Son Heung-min’s goal hunting and Yoon Sung-bin’s sprint… I run even on the Lunar New Year holidays

This is the second holiday since the spread of the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19). It’s a long holiday, but all the people can do is spend time at home with their family. In this case, the appearance of the players running through the stadium is a great substitute satisfaction. Luckily, the sport’s clock is busy. Although you can’t find the stadium, there are plenty of events to watch on TV during the holiday season.

Of these, European football is the most interesting. It is thanks to the hot toes of Europeans who are raising the status of Korean football in the big leagues. The most anticipated player is by far the eldest European brother Son Heung-min (29). He scored in the 2020-2021 English Premier League (EPL) match against West Bromwich Albion on the 7th, leading the team to a complete 2-0 win. With the return of his injured’best friend’ Harry Kane (28), he resumed the scoring, which had been stopped for a month after the League Cup semi-final against Brentford on the 6th of last month. The worrisome gaze of soccer fans, who had grown amid an unusual sluggishness, also flew away at once.

As Son Heung-min, who is good at driving, is now waiting for the news of the goal rather than worrying. Teams meeting during the holiday season are not easy. In the early morning of the 14th, they will run 14 consecutive wins in the season, including the Cup, and face Manchester City, who has risen to the top of the EPL. However, Man City is also an opponent with many good memories, such as Son Heung-min scoring three goals alone in the 2018-2019 European Football Federation Champions League (UCL) quarterfinals 1 and 2 matches. It is noteworthy whether Son Heung-min, full of confidence, will make Man City a scapegoat for an additional goal.

Sohn Heung-min’s national team partner, Bordeaux striker Hwang Eui-jo (29), also hunts for a goal in the 25th round of the 2020-2021 League of France against Marseille in the early morning of the 15th, the day after the holiday. At the end of last year, instead of a flanking striker, he was placed in his original position, the front-line striker, and he was hot enough to earn six goals in two months. In addition, Jung Woo-young (22) of Freiburg, who is considered the future of Korean football, is also challenging the fourth goal in the season with his first consecutive goal in the season in an away game in the 21st round of the Bundesliga against Werder Bremen on the night of the 13th.

‘Iron Man’ Yoon Seong-bin (27) rides a sleigh to challenge the gold medal on the ice while European football players run through the ground. He will compete for the 2020-2021 International Bobsleigh Skeleton Federation (IBSF) World Championships held in Altenberg, Germany on the 11th-12th. Yoon Seong-bin, who has already reached the top in not only the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, but also many World Cup series competitions, had no relationship with the gold medal at the World Championships. It has not yet achieved the’Grand Slam’, which has won silver medals in 2016 and bronze medals in 2019, and reached the top in all of the Olympics, World Cups, and World Championships. This is your chance to do the homework you’ve been putting off.

There are plenty of possibilities. In the aftermath of Corona 19, he was unable to compete for 11 months, but he struggled to return to the international stage with the 6th World Cup on the 15th of last month, but won one silver medal and one bronze medal in three World Cup series. In particular, the long-term start showed that it is still the world’s top class. Unlike the World Cup, where the winner is determined by two races, the world championship, which runs four races, is a stage where Yoon Sung-bin’s strengths are further strengthened. In addition, it is worth waiting for the news of the gold medal by raising the sense of driving, which was somewhat dull due to the long blank, through the actual game.

Although no stadium can be found, even in Korea during the holiday season, athletes sprinkle hot sweat in each sport and fight. In particular, professional volleyball has entered the mid-to-late season and the competition has become fierce, so the ranking fluctuates with every game that meets during the holiday season. Among them, the competition between Korean Air and Heungkuk Life Insurance, which leads men and women on the first day of the holiday season, has high attention. Korean Air has not yet completely overcome the pursuit of the second-largest group such as Woori Card, OK Financial Group, and KB Insurance. If you win the match against KB Insurance on this day, you can have a solo system. Heungkuk Life Insurance has maintained the lead throughout the season, but the performance has recently declined and the majesty is not the same as before. It is necessary to find the overwhelming figure of the past against Korea Expressway Corporation, who has reached third place in the league.

Folk wrestling, a’essential element’ of the holiday, unfolds. The 2021 New Year’s Day Ssireum Competition, the first Ssireumpan competition in 2021, will be held at Hapcheon Gymnasium, Hapcheon-gun, Gyeongnam until the 15th. In 2019, the first year of his debut, the first year of his career, Seong-woo Jang (24, Yeongam Folk Ssireum), who again defended the title of ‘Chun-Ha’ in December last year, is drawing attention to what kind of record he will write in his third year of debut.
