The Korea Professional Football Association announced on July 3, “Out of the 12 nominees for the award, Kim received the most votes from the Technical Study Group (TSG) members, beating out Chun Sung-hoon (Incheon), Bae Joon-ho (Daejeon), and Lee Han-beom (Seoul).”
This is the first time Kim Joo-chan, who was born in 2004, has won the Young Player Award after making his K League 1 debut this year.
