Sex-Tape ¦ Why South Korea FA Suspends Striker Hwang Ui-jo 7-Weeks Before Asian Cup

Published on

South Korea Football Association (KFA) has suspended a Striker, Hwang Ui-jo, seven weeks before the commencement of Asian Cup over allegations he illegally filmed an ex-girlfriend.

Hawng Ui-jo is accused of filming a sexual encounter with the former partner on his phone without consent, the allegation Hawng has denied.

On why the player has been suspended just weeks before Asian Cup, Lee Youn-nam, the KFA’s ethics committee chairman Said, “Until a definitive conclusion is drawn, we have decided to exclude Hwang from the national team,” a KFA statement said.

Lee Youn-nam also told reporters that national players must conduct themselves “with a high degree of morality and responsibility”.

“Considering the fact that the player is being investigated as a suspect, it is difficult for him to carry out normal national team activities, Football fans have high expectations for the national team, (so) we have deemed it inappropriate to select Hwang Ui-jo for the national team.” Lee said.

Hwang played for South Korea in two World Cup qualifiers this month, scoring a penalty against Singapore, but the Korea Football Association on Tuesday suspended him pending the outcome of police investigations.

The 31-year-old remains able to play for English second-tier club Norwich and scored in a 3-2 defeat at Watford on Tuesday.


The Asian Cup kicks off in Qatar on January 12, with South Korea opening their campaign against Bahrain three days later.
