Kang Soo-il (Hangul강수일; born 15 July 1987) is a Korean footballer who currently plays for Jeju United in the K League Classic.

He was awarded the MVP in the 2008 season of Reserve League.

Career[edit]

Born to a Korean mother and an American GI father, Kang dropped out of University to join Incheon United in 2007 in order to earn money to support his family after his mother suffered a back injury.[1] he moved to Jeju United in 2011, and spent the 2014 season on loan at Pohang Steelers.

Eligible to play for both South Korea and United States, Kang opted to represent his country of birth.[1] Called up to make his international debut for South Korea against UAE in June 2015, hours before the kick-off he was forced to withdraw after failing a doping test.[1] He blamed his testing positive for anabolic steroid methyltestosterone on his use of moustache-growing cream. He did not contest the charge and accepted an automatic 15-game ban from the K-League.[1]
