Short Story

Jung Bin Han Now, many soccer fans know Ji Sung, Park who is midfielder of Manchester United. He became the top Asian player around the Asian soccer fans, and world soccer fans also appreciate his ability. This time I will introduce the growth story of Park. I think many people want to hear about how he became soccer player, and what makes him the best. Ji Sung, Park was born in Goheung, Jeollanam-do, South Korea on 25 February, 1981. When he was 3, his family moved to Suwon from Goheung. He entered Seryu Elementary School and started soccer at grade 5. When he was in grade 6, the team got second place in a national elementary soccer meet. After that, he got the 5th Cha Bum Kun soccer prize. When he played in a game, spectators said him to Miki Mouse, because Park dribbled bigger students than him, and got up in a moment when he fell down. Until grade 10, he had a small frame, so his father made nourishing food for him. Even he caught a frog and gave him frog‟s boiling water. Coach also thought the hard training will interrupt his growth, so he did just light training. In 2000, Park took years off school and joined Kyoto Purple Sanga. During three years, he played good as his companies such as Daisuke Matsui, Kazuyoshi Miura. In January 1st, 2003, Kyoto matched the final of Emperor‟s Cup with Kashima Antlers. When team was losing by 1-0, in 52 minutes, he scored a goal with a header. Then, team scored one more goal, and won this game. Finally, Kyoto took a trophy, and this cup was the first trophy for team. That game was Park‟s last match in Kyoto. Park was 2002 FIFA World Cup national team player. He performed a brilliant exploit. He scored against Portugal in group stage. This goal became one of the wonderful goals in World Cup. Gus Hiddink who was coach of Korea national team, called Park to the PSV Eindhoven. At the first season, he did not show his ability very well, and companies and fans also avoided him. But, in the 2004/05 season, he got goals in UEFA Champions League, and team reached the semifinal. Fans appreciated his soccer skills, and said him to stay our club. But, he moved to Manchester United on June 23rd, 2005. Park got No.13. He had a debut match in Hong Kong on July 23rd, 2005. In England, he debut on August 13th for versus Everton. He scored first goal in 2006 versus with Arsenal. When he joined Manchester United, Korea soccer fans were worried about him that can adapt EPL. Fortunately, he definitely adapted in EPL and showed his soccer. Park injured on September 10th, 2006 and came back on December 18th. After operation, he showed better than before. Team won 2006/07 season, and he got the first champion medal of the Asians. Park is always strong in the big match, so he participated in Champions League final match in 2009. This was the first time that Asian played on Champions League final match. In 2010/11 season, he spent successful season. He scored 7 goals and 5 assists. 6 Dream of Soccer July 2011

“You can achieve your dream!” - Edu Jung Bin Han

The first interview time is for Edu. His full name is Eduardo Gonsalves de Oliveira. He was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil on 30 November, 1981. Now, he is in Schalke 04, Bundesliga. Edu made his debut in Santos FC in 2000. He passed through many clubs such as Guarani, CRAC, Nautico, VfL Bochum, and FSV Mainz 05. In 2007, he moved to Suwon Bluewings, South Korea. At that time, he has been heyday. When he played in Bundesliga, he participated in 83 matches and scored 18 goals. In the K-League, he participated in 75 games and had 29 goals. After three years, he wanted to go back to Germany, so he moved to Schalke 04 in 2010 and now he participated in 35 matches and recorded 7 goals until now. I asked him about his life of Korea and Germany, and some private questions. Do you want to know about all of him? Let‟s go!

Hello, this is Jung Bin Han from Dream of Soccer. I‟m so glad to interview you I also glad to interview with Korean magazine. I miss Korea so much. Many K-League fans are waiting and missing you now. Oh really? I want to see Grandbleu (Suwon Bluewings‟ supporters) once again. They were supporting me passionately. I was also fan of you. In 2008, you scored more than 15 goals. Then, Suwon got champion. How was the feeling? Umm… It was very nice that cannot explain in detail, but I remembered late in the game. Our team won by 2-1 until 80 minutes. The snow was falling down and it seemed like God of victory bless our victory. Finally, we won FC Seoul by 2-1. We became champion and enjoyed the joy of victory. Grandbleu and Suwon fans were acclaimed and Suwon Bigbird Stadium became holy land of victory. I‟ll never miss that time. Wow! I watched that game in my house. My neighborhoods were acclaimed and congratulated. However, next season, Suwon recorded 10th out of 15th. How was the team and tell me something about that season. I was also shock about that ranking. In May, Suwon recorded 15th out of 15th. So, coach and players were depressed and decided to change the formation. I was left wing, but I became the striker. So, it means the formation changed 4-4-2 to 4-5-1. This change was successful and got FA Cup champion. In the FA Cup final, I scored in 87 minutes when team was losing by 1-0. Ha-ha. The match went to the penalty shootout. We won 1-1<PK 5-3>! It was one of the most dramatic matches that I experienced. I heard Grandbleu impressed you. What kind of things that you receive? My last match of Suwon was the FA Cup final match that I just explained before. Some people held the placard for me and the content was “Don‟t Leave Suwon. Edu!” After the match, one fan gave to me that placard. I remember his name is Hyeon Joon. I keep in my house very careful. The other thing is about 20 fans came to the Incheon Airport and see me out. That was the biggest present for me. I heard other fans were not seeing other foreign players out. That‟s what I received the present by fans. 8 Dream of Soccer July 2011

Oh. That story makes me also be moved. Now you are in Germany. So, how are you enjoying life in Schalke? I already lived in Germany in 3 years, so now there are no problem to living now. I can speak German, so I have no problem with companies. Companies also want to know about Brazilian, so we study each other‟s language. Club also likes me so much, because they do not need translator for me. I‟m so happy and enjoying life in Schalke! I want to congratulate because Schalke beats Inter Milan. How was your feeling? I scored 2 goals in Inter Milan game in Champions League quarterfinal. My feeling was so fantastic, because Inter Milan was latest champion in Champions League! After the match, Club, Companies, My family were congratulated me that scored in Inter Milan match. It was the fantastic day of my life. Have you ever meet Cha Du Ri who is son of Cha Bum Kun? Sure. Cha Du Ri was my friend in Mainz 05! He suggested me to go Suwon Bluewings, because he said Suwon‟s coach is his father, Cha Bum Kun. That‟s why I went to Suwon Bluewings! Cha‟s family was very kind and liked me so much. Before I left to Korea, he taught me Korean and gave Korean food to experience Korean culture. I want to meet him again in Germany, but he left to Celtic, Scotland. Now, this time will be Reader‟s question time! Readers of Dream of Soccer have many questions about you, so I will introduce some best questions. First one! When were you scored more than 10 goals? In 2005-2006 and 2008, I recorded 13 goals and 12 goals in those seasons. In 2005-06 season, Bochum was in Bundesliga 2, so other teams were weaker than us. I could make more goals than before. In 2008, this year was the second year of K-League; many Medias said second year is difficult for foreign player. But, I did not care about Medias. Only care about our team‟s win. Then, I could goal more than first year. Coach and companies always supported me. Fans also supported and liked me so much, so I showed my ability as much as possible. Second! In youth, where were your position? I was left wing-back in youth. It is different as my position now. When I went to Germany, our team coach said to me to change my position left wing-back to left wing. I accepted that suggestion and practiced that position. It was not a big change, and also I thought it is my position, because left wing-back has to do overlapping and defend, but left wing almost do attack and sometimes do defend. Now, I am satisfied with my position. So, I could make goals in against with Inter Milan. Last! Why you went to K-League? Before I said, my friend, Cha Du Ri, suggested me to go K-League. But, I just wanted to experience the Korean soccer more than my friend‟s suggestion. Most German friends knew the power of Korea soccer and said Korea is the best in Asia. So, I got expectation and went to Korea. In the first match, I was surprised about many fans, and the ability of opponents. This question is the last question of interview. Will you come back to Suwon Bluewings? Umm… I hope so. I want go back to Korea, but I have to defend the contract with Schalke. After that, I can say to office that I want go back to Korea. Now, I cannot tell exactly. Thank you very much that accept interview with us. Thank you very much. I hope this magazine will be the biggest magazine. Dream of Soccer July 2011 9

UEFA Champions League Jung Bin Han

UEFA Champions League! Many soccer fans say it as „The war of the stars!‟ Many famous clubs participate in this Champions League such as Arsenal (ENG), Barcelona (ESP), Bayern (GER), Chelsea (ENG), Inter Milan (ITA), Kobenhavn (DEN), Lyon (FRA), Man. United (ENG), Marseille (FRA), AC Milan (ITA), Real Madrid (ESP), AS Roma (ITA), Schalke (GER), Shakhtar Donetsk (UKR), Tottenham (ENG), and Valencia (ESP). All of the famous teams are in this war, called „UEFA Champions League.‟ All of the world soccer fans think UEFA Champions League is the third biggest tournament after World Cup and EURO. The UEFA Champions League (usually referred to as simply the Champions League or historically as the European Cup) is an annual association football cup competition organized by UEFA since 1955 for the top football clubs in Europe. Now, Champions League becomes the biggest club competition. Of course, there is FIFA Club World Cup in every year, but that is not famous as UEFA Champions League. The UEFA Champions League started in 1955, so it became 56-year-old.

Sometimes it showed the fantastic goals that people have never seen before, however, sometimes it stained with nausea. Though, it can always happen in the soccer. People said “Nausea is also part of the game.” Soccer shows our life and emotions such as triumphs and disasters. It also shows our life and emotions. If our team got a goal, that time is the most valuable and pleased time. If our team lose a goal, that time is the most frustrated and angry time. Literally, it shows triumphs and disasters. Players and coaches also make more effort in Champions League, because it is honor of club and also can participate in FIFA Club World Cup. Also, the final of Champions League has tension as same as World Cup final. Now and forever, UEFA Champions League has to existent in the world. It shows that soccer is the best sports around the world. What a wonderful sport! I hope this will be the legend of my life. 10 Dream of Soccer July 2011

His team got the Bundesliga title in 1994 and the UEFA Cup in 1996. In 1998, he became vice-president of the DFB. At then end of the 1990s, he headed the successful bid by Germany to organize the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Beckenbauer has been married three times and has had five children, one of who, Stefan, was a professional soccer player. Beckenbauer also leave many quotes. One of the famous one is â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not the strong one that wins, the one that wins is strongâ&#x20AC;?. The quote speaks the truth in a subtle way where victory decides who is truly strong. The other famous one is "Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect." It means you have to practice as actual fight, and also actual fight as practice. I respect him because he has leadership and made an effort as possible as he can. I choose him first in biography corner because he has passion more than any other soccer players I think. 14 Dream of Soccer July 2011

The Strength of the Bundesliga JUNG BIN HAN

Do you know which league has the top of the average spectators? It is Bundesliga. The average spectators of Bundesliga are more than 40,000! It is higher than English Premier League and Spain Primera Liga. In 2011, Bundesliga become the top 3 league of Europe, and Italy Seria A become the 4th of Europe League. In 2001, Bundesliga fell down to the 4th of Europe League, but during ten years, Bundesliga changed their mind and made an effort to reconstruct their league. Bundesliga was found in 1963. It has the difference with English Premier League and Spain Primera Liga. In 1980s, Bundesliga was the period of prosperity. At that time, Bundesliga was the top of Europe League. Many fans and players have confidence and proud about Bundesliga, but in 1990s, English Premier League and Spain Primera Liga reform their league and Bundesliga became the 3rd of Europe League until 2001. However, Italy Seria A also pursue Bundesliga and finally Seria A became the 3rd of Europe League, and Bundesliga got stagnation. The Assoiciation of Bundesliga said this is the crisis of the Bundesliga. First, the association made the price of tickets go down. The cheapest ticket is only €20 (¥2,300). Second, Bundesliga changed their structure of league. One club which was in a state of pecuniary embarrassment, that team will out of Bundesliga. Now, there are 16 teams in Bundesliga. Bundesliga fans also helped the reorganization of Bundesliga. Players made an effort more than any other times. Referees did exact decisions in games. Clubs accepted fans‟ all complaints. Because of that, many new fans was formed. Finally, an average spectators of league recorded 42,100 per one game! This result is much bigger than any other leagues. For example, English Premier League has more than 35,000, Spain Primera Liga also has more than 28,000. But, these are also less than Bundesliga more than 7,000 to 14,000. As you can see the left picture, there are lots of fans are supporting their team. Isn‟t it makes you intensionally? Also, Bundesliga has been equalization. It is completely different as other leagues. So, fans cannot guess favorites. I cannot say Bundesliga is the best league of the world, but I recommend you to watch Bundesliga and feel the passion and enjoy the game! Many fans and players will show what is Bundesliga. I am very sure that Bundesliga is interesting and just feel the what it is. You will also agree about my suggestion. Thank you. 16 Dream of Soccer July 2011

Comparative Essay

English Premier League and Spain Primera Liga (La Liga) are the best leagues of around the world! Maybe many people know these leagues are most interesting leagues of Europe. So, I want to compare the difference between English Premier League and Spian Primera Liga. English Premier League started from 1888 which is the first professional league and has the oldest tradition. In 1888, it started from 12 teams, Preston got the first champion of this league. In 1892, the one league divided into two leagues which are Division 1 and Division 2. In 1923, by two regional distinctions were added to Division 3 and Division 4. In 1958, Division 3 and Division 4 were two regional distictions, but they also became as national league. So, England League had 4 perfect leagues. Then, in 1992, England Football Association changed the structure of league and now is the England Premier League. There are 20 teams in Premier League. Divison 1, 2, 3 also has 20 teams each other. Spain Primera Liga (La Liga) was founded in 1929. A total of 59 teams have competed in La Liga, nine of which have been crowned champions. It is contested by twenty teams, with the three lowest placed teams relegated to the Segunda División and replaced by the top three teams in that division. In recently, they seem like very similar, However, in totally, they had many differences. First, Premier League has many foreign players, but Primera Liga has less foreign players. For example, Arsenal has 35 foreign players and Manchester also has 24 foreign players. But, Barcelona has only 10 foreign players, Real Madrid has 15 foreign players. Second, many Premier League teams are dominated by foreign capitals, but Primera Liga teams are not. For example, Manchester City‟s owner is from UAE. However, Real Madrid‟s president is Spanish. Third, Premier League‟s average spectators are about 35,000, Primera Liga‟s average spectators are about 28,000. The difference between two leagues is about 7,000! This gab is big. However, Barcelona has more than 79,000, and Manchester United has more than 75,000. Finally, some Premier League teams do Asia Tours, but Primera Liga does not except Barcelona. Every summer, Manchester United visit to Vietnam, Malaysia, China and Korea. Their popularity is beyond our imagination. Also, this year, Liverpool has also planned to Asia Tour. Liverpool will go to Malaysia and China. At first, Liverpool want to visit Korea, but they were canceled. In La Liga, teams do not want to do Asia marketing, so they are not visiting Asia countries. As I said, Premier League and Primera Liga has many differences. Thank you for read this essay. Dream of Soccer July 2011 17

Japan Futsal Abroad

I heard Japan has great futsal popularity. I want to say what is futsal first. Futsal is same as soccer, but field and goal post is smaller, and there is no throw-in. So, I wanted to experience how popular futsal and how much fun. I found the futsal field near by my house. It took 3 minutes by foot. At the first time I went to futsal field, there were lots of people do futsal. Even children and womens played it well. I just watched it for a while and thought „I want to play with other people.‟ At that time, one person came to me and suggested to play together. I was so glad to play futsal first time, so I agreed his suggestion. His team had more than 10 people. Some people were more than 30, the others were less than 30. I was the youngest member of this team. Many people were glad to join the team. Many people asked me about many things that concerned about Korea. They were very surprised about my house, father‟s job, and my Japanese. We did stretch and pass game first. After that, we made three teams. Each team had 5 members. So, one team could get rest for a while during the other team‟s game. Finally, I participated in game!! I thought futsal is not difficult than soccer, but I missed my estimates. It was also difficult as soccer, and I had to run faster than soccer. I only did it 10 minutes, but I already tired. I could not do very well and always made pass-miss. I thought weather also effected, because it was so hot that my uniform abandoned. Fortunately, I got icecream by one kind man. After the break, I did it once more. It was really fun and I felt it is better than soccer. The more I played it, the more I enjoyed it. At that time, I recored first goal! It was nice goal. On the right side, ball came to me, and I did volley by left foot! It went to the goal net! I was really pleased and people were very surprised about that goal. I recorded second goal immediately! I was in the center circle and there were 2 defenders waited for me. I just shooted and ball went to goal net once again! I thought I am good at futsal. After finished all of the games, all team members gave me compliments. They said “You have good activity, good pass, and good shooting skills.” They wanted to see me again and I accepted the promise. After 2 weeks, I went to futsal team once again. They were very pleased to see me again. I was also glad my team members. This time I recorded five goals! 2 goals made by left foot, and 3 goals made by right foot. I also recorded 3 assists. After the second futsal abroad, I felt why Japan futsal is famous and popular in the world. They had good skills than I. Sometimes I missed the big chance, they understood all my faults. They said “I can also make mistakes.” I was impressed their good-hearted and humility. If given the chance, I want to do more futsal games. But, I think I cannot do more futsal, because my father does not want to do futsal these days. Though, I believe I can do futsal… 22 Dream of Soccer July 2011



I want to write review of this movie, „Goal!‟. This movie was made in 2005. The big story is one boy who from Mexico become the professional football player in Newcastle United of English Premier League. The story was really touching and show how professional is difficult and how can overcome a crisis. One boy whose name is Santiago Munez. He was living in Mexico. He was very good at soccer from childhood. Someday, his family go to California, USA. After 10 years, he become 20. He usually works with his father and makes money. Sometimes he makes money from Chinese Restaurant. Then, in weekend, he participates in Los Americanos Jovenes FC games. Someday, one man whose name is Glen Foi saw the game of Santiago by chance. He thought he can success in England, so he suggest him to come Newcastle United. Santiago was pleased, but he does not believe. Glen Foi wants to catch him, so he told the scouter of Newcastle to see the game. But, scouter does not come and Glen was annoyed. Santiago also does not believe him anymore. Glen called to Newcastle‟s coach and said please to meet new player. When he go back to England, he met Santiago and said please go to Newcastle. His father does not like that suggestion and annoyed. But Santiago wants to go to Newcastle. So, he makes money to buy a ticket. But, his father bought a truck from his $1200! Santiago was very angry and annoyed! Someday, his grandmother told him to go to Newcastle. She bought the ticket and say him to achieve his dream. Santiago goes to Newcastle and meet Glen again. Glen helps Santiago to enter the team. Newcastle‟s coach seems like do not have interest about him. Santiago wants to show his ability, but one company envy him. So, he cannot show his ability. Glen suggests one month for practice term. But, that is the crisis. After 3 weeks later, he can participate in second string game. He has asthma, so he has to eat antasthmatic. But, in that game, his company break it and he was so tired at that game. Coaches said get out of this team. He shocked by that news and also his great friend had to retire soccer. He said this news to his girlfriend Rose. Rose feel sorry for his news. Gabin Harris helps him to stay in this club. Also, Santiago helps him about the night club. Gabin likes clubs and womens. So, he makes many problems. But, he realized his acting is not good from Santiago and coach. He changed his mind and Gabin and Santiago become best company. Finally, he comes out into the field as substitution. His father also see that match by accident. He showed his ability as possible as he can. His father was pleased that he become football player. After the match, father was died because of heart arrest. He wants to go back to Los Angeles, but he changed his mind. Then, he participate in club‟s training. Some days later, he participated in season‟s last game against Liverpool as starting member. He recorded 1 goal and 1 assist. His goal was a nice freekick goal in the second half extra time! It was fantastic!! Many people were cheered and calling out his name. I was so impressed about that scene. I felt the effort will never betray me. Dream of Soccer July 2011 23


Jung Bin Han These days, K-League is embroiled in controversy about sold games. It was a big shock for K-League Association, teams, and fans. I am also K-League fan, so I was annoyed about that news. Japan broadcasters used this news as headlines. K-League Association took the voluntary reporting period of sold games. Until now, there is no certain incident. The prosecution found 10 players who took part in sold games. All of the players who participated in this case are draw less than â&#x201A;Š12,000,000 ($11,000). The prosecution and K-League Association will punish hard and fast to them. KLeague teams and fans require to investigate all the players. Korea medias also worried about this affair. Finally, 10 players were expelled from K-League and they cannot do soccer players anymore. Also, K-League has another problem. That is lack of broadcast matches. Broadcasting station does not want to relay K-League matches without reasons. The rates of broadcast is only 25% of all K-League matches, but in baseball, the rates of transmission is over 110%. Many people said baseball has many rest time, so stations can get more advertising expenses than soccer. Fortunately, local stations are broadcast live K-League. So, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x;s rate of broadcast will be over 35% I think. K-League also worried about the promotion and relegation. In 2010, AFC (Asian Football Confederation) said the country that has no promotion and relegation will get disadvantages about World Cup preliminaries and AFC Champions League qualifications until 2013. So, K-League Association is busy about that. Before I said, K-League has these crises, but this is the time for rehabilitation of K-League. I want to say K-League can overcome these crises. Because K-League has the power of association, teams, players, and fans. When they unite and make an effort, KLeague will become stronger than any other leagues in the world. I think it was only part of growing pains. Now, K-League was 28 years old. In 2013, K-League will become 30-year-old. K-League is the first professional league of Asia, but it is kindergarten level in comparison with European Leagues. After 2002 FIFA Korea/Japan World Cup, many clubs can use good stadiums, and players also can develop their skills and show what it is soccer. Many people said this is the crisis of K-League, but I think it is the another chance to be reconstruct the K-League. We have to think why K-League has these crises and how can we fix these problems. I do not know the solutions about these problems, but I want to help reconstruct the K-League. Thank you for reading my column. 24 Dream of Soccer July 2011
