Ki Sung-yueng, returning to a drama after 3 years to his wife, “I have to help a lot when I retire” [Kagoshima after-scene]
“When I retire, I have to help my wife a lot.”
Ki Sung-yong (35), 토토사이트 who recently met with reporters in Kirishima, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan, FC Seoul’s second winter training camp, showed his affection for his wife, actress Han Hye-jin, at the end of the interview.
At the end of last year, who is in his twilight years as a player, he flew to Wales, England, during the off-season, and completed the UEFA Class B license course. He still boasts a high level of performance, but as he is in his late 30s in Korean age, he is faithful to his schedule with his future in mind after his retirement.
Often, when an athlete opens up to a second life, his or her family also shares the same track. In general, it is because the family often moves according to the life trajectory of the ‘active player’. In 2013, Ki Sung-yong became a hot topic when he announced a surprise marriage to Han Hye-jin, an ‘8-year-old’, who was active as a representative European Taegeuk warrior in Korea. Han Hye-jin was also loved by the public not only as an actress, her main job, but also through her variety programs. Nonetheless, like her wives of other players, Han Hye-jin, a soccer player, has virtually stopped her activities for her husband, who is in her late twenties, her prime age, and moved to England to support her, drawing her attention.
Ki Sung-yong said, “At that time, my wife really suffered a lot because of me. Wasn’t the team I moved to mostly outskirts (in England)? I wouldn’t have had to do anything… ” he stammered. She also added, “Of course, in retrospect, there were many good things. I spend a lot of time with my family abroad, but I also spent a lot of time (with my wife), so it’s a good memory.”
Finally, as Ki Sung-yong organized his life in Europe in the summer of 2020 and returned to the K-League through Seoul, the family’s life in Korea began in earnest. Han Hye-jin will return to the drama in three years by playing the role of Lee Seo-jin in the new JTBC Saturday drama ‘Shin Sung-han, Divorce’ next month. Ki Sung-yong once sent his wife’s affectionate support, such as sending coffee or tea to the set during filming. He said, “My wife is working for the first time in a while, and since we are doing activities at the same time (in our main job), it seems that we are more respectful and more concerned about each other. When I retire, I will have to help more.” He said, “Her wife told me to play football as long as possible. I don’t know if it’s because I’m out of the house,” she laughs.
The same is true of his daughter, Shion-yang, who turned 9 in Korean age this year, wanting Ki Sung-yueng to continue his active career for a longer period of time. Last year, Shion Yang took her father’s hand and hit the ground as FC Seoul Escort Kids. The usual scenes of her father and daughter kicking a ball and enjoying themselves are also uploaded on social media. Ki Seong-yong said, “(When escorting kids), when Xion held her hand and entered the arena, she really liked it. In fact, she treats me like her friend,” she said.
In the 2023 season, Ki Sung-yong is also a key agent in the Seoul tactics led by coach Ahn Ik-soo. He said, “Honestly, as I get older, it is true that I think, ‘Can I play well? However, he said, “The next year was better than when I returned to Korea, and last year was better.”
