According to the Players’ Association, Secretary General Kim Hoon-ki recently held a seminar with WK League Incheon Hyundai Steel players, saying, “The club and the players should decide their salaries autonomously.

We are not asking for a higher salary.

It is important to create a free negotiation environment.”

He said, “The maximum annual salary was set at 50 million won in 2009.

“Considering the rise in prices, this is a system that must now be abolished,” he said.

“I am expressing my wish that many players would carefully negotiate their salaries autonomously instead of using a cap system.”

Ji So-yeon (Seattle Reign), president of the players’ association, also said in December last year.

At the Korea Women’s Football Federation awards ceremony, they suggested improving the salary system and professionalization, saying, “Right now, how many people will let their children play women’s soccer, where the highest annual salary is 50 million won”
