Jeju United will miss number 31 for one season for Yoo Yeon-soo’s recovery.
Jeju has decided on the team number for the opening of the 2023 K-League 1. The uniform numbers of existing players such as captain Choi Young-Jun (No. 6), Kim Dong-Jun (No. 1), Lee Chang-Min (No. 8), Jeong Woon (No. 13), Ahn Hyun-Beom (No. 17), Kim Ju-Gong (No. 19), and Kim Bong-Soo (No. 30) There is no big change.
In particular, the owner of number 31 does not change. Jeju decided to skip number 31 for one season in the 2023 season to pray for the recovery of goalkeeper Yoo Yeon-soo, who is struggling to rehabilitate after suffering an unexpected car accident last year. Number 31 is the same uniform number as his trademark that Yoo Yeon-soo has been using since his professional debut in 2020.
Some players dream of reversing the atmosphere through change. Koo Ja-cheol, who wore number 42 during his rookie season with his return to the K-League last year, will wear the number 7 uniform he wore when he played his best role in Jeju in order to make a perfect comeback this season.
The uniform numbers of players who were ambitiously recruited were also confirmed.

Ling, who wore number 10 last year, 메이저놀이터 gave up his uniform number to Hayes and chose number 15 to achieve his goal of 15 attack points.
Captain Choi Young-joon said, “Everyone is satisfied and given a uniform number that strengthens their will, so the atmosphere is quite good. In particular, as a captain, I am very proud that all the members of the team have the mindset of playing together and suggesting a withdrawal with the mindset of training. I will play with Yeonsu on the ground,” he said.
Manager Nam said, “From the uniform number decision, we can see the trust and trust between the players. He left the uniform number 31 for the 2023 season for Yoo Yeon-soo, who is undergoing rehabilitation. This year, all members of Jeju run together with Yoo Yeon-soo. I wish Yoo Yeon-soo a good recovery.”
