The Korea Football Association (KFA) announced the list of new directors at 10:00 am on the 3rd at the multipurpose meeting room on the 2nd floor of the Korea Football Association Soccer Hall in Shinmun-ro, Seoul.
A new board of directorsㅋㅋㅋ벳 was formed in about a month after the amnesty in March. Kim Jeong-bae (former Vice Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism), Han Jun-hee (soccer commentator), Lee Geun-ho (professional players council president (male)), Ji So-yeon (professional players council president (female)), and Wiwon-seok (former editor-in-chief of Sports Seoul) were newly selected. .
The most notable thing in this reorganization plan is that the existing senior vice president-executive director system was eliminated and a full-time vice president was newly appointed. KFA appointed Vice Chairman Kim Jung-bae (former 2nd Vice Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism). Chairman Chung Mong-gyu said, “One of the new changes through this reorganization of the board of directors is the full-time vice chairman system. Vice Minister Kim Jeong-bae has been in charge of culture and sports for a long time. He believes that he will be able to further enhance the association’s capabilities because he has a wealth of experience. think,” he said.
Vice Chairman Kim Jung-bae said, “I think it’s time for a change in the Korea Football Association. I joined at such an important time, and I hope it will be of some help. I will work hard so that my experience of working in the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism for 30 years can be put to good use.” .

It seems that it is time for a change in the Korea Football Association. I’m participating in this important time, and I hope it helps a little bit. I will work hard to put my 30 years of experience in the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to good use. I grouped the things I want to do and the things I want to do into 3 things.
First, let’s take a good look at the association to see if there is anything to be reorganized. We will make work efficiency increase through internal maintenance. Second, we will strengthen communication. It is said that the reason why people get sick is because there is a blockage. The same goes for organizations. In order for the organization to move vigorously, we will ensure smooth communication within the association and this will ensure unobstructed communication with the outside world. The third is the expansion of the association’s role. The important thing in soccer is securing space and creating it. The goal Son Heung-min scored in the last Liverpool game also came from creating space.
One is the K-League promotion and relegation system. Currently, Korean football is divided into 7 divisions. In 2013, it was divided into parts 1 and 2, and the promotion system was implemented, followed by parts 3 to 7. I know that a system that can rise to the top in the lower league like England is being promoted in 2033. We will work diligently to build this system.
I think the sports industry will take its place on this foundation if the lift system is well built. Once the lift platform is in place, you will want to learn from better equipment, better facilities, and talented instructors. We will work with other organizations so that the sports industry can grow together.
The Football Association is at an important time in many ways. The U-20 World Cup, Women’s World Cup, Asian Games and Asian Cup are ahead. Some things need to restore trust. I think you can reap good results if you work hard. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this important time.
[Hereinafter, Vice Chairman Kim Jeong-bae’s Q&A]
Q. The executive director position is gone. It is a position where the executive director has to fight while doing a lot of external activities, so will he focus only on the inside
? I plan to manage and operate each field.
Q. Did you have any concerns after receiving the offer?
A. I didn’t worry too much. If you are a Korean man, you must have enjoyed soccer in many places for a long time. I also kicked the ball until Corona. I have been in administration for over 30 years, and I gladly accepted the proposal of the Football Association because I love soccer. The mind is ready to work with excitement.
Q. There is a saying that the reorganization took place because the chairman did not speak bitterly. You said you would look into the internal organization, but do you have any plans for reorganization?
A. There seems to be no single criterion for any one. Depending on the situation and variables, it should take the form that is desirable for that situation. As we begin our work, we will try to identify the causes that can cause various problems within the association and resolve them as soon as possible.
