Coach Myung-bo Hong, who took the Ulsan baton in professional football, showed great firepower in his K-League debut.
Gangwon was struck by 5 to 0, making the first show brilliantly.
This is Kim Young-seong.
The first confrontation between Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo and Kangwon CEO Lee Young-pyo, who played the leading role in the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup quarterfinals Shinhwa, received a lot of attention from fans even in the rain.
In the early half of the game, goalkeeper Jo Hyun-woo saved Ulsan, and in the 27th minute, Kim Ji-hyun got a free kick from a good position and changed the mood.
A free kick wrapped up by Yun Bitgaram hit the right corner of the goal as shown in the picture, giving coach Hong Myung-bo the first goal in the K-League.
Ulsan dominated the game overwhelmingly in the second half.
In the 6th minute of the second half, when Kangwon captain Lim Chae-min, who blocked Lee Dong-jun's solo breakthrough, was sent off, Ulsan's goal feast took place.
Following Kim Ki-hee's extra goal, Lee Dong-jun, who received an infiltrating pass from Dong-gyeong Lee in 3 minutes, struck the wedge with a witty chip shot.
And Kim In-seong alternately shook the Gangwon goal net with his right foot and left foot, leading manager Hong Myung-bo's debut game to a 5-0 win.
Ulsan, which had been pushed by Jeonbuk Hyundai for the past two years in a row, swallowed up the regret of runner-up in the K-League, started off with great firepower from the first game of the season.
[Director Hong Myung-bo/Ulsan: I didn't know we would have such a big result.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our players for participating in today's game.]
The match between Seongnam and Jeju, the promotion team, drew without scoring amid heavy rain.
