My role as captain is to lift all three trophies next year, including the FA Cup trophy, the only remaining trophy. I will do my best and move forward together with my teammates,” he said, solidifying his aspirations and determination.
Park Yong-woo, who is already in his 6th season in Ulsan, will take on the second vice-captain position. Park Yong-woo, who served as vice-captain in 2019, will join the captaincy again after more games and experiences in Ulsan. Park Yong-woo, who played a total of 31 league games last season and played a significant role in Ulsan’s first K-League 1 championship in 17 years, will show greater and deeper influence and skills as a captain this time.
Park Yong-woo, who joined the captaincy after four seasons, said, “Not only have I reached the senior level of the team, but I am also one of the players who has been in contact with the club’s history for the longest time. I will do my best,” he said. 메이저놀이터

Although it has only been one season since joining Ulsan, Lee Gyu-seong, who played in 31 league games last season by showing more performance than anyone else last season, said, “Why didn’t you return on loan sooner?” I believe that I have been given an important role thanks to the trust of the coaching staff, fellow players and fans. I will do my best to successfully complete the first captaincy of my professional life.”
