Park Joo-Ho (Korean: 박주호; born 16 January 1987 in Seoul) is a South Korean football player currently playing for 1. FSV Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga. As captain, he played for South Korea national under-20 football team in 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada.
Park began his professional career by Mito HollyHock in the J. League Division 2. He played there for one year and transferred to Kashima Antlers in the J. League Division 1. At the end of the 2009 season he won the championship title with his club. He then transferred to Júbilo Iwata.
In June 2011, Park Joo-Ho signed a four-year contract with Swiss Super League club Basel. In July 2011, he played with his new club in the Uhrencup and won the tournament. He played his League debut on 20 August 2011 in the 3:1 away defeat against FC Luzern. He has since established himself as Basel's first choice left back, and helped his team become the first Swiss club to advance to the knockout stages of a UEFA Champions League. At the end of the 2011–12 season, Park won the Double, the League Championship title and the Swiss Cup with the club.
The following season Basel had to rotate their players a lot because they played twenty European games, Champions League qualifiers and Europa League. Park lost his first-choice place in their defense, but still came to 21 League matches. Park scored his first league goal for Basel on 21 April 2013, in the 2–2 away draw against Thun. At the end of the Swiss Super League season 2012–13, Park won the Championship title and was Swiss Cup runner up with Basel. In the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League, Basel advanced to the semi-finals, there being matched against the reigning UEFA Champions League holders Chelsea, but they were beaten 2–5 on aggregate.
On 18 January 2010, he made his first international cap for South Korea at the friendly match against Finland. In May 2012, Park was recalled to the national team for their World Cup qualifying matches against Qatar and Lebanon.
