Hwang's Beginning As Professional Player Was Tough
Hwang said that he used to watch professional matches all the time and always dreamt of playing one.
When the opportunity came, it was a dream came true moment for him.
He made his professional debut at Seongnam FC. He said he was very fortunate to live his dream when he was young.
He said he even scored a goal on his debut game as a professional player.
He shared that he told himself that he would have a bright future ahead at that time.
But things turned out differently for him. He said his first season as a professional player was very tough.
He added he was on the bench most of the time instead of playing on the pitch.
He lost his confidence then, but later, he trained hard and developed his confidence to play on the pitch again.
Talked About Joining Gamba Osaka
In 2017 Hwang signed two year deal with Gamba Osaka.
He said adapting to the team was difficult because of cultural differences and the language barrier.
But he has a Korean teammate in that club who helped him a lot.
He said the playing style was also different as he was not used to the Japanese style of playing football.
He said it was more complex than he used to play in Korea.
He learned the style and tried to incorporate style with the style that he had developed in Korea.
His stats were impressive in the game, but the club didn’t do well at the end of the season.
Revealed Why He Chose Bordeaux
Hwang signed a four-year deal with Bordeaux in 2019. He said he moved to Europe because he wanted to learn more and become a better player.
It was a big gamble for him to move to Europe. He said he was aware that he could learn more from the club's staff and players.
He said it was difficult for him to communicate with the players as he was not good at speaking French and English.
So he worked hard on his communication skills. But the club's staff and players helped him a lot, making it easier to adapt to the club easily.
