Seo Dong-hyeon (Korean: 서동현; born June 5, 1985 in Hongcheon) is a Korean football player for the Suwon FC of the K League Classic. His nickname is 'Rainmaker'.[1]

Early life[edit]

Seo Dong-hyeon was born in Gangwon-do, South Korea on June 5, 1985. He lived and went to school in Yeonpyeong, South Korea before moving to Seoul and attending Konkuk University. He was picked by the Suwon Samsung Bluewings in the first round of the 2005 K-League draft.

Career[edit]

Club career[edit]

In his first year with the Suwon Samsung Bluewings in 2006, Seo Dong-hyeon made 26 appearances and scored 2 goals. Most of his appearances came as a substitute but he was able to impress Suwon Samsung Bluewings manager Cha Bum-Kun enough to say that the youngster "has a long future at this club".

However, in 2007 He made it to the pitch only 12 times this year due toan ankle injury that took 6 months to heal. In his few appearances, he was able to net 4 goals and continued to show great improvement.

2008 is the year that will be known as the "Seo Dong-hyeon Coming Out Party". With the Suwon Samsung Bluewings in desperate need of a striker to bring in goals, Seo has done his best to calm those cries. So far this year, he has 11 goals in 21 appearances and the season is only half over.

In July 2010, he moved to Gangwon FC.

In November 2011, he was traded from Gangwon to Jeju United for forward Kim Eun-Jung.

On 21 July 2005, he scored his first career hat-trick in a 6–0 victory over Chunnam.[2]

International career[edit]

He made his debut for the South Korea national football team in a friendly at home to Jordan on 5 September 2008, coming on for the final 15 miuntes and going close to scoring in added time.

Honours[edit]

With the strong play of Seo Dong-hyeon coinciding with the first year of the Suwon Samsung Bluewings Foreign Supporters organization, the group's first official song is a tribute to Seo Dong-hyeon. Sung in South Korean, "Seo Dong-hyeon Football Genius" has been extremely popular and original creator Iain Pearce is working on a follow-up tribute to Seo Dong-hyeon.
