Moon Seon-min (Hangul: 문선민; Hanja: 文宣民; born 9 June 1992) is a South Korean footballer who plays as a midfielder for Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC.[2] He became the first football player from South Korea to play in Allsvenskan, the highest league in Sweden.[3]

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

After graduating high school in 2010, Moon took part in the Nike, Inc. sponsored competition "The Chance" in early 2011. He became one of the eight winners who got to move to England and join the Nike Academy that summer.[4][5]

Östersunds FK[edit]

Moon was signed by third tier Swedish club Östersunds FK in 2012, after their English manager Graham Potter spotted him while he was in his homeland to scout Ghanaian David Accam, who also was training with the Nike Academy at the time.[6] The club got promoted to the second tier Superettan, but after the 2013 season Moon decided to move back home to South Korea due to homesickness. However, halfway into the preseason of 2014, he returned to Östersund and signed with the club again.[7] After that year, he received a player of the year award for his performances.[8]

Djurgårdens IF[edit]

On 17 July 2015, Moon was signed by Allsvenskan side Djurgårdens IF. The club had originally planned to sign him for the start of the 2016 Allsvenskan, but after a season-ending injury to their right winger Haris Radetinac they decided to loan him from Östersund for the rest of the year with an option to buy at the end of the loan.[9]

Incheon United[edit]

He left the club on 25 November 2016, when his contract was terminated.[10] Moon returned to South Korea and he eventually signed for Incheon United.

Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors[edit]

On January 15, 2019, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors officially signed Moon Sun-min. Moon Sun-min came to Jeonbuk as he was traded against Lee Jae-sung of Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.[11]

International career[edit]

At the 2018 FIFA World Cup

In May 2018 he was named in South Korea's preliminary 28 man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[12]
