Director Kim Won-hyeong said, “I’m having a hard time (to give advice). That said, I don’t have a long coaching career, and Choi Won-ho has the experience of acting as a first-team coach before me.” It happened with us first, but it’s probably the first game, so I think (coach Wonho Choi) will pay a lot of attention,” he laughed.토토사이트
