This is a Korean name; the family name is Shin.

Shin Young-Rok (born 27 March 1987 in Seoul) is a South Korean football forward who plays for Jeju United in the K-League. He usually plays as a centre forward or a striker. Shin is renowned for his strength in holding up the ball, excellent close control and dribbling skills, aerial ability, and power and accuracy of his shooting.

Cha Bum-Kun, the most prolific South Korea striker of all time, has praised his precision in penalty area which he claims is better than his during his days as a footballer.

He was the top scorer and MVP at the U-19 Qatar International Tournament, held in 2006.

He joined Bursaspor in January 2009.

While at Bursaspor Shin scored his first goal in only his second full match for the club against Gençlerbirliği on 8 February 2009.[1] In spite of enjoying moderate success with Bursaspor, Shin's short career in Turkey came to an abrupt end when he walked out on his club due to contract violations (disputed between the player and club). Despite threats from Bursaspor, Shin returned clubless to South Korea and signed with FC Tom Tomsk at the end of December, 2009.[2][3] However, the contract problem with his former club prevented him from joining or playing for Tom Tomsk.

On 28 January 2011 Shin completed a move to Jeju United for an undisclosed fee.[4]

On 8 May 2011, Shin entered the game against Daegu at the 82nd minute. After chipping in a shot just before the end, he fell down on the pitch, suffering a heart attack. Medical staff immediately provided cardiopulmonary resuscitation on site. Once he started breathing again, he was quickly taken to a local hospital, where he remained uncouncious. After 50 days in coma he miraculously woke up and was transferred to a hospital in Seoul, where he is currently receiving further diagnosis and treatment.[5]
