WAGS vs WAGS

Yesterday wasn’t the greatest day to be a South Korean supporter. A total shellacking from a classy Argentina side left qualification for the second round finally balanced and fans all over the Republic chewing their fingernails with worry.

Don’t despair, Korea fans, we here at EAiSA have something we hope will take your mind off the football for a little while and leave you feeling rested and content.

In association with Cass Beer, the freshness you deserve, and Jinro Soju, who wants to remember what happened last night anyway, EAiSA bring you a Korean remake of a Dustin Hoffman classic, WAGS vs WAGS.

The line-ups today:

1. Ahn Jung-Hwan and Lee Hye-Won
2. Lee Dong-Gook and Lee Soo-Jin
3. Jung Sung-Ryong and Im Mi-Jung
4. Kim Jung-Woo and Lee Yeun-Doo
5. Kim Nam-Il and Kim Bo-Min

 

The Rules: The girls go head-to-head based on the achievements of their dreamy hunks of men over 3 round of breathtaking action.

First Round: Who has scored the most goals per game for Korea?

Loser Bonus Round: Who has the most caps per year since they started professional football?

Semi-finals: Who has travelled the globe the most in their career?

Final: Which player has the best nickname?

The Draw: Tension mounting as the numbers have gone into the bag. First out…Number 2, Lee Dong-Gook and Lee Soo-Jin will play…Number 4, Kim Jung-Woo and Lee Yeun-Doo. Next up…Number 1, Ahn Jung-Hwan and Lee Hye-Won will play…Number 3, Jung Sung-Ryong and Im Mi-Jung…a tough draw there for Jung. Which means Number 5, Kim Nam-Il and Kim Bo-Min get a bye to the semi-finals where they will meet the winner of the Loser Bonus Round.

First Round

Seconds away for the First Round: Who has scored the most goals per game for Korea?

 
 Lee Dong-Gook and Lee Soo-Jin versus  Kim Jung-Woo and Lee Yeun-Doo

An easy win here for Lee Dong-Gook. The striker has scored 25 goals in 84 appearances compared to midfielder Kim Jung-Woo’s 4 in 57.

Lee Soo-Jin goes into the semi-final!

 
Ahn Jung-Hwan and Lee Hye-Won versus Jung Sung-Ryong and Im Mi-Jung

Jung Sung-Ryong falls at the first hurdle. Not too much of a surprise that the goalie hasn’t scored in his 18 apperances so Ahn’s record of 17 in 71 takes him through.

Lee Hye-Won goes into the semi-final!

     
Kim Nam-Il and Kim Bo-Min Bye    

 

Loser Bonus Round

A fascinating first round but who will the fourth semi-finalist be? Let’s head straight to the Loser Bonus Round: Who has the most caps per year since they started professional football?

     
Kim Jung-Woo and Lee Yeun-Doo versus Jung Sung-Ryong and Im Mi-Jung

Another disaster for Jung Song-Ryong. Both he and Kim Jung-Woo started their professional careers in 2003 and Jung has only amassed 18 caps in that time compared to Kim’s 57.

Lee Yeun-Doo goes into the semi-final and Im Mi-Jung is out!

EAiSA: Mi-Jung, how does it feel to go out of the competition so early?

IMJ: Well, you know, I’m gutted. Sick as a parrot. I gave it 120% but it wasn’t enough. Gutted.

EAiSA: Indeed, Mi-Jung. Better luck next time.

IMJ: Thanks, EAiSA.

 

Semi-Finals

So, into the semi-finals we go and we have some exciting match-ups. The question on everybodies lips is; Who has travelled the globe the most in their career?

 
Lee Dong-Gook and Lee Soo-Jin versus Ahn Jung-Hwan and Lee Hye-Won

Lee Dong-Gook was looking hopeful here having spent time in both Germany and England but he has come up against a master in Ahn Jung-Hwan. Spells in Italy, Japan, France, Germany and now China seal the deal.

Lee Hye-Won goes into the final!

 
Kim Jung-Woo and Lee Yeun-Doo versus Kim Nam-Il and Kim Bo-Min

54 games for Nagoya Grampus in Japan came close to winning it for Kim Jung-Woo but, with spells in Holland, Japan and Russia, Kim Nam-Il has amassed 72 appearances for the win.

Kim Bo-Min goes into the final!

EAiSA: Soo-Jin, you must be disappointed to have met Ahn Jung-Hwan and Lee Hye-Won in the semis?

LSJ: Well, for me, you have to bet the best at some stage to win and we didn’t perform today. We set our stall out well but didn’t have the quality.

EAiSA: You have a 3rd/4th place game to look forward to now, is that any consolation?

LSJ: We’ll give it our all but we’re sad to have missed out on the big prize.

 

3rd/4th Play-off

Not a place anyone wants to be but a chance for each team to go out in style. The big question today; which player has spent more time with the army team, Gwangju Sangmu Phoenix?

 
Kim Jung-Woo and Lee Yeun-Doo versus Lee Dong-Gook and Lee Soo-Jin

Although currently a member of Gwangju it is only Kim Jung-Woo’s first season and all the saluting in the world won’t help him beat Lee Dong-Gook’s 46 appearances

Lee Soo-Jin takes the third place spot!

 

The Grand Final

EAiSA: Bo-Min, are you nervous today about going up against the quality of Ahn Jung-Hwan and Lee Hye-Won?

KBM: Not nervous, no. Of course we respect them and know they’ll be a tough side to beat but we are strong too. We have quality all across the board and on our day we are a match for anyone.

EAiSA: Very true. Well, good luck to you both.

KBM: Thanks, EAiSA, we hope we can send our fans home happy.

EAiSA: Hye-Won, Bo-Min has said she isn’t nervous about facing you today, how does that make you feel?

LHW: We’ve not been worrying about her in the build-up. The gaffer has told us to concentrate on our own game and play to out strengths. I think it will a tough match but we are confident of a result.

EAiSA: It should be a great match today, good luck.

LHW: Thanks, EAiSA.

It has finally arrived after all the build-up and talk, the Grand Final. So, without further ado, which player has the best nickname?

 
Ahn Jung-Hwan and Lee Hye-Won versus Kim Nam-Il and Kim Bo-Min

Ahn-Jung Hwan quietly confident here with a whole string of nicknames; The Lord of the Ring, the David Beckham of Asia, the Best Hair in the East. Out of nowhere, though, Kim Nam-Il pips him with the nickname the Vacuum Cleaner on account of he always clears up.

Kim Bo-Min wins the Grand Final!

Amazing scenes here as the TV anchorwoman beats the former Miss World! What a competition and what a result. Before we go let’s just see what our competitors had to say about today’s action.

1st Place   Kim Bo-Min: Delighted to have come first, it’s like a dream come true.
2nd Place   Lee Hye-Won: It’s disappointing to come second but Bo-Min deserved it.
3rd Place   Lee Soo-Jin: It’s a tough competition to win but hopefully I’ll be back in 4 years.
4th Place   Lee Yeun-Doo: I had a great time and I’ll learn for the next time.
5th Place   Im Mi-Jung: It’s been a tough day but so enjoyable and everyone has been great.
