Kim Young-kwon, who played as a defender scoring two consecutive goals in the World Cup and held a goal celebration each time thinking of his family, finally stood at the top of the K-League.

Kim Young-kwon never forgot to thank coach Hong Myung-bo, who had been his mentor for 15 years since the 2009 Youth World Cup.

[김영권/2023 K리그1 MVP : “(올 시즌에)경기력이 안 좋았던 시기가 잠깐 있었습니다. (그때) 감독님께서 한두 경기 못 하면 어떠냐고 (해주셨어요.) 그때 속이 좀 뻥 뚫리면서….”]

Director Hong Myung-bo won the Coach of the Year Award for two consecutive years, overcoming fierce competition from Gwangju Lee Jeong-hyo and Pohang Kim Ki-dong.
