PLAYER OF THE YEAR JOO Min-kyu
(Jeju United) At the age of 31, the striker is not going to get that international debut, but he has scored goals wherever he has been. His eight goals helped Jeju United to promotion last season but, this time around, his 22 strikes took the islanders into fourth spot. MANAGER OF THE YEAR KIM Do-kyuk
(Suwon FC) Suwon FC had spent only one season in the top tier before but, under coach Kim, managed to finish fifth – one place above Suwon Bluewings, the traditional power in the city just south of Seoul. YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR SEOL Young-woo
(Ulsan Hyundai) The 23-year-old left-back played a major role in Ulsan’s push for the title. Calm in the tackle and in possession, it was no surprise when he was named Young Player of the Year. A senior international debut for the Taegeuk Warriors can’t be too far away.
