Although Son Heung-min may be the star Korean football player known around the world, the player that has given the most joy to Korean football fans and the nation is probably Hwang Ui-jo.

Currently playing for FC Girondins de Bordeaux, Hwang Ui-jo is back in Korea to play in the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifying round.

During his month-long stay in his home country, he will have the newly launched Mercedes-Benz S 400 d 4MATIC to drive around in – sponsored by Han Sung Motor Co.

Han Sung Motors held a special ceremony to handover the keys to Hwang Ui-jo at the Han Sung Motor Cheongdam Showroom on 17 June.

The event also featured a fan signing session with gifts such as national team uniforms and official balls, and with Han Sung Motor executives and employees in attendance. Customers collecting their new S-Class were also given a limited Han Sung Motor Co package.

South Korea advanced to the final qualifying round by finishing first in the group’s second Asian qualifying round for the 2022 Qatar World

Cup at Goyang Stadium. Hwang Ui-jo scored two goals in the second qualifying round.

“Han Sung Motor is supporting Korea’s 2022 Qatar World Cup with a vehicle to support Korea’s national soccer team player Hwang Ui-jo. I hope that he will continue to perform well on the European stage when he returns to his French team.” said Ulf Ausprung, CEO of Han Sung Motor.
