Kim Junsu, Thunderbolt Shot… Made the Winning Goal!

Two-Top with Kim Hyunjoong, Made Crucial Plays All Over the Field

(Gave) FC MEN Its First Win… Seized the MVP Award

Male group JYJ’s Kim Junsu showed off abilities in soccer that does not fall behind his abilities in singing. He exploded the winning shot (into the net) in the first game of Peace Star Cup.

In the 2011 Peace Star Cup Entertainers Soccer Tournament that was held in the Suwon World Cup Secondary Stadium of Kyungkido, the idol soccer team FC MEN collected its first win against Super Stars through Captain Kim Junsu’s winning goal, 1-0. FC Men, which has newly formed this year, has especially gathered attention because a host of idol stars are participating as members. The stadium of that day was packed with about 1500 Korean Wave fans which included those who came from abroad such as Japan and Taiwan and made one feel through his skin the popularity of the stars.

In the game, FC MEN put up Kim Junsu and Kim Hyunjoong as two-top. In particular, Kim Junsu used his great speed to aggressively weave (through the other players) and created many crucial chances. The male group B2ST’s Lee Kikwang, who was in charge of distributing the ball as a mid fielder, and Yoon Doojoon, also stood out in their soccer skills. In particular, Yoon Doojoon pulled off very high-level techniques freely such as “placing the wrong leg” and “cruip turn,” no worse than a professional player. (T/N: The original words for these soccer tricks are 헛다리짚기 and 크루이프턴—the are jargons, I apologize.) The play proceeded as a unilateral attack by FC MEN which received the overwhelming support of the fans. However, the goal would not come easily. 3 minutes into the second half, directly facing the “goal area,” Kim Junsu caught the fleeting chance Kim Junsu, in the intense situation, pulled out the first goal with a thunderbolt shoot after a short dribble. Hugging his colleagues, Kim Junsu enjoyed the ecstasy of the first goal.

Super Stars had its Captain Jung Joonho who became a newlywed recently, and Im Daeho, Lee Jongwon, Oh Manseok and others eyeing a counterattack, but lost crucial chances in the second half and the game finished as 1-0. As the game’s MVP, the hero of the winning goal Kim Junsu was picked.
