Kim Shin-wook (Hangul김신욱; Korean pronunciation: [kim.ɕi.nuk̚]; born 14 April 1988) is a South Korean footballer who plays as a striker for Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.

Club career

Kim spent his youth training either as a central defender or a defensive midfielder, but upon suggestion by his manager, he changed his position into a forward a few weeks after signing his first professional contract with Ulsan Hyundai FC.[2] At first, he struggled to adjust in the new position but lately he has been proving his worth by being one of the top forwards in the Korean football league. His improvement as a striker the last few years is evidenced by his ever-increasing goal scoring record.

Kim was a very influential figure during Ulsan's road to the 2012 AFC Champions League winning title. Kim performed at a top level in all of the 13 matches he played in and ended the tournament with 6 goals scored. With such performance, he was nicknamed by "Attack on Titan" or "Chinook"(Boeing CH-47 Chinook).[3]

International career

On October 2014, he and his teammates were awarded with a conscription exemption after winning the gold medal at the 2014 Asian Games.[4]

In May 2018 he was named in South Korea's preliminary 28 man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[5]

Personal life

Kim is known to be a devout Christian who reads the bible before games and is nicknamed "church brother" by his teammates. He sometimes participates in evangelizing activities.[6]
