Club career[edit]

Song started his professional career at Brazilian club Internacional, before moving back to his homeland Korea to play for one of the powerhouses of Korean and Asian football FC Seoul.

After a stint with FC Seoul, Song went to Australia in the hope of securing an A-League contract. After trialling with Newcastle United Jets, he impressed coach Gary van Egmond enough to earn a contract with the club.

Song made his debut for the club in the away leg of their semi-final clash with rivals, Central Coast Mariners, which Newcastle lost 3–0. He played a starring role in their subsequent grand final victory over Central Coast, constantly proving a menacing threat for the Mariners' defence. Song's first senior career goal came on 19 December 2008 against Melbourne Victory. Song threaded through a sublime ball through to Jets' striker Joel Griffiths, who squared the ball back to Song to fire into the bottom corner of the net, securing 3 points on the night for the Jets.

Song made it clear that his preference was to play in Europe, although he didn't ruled out the possibility of re-signing with the Jets. On 29 March 2010, it was announced that he would trial at PSV Eindhoven, the former club of fellow Koreans Park Ji-Sung and Lee Young-Pyo.

On 28 June 2010 the 22-year-old Korean attacking midfielder signed a two-year contract with Tours FC of the French Ligue 2.

In January 2012, he returned to South Korea from the French side for K-League outfit Jeju United. On 31 January 2012, Song signed a three-year contract with Jeju on a free transfer.

Song played for South Korea U-20 at the 2006 AFC Youth Championship and at the subsequent 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup. He scored two goals against Australia to knock them out of the 2006 AFC Youth Championship.
