Paik Seung-ho Facts

  1. In December 2009, he participated in the inaugural edition of the Korea-Catalonia Youth Cup held in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, as a member of the South Korean under-14 national team. He was offered a contract by the youth system of Spanish titans FC Barcelona due to his impressive performance in that tournament.
  2. However, Paik had already been scouted by Suwon Samsung Bluewings Academy, the youth system of the Suwon Samsung Bluewings, a top-tier professional soccer club based in Suwon, South Korea.
  3. Hence, his youth career began in 2010 when, as a 13-year-old, he joined Suwon Samsung Bluewings Academy. Shortly after this though, in an incredibly gracious gesture, Suwon Samsung Bluewings decided to send Paik to Spain so that he could train at one of the best, if not the best, finishing schools in the soccer world.
  4. So, later in 2010, he joined the youth system of FC Barcelona. In February 2013, FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) suspended Paik and 5 other players from the youth system of FC Barcelona for violating an article of FIFA‘s rules.
  5. This meant that he could not participate in the club’s official matches until January 2016. Later that year, he was promoted to the senior team of FC Barcelona Atlètic, the reserve team of FC Barcelona.
  6. In South Korea’s pre-quarterfinal match of the 2022 edition of the FIFA World Cup, against 5-time champions Brazil, Paik scored his team’s only goal in a 4-1 defeat. It was just the 3rd goal of his senior-level international career for South Korea.
