27 Season: Founded in 1995, Suwon Samsung was demoted to the second division for the first time in 27 seasons after participating in the first season in 1996.

Suwon appointed Yeom Ki-hoon, its playing coach, as its new coach after many twists and turns.

35 Runs: Gwangju FC has scored 38 goals in this year’s event. It is tying with Jeonbuk Hyundai to rank No. 1 in the minimum number of lost goals.

Manager Lee Jung-hyo’s attack soccer was to weaken the opponent’s offense by making primitive moves such as running more.
