Jang Hyun-soo (Hangul: 장현수; Korean pronunciation: [tɕɐŋ.çʌn.su]; born 28 September 1991) is a South Korean player and currently playing for Al-Hilal.

Club career[edit]

In January 2012, Jang Hyun-soo signed a new contract with FC Tokyo.[citation needed] In January 2014, he signed a new contract with Guangzhou R&F FC in China. He returned to Tokyo FC in July 2017.[citation needed]

International career[edit]

In May 2018 he was named in South Korea's preliminary 28 man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[2] Jang was criticized by South Korean football legends such as Lee Young-pyo and Ahn Jung-hwan for his perceived poor performance in the group match against Mexico.[3] Jang conceded a penalty and was also involved in Mexico's second goal, scored by Javier Hernández.[4]

On 1 November 2018, Jang received a lifetime ban and a 30 million won (26800$) fine from the national team after he admitted to falsifying records related to his military exemption. Jang had previously earned an exemption by winning gold at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon.[5]

Jang Hyun-soo, who received a military exemption for his gold medal advantage at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, has been expelled from the national team permanently due to his manipulation of documentary evidence on his volunteer activities.[6]
