Qatar Six, the second main character is Kim Young-kwon.
Catharsis is what football is all about. Beyond the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup, we yearn for another influential catharsis. As the saying goes, ‘you see as much as you know’, once you know, you can enjoy the World Cup more immersed in it.
The protagonist of the story to feel the second catharsis of ‘Qatar Six’ is Kim Young-kwon, the defender of the Korean national football team. At the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, I heard the sarcastic ‘automatic door’, but four years later at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, it was transformed into a ‘wailing wall’. In addition, he is responsible for Korea’s last line until the Qatar World Cup 2022. Kim said, “I believe that the World Cup in Qatar will be my last stage,” and he is determined to remain scoreless. .
His football life shows the saying ‘Don’t be shy about human things’. Meet the story of Kim Young-kwon, who risked his life on football while doing manual labour.
