Yeom Ki-hoon, who was the rookie of the year in 2006, has written K-League history with his sophisticated left foot.

After recording the most assists in his career, surpassing Shin Tae-yong in 2015, he has continued an unrivaled record streak, and his 17 free kick goals are tied for first place all-time with Eninho.

His career tally of 77 goals and 110 assists was just three goals away from his first all-time 80s and 80s. 메이저놀이터
