Kim Kee-hee (Hangul김기희; Korean pronunciation: [kim.ɡi.ɦi] or [kim] [ki.ɦi]; born 13 July 1989) is a South Korean footballer who mainly plays as a centre back for Shanghai Greenland Shenhua in the Chinese Super League. He can also be fielded as a defensive midfielder.

Club career

Kim initially played University League at Hongik University from 2008 to 2010. Kim was then drafted in the second round of the 2011 K-League draft by Daegu FC.[2] Kim made his professional debut on 5 March 2011, playing the full 90 minutes of Daegu's opening game of the 2011 K-League season against Gwangju FC, which ended in a 2–3 loss for Daegu FC.[3] On 26 September 2012, Kim joined the newly promoted Qatar Stars League club Al-Sailiya on a loan deal.[4] Kim joined fellow K-League side Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in 2013 and would help the team to win two successive K-League titles. On 19 February 2016, Kim moved to Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua from Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors for a reported transfer fee of US$6 million. Kim’s agent had described the deal as the “biggest transfer in Korean history.” [5] On 5 March 2016, he made his debut for the club in a 1-1 draw against Yanbian Funde.

International career

In 2011, Kim was selected for the South Korea U-23 national team that participated in the 2012 King's Cup, an annual tournament held in Thailand.[6]

In 2012, Kim won the bronze medal with South Korea U-23 in the 2012 London Olympics, which was the first Olympic medal ever in Korean football history, and he was granted exemption to two years of mandatory military service like the rest of the team.[7][8]
