Movement to build a statue of Chung Yong-hwan in full swing

There is a growing movement to build a statue of “Busan soccer legend” Chung Yong-hwan. Jung played for Daewoo Royals for 11 years in the 1980s and 1990s and served as a coach and technical director of the Busan City Football Association before passing away in 2015.

 The Jeong Yong-hwan Football Dreamers Scholarship Foundation announced on Feb. 30 that it will hold a one-day hope to raise funds for the statue from 4 to 10 p.m. on the 18th floor of the Beomil-ro Social Pension Wedding Hall in Busanjin-gu, Busan. The event, which was started in 2004 as a fan club for Chung Yong-hwan, will be held in honor of the 20th anniversary of the scholarship organization, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and will offer unlimited lunch and drinks for an admission fee of 30,000 won. Thirty members of the Jangguk will prepare seven to eight different Chinese dishes, 토토사이트 추천 including shrimp, bulgogi, five-spice jangyuk, and jellyfish cold cuts.

 All proceeds will be used to build a statue of Jung Yong-hwan. The statue of Jung Yong-hwan will be erected in a sports complex that will be built in the current Gijang-gun solar amusement park. On the day, Lotte Giants legend Park Jung-tae, an MBC commentator, will also sell autographed balls and autographed bats, with all proceeds going to the statue’s construction.

 Song Chun-yeol, chairman of the scholarship, said, “I am happy that the statue, which was a dream of ours 20 years after its establishment, is being visibly promoted.” “It is very meaningful that people from all walks of life who love soccer are gathering together to commemorate Coach Jung Yong-hwan,” he added.

 Meanwhile, the scholarship organization is in talks with Busan IPark to raise money for the statue by selling food prepared by members at Gudeok Stadium.
