Kim Shin-wook (Korean김신욱, pronounced [kim.ɕi.nuk̚]; born 14 April 1988) is a South Korean professional footballer who plays as a striker for Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.

Club career[edit]

Kim spent his youth training either as a central defender or a defensive midfielder, but upon suggestion by his manager, he changed his position into a forward a few weeks after signing his first professional contract with Ulsan Hyundai FC.[1] At first, he struggled to adjust in the new position but lately he has been proving his worth by being one of the top forwards in the Korean football league. His improvement as a striker the last few years is evidenced by his ever-increasing goal scoring record.

Kim was a very influential figure during Ulsan's road to the 2012 AFC Champions League winning title. Kim performed at a top level in all of the 13 matches he played in and ended the tournament with 6 goals scored. With such performance, he was nicknamed by "Attack on Titan" or "Chinook".[2]

On 8 July 2019 Kim joined Chinese Super League club Shanghai Greenland Shenhua F.C. and was reunited with his manager at Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, Choi Kang-hee.[3] He would make his debut in a league game against Hebei China Fortune F.C. where he also scored his first goal for the club in a 2-1 defeat.[4] After that game Kim quickly established himself as an integral member of the team and he would personally score 10 goals in 15 games as the club moved away from the relegation zone and went on to win the 2019 Chinese FA Cup.[5]

International career[edit]

On October 2014, he and his teammates were awarded with a conscription exemption after winning the gold medal at the 2014 Asian Games.[6]

In May 2018 he was named in South Korea's preliminary 28 man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Kim is known to be a devout Christian who reads the bible before games and is nicknamed "church brother" by his teammates. He sometimes participates in evangelizing activities.[8]
