Seo Jung-Won (born December 17, 1970 in Gwangju, South Korea) is a football player and coach from South Korea. Nicknamed nalssen dori (speedy Gonzales-equivalent in Korean) in his native Korea, he was even offered a contract from Barcelona in his early twenties which he turned down.[1] As of 2006, he played forward and midfielder for Ried, a club in the Austrian Bundesliga. Seo moved to Ried from Austria Salzburg in June 2005.

He debuted in FC Seoul as then known LG Cheethas in 1994 and also served as player at Suwon Samsung Bluewings in South Korea from 1998 to 2004. He was a member of the South Korea national football team at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, the 1990, 1994, 1998 Asian Games, and the 1998 FIFA World Cup. His contract with SV Ried expired in May 2006. He was named the player of the year (Jahreswertung aller Spieler) of the 2005–2006 season in the Austrian Bundesliga[2]

After South Korea national football team's head coach Pim Verbeek resigned, along with his former national team teammate, close friend, and the current South Korea national football team's assistant coach Hong Myung-Bo was made on the list for the vacant head coaching job for the South Korea national football team.
