Despite Gangwon’s desperation, there was no victory. It hasn’t won in 13 games.
Gangwon FC drew 1-1 with FC Seoul in the 23rd round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Gangneung Sports Complex at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. With the result, the 12th-ranked Suwon is now just one point behind, making the relegation battle even tighter.
Before the game, Gangwon made a big announcement. The team announced the transfer of Yang Hyun-jun, a move that seemed unlikely just two weeks ago. With the team in the relegation zone, it wasn’t easy to let go of their ace. In a fit of frustration, Yang expressed his desire to play in Europe, and the club accepted.
However, Yang was not at ease. In the club’s YouTube live broadcast before the game on the 15th, he said, “I’m excited and happy, but I have a heavy heart. I’m sorry to my teammates for not being able to fulfill my responsibilities to the end and transferring even though the team was in a difficult situation,” he said, adding that he felt responsible for the team’s difficult situation.
CEO Kim Byung-ji also praised Yang Hyun-jun, saying, “He is the future and treasure of Gangwon,” and said, “I hope the fans will give us a lot of support, and we will do our best to support the team so that there is no power gap.” He also announced that the team will resolve Yang Hyun-jun’s absence.

The goal was devastating for Seoul, who were slowly finding their footing in the buildup and organizing their attack. A few attacks were exchanged, but the first half ended without any decisive chances.
In the second half, Gangwon continued to push hard. In the third minute of the second half, Yoo intercepted the ball on a counterattack and fed Gallego. Gallego followed up with a shot, but his touch was a bit too long and it floated over the goal. Yang Hyun-joon, who did not play, was also disappointed.
Seoul also had a good chance. In the seventh minute of the second half, a pass from Willian at the back was received by Palocevic, who made a fantastic turn to beat his defender. He tried to shoot, but his weak right-footed shot was blocked by goalkeeper Lee Kwang-yeon.
As the clock ticked down, Gangwon hunkered down to protect their lead, and Seoul was repeatedly thwarted by Gangwon’s settled defense. It was Captain Osmar who saved the day for Seoul. In the 22nd minute of the second half, Lee Si-young picked up the ball from Ilyuchenko, and Osmar
