known for being able to handle the physical side of the game.

Confident in possession, Suk-Young promises to be a valuable addition to the R’s squad.
