Hwang Hee-chan signs 5-year long-term contract with Wolverhampton

Hee-chan Hwang returned from a career-high season in the Premier League. Hwang Hee-chan had time to communicate with many soccer fans through his first event, the ‘Hwang Hee-chan Football Festival’.
Last winter, he signed a new five-year long-term contract with his current team, Wolverhampton, but he also strengthened his determination to keep moving forward.

In an interview ahead of the ‘Hwang Hee-chan Football Festival’ held at the Bucheon City Hall lawn square on the 22nd, Hwang Hee-chan said that he would like to continue to have time to communicate with fans.
Hwang Hee-chan performed his best since transferring to Wolverhampton, recording a career-high 12 goals and 3 assists in the Premier League in the 2023-2024 season.

It was his first double-figure score since breaking into the Premier League, despite missing a month and a half due to a hamstring injury at the end of February.

Hwang Hee-chan held an event to communicate with fans for the first time, and on this day, over 2,000 fans gathered and had time to communicate with Hwang Hee-chan.

Meeting with fans at the Hwang Hee-chan Football Festival

In January 2024, he was called up to the Korea national soccer team and participated in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup.
Hwang Hee-chan missed the first two games due to a hamstring injury, but showed his strength by appearing in the third game against Malaysia.

In particular, in the quarterfinals against Australia, when the team was down 0-1, he scored a penalty kick equalizer in the second half of extra time, sending the game into overtime and laying the foundation for advancing to the semifinals.
Hwang Hee-chan actively met with fans during this year’s pre-season by holding a festival where he could communicate with fans for the first time.

On this day, the event venue set up on the grass plaza of Bucheon City Hall was crowded with more than 2,000 fans, according to the organizers.
Despite the pouring rain from the morning, fans’ love for Hwang Hee-chan was very great.

Hwang Hee-chan said, “I am so grateful that so many people came to visit us despite the hot and rainy weather.
“I’m also very happy to be able to hold a big festival in Bucheon, the city I grew up in and love,” he said. “I hope I have the opportunity to continue communicating with my fans.”

How do you feel about hosting the Hwang Hee-chan Football Festival event?

First of all, I would like to thank you so much for coming so many times despite the hot and rainy weather.
And I am very happy to be able to hold a big festival like this in Bucheon, where I grew up and love.
We will do our best to share good times with as many citizens and fans as possible, so I hope you enjoy it together and make many good memories.

What do you want to show at today’s event?

I came with my national team friends (Baek Seung-ho and Lee Jin-hyeon), so I think you can look forward to it and I will do my best to show you fun soccer.

Looking at Hwang Hee-chan, what would you say to young prospects who dream of becoming soccer players?

When I was young, I dreamed of watching the national team players and K-League brothers, and today, seeing young people, I feel like I have come a long way. If young people see me and can dream like that, I would be very happy and glad.
I also went to Kkachiul Elementary School in Bucheon, and while playing soccer hard at Kkachiul Elementary School, I became a national team player and a Premier League player. I want to give young people hope that they can do the same.
If I learn hard and do well today, I think I will be able to become a national team player, a K-League player, and a great player in the future.

Preparing for the new season

First of all, I rested well for the first week after the national team game.
So, starting this week, I’m starting to prepare again for the next season and I’m working out, but I took the weekend off to prepare for the festival and it’s really fun to meet my fans while resting.

Now I’m training on the areas I was lacking in last season, and next season will of course be the best stage, so it won’t be easy, but I want to become a better Hwang Hee-chan than last season.
I am working hard because I have a strong desire to always show a good performance to the fans who support me until the early hours of the morning, so it would be nice if you continue to support me in the future.

Do you want to play Wolverhampton in Korea?

Many big companies invite other European teams, so other big clubs come to Korea and play preseason and games.
I think it would be great if various media outlets and companies invite our team and provide a lot of support, and it would be great to play in Korea in front of many fans. I hope we have a good opportunity.

Do you have any attack point goals for next season?

To be honest, I have no desire to score a few goals.
I want to show the best version of myself that I can, and of course I want to do better than I did last season.

Of course, it may be a burden, but rather than a burden, it’s something I’ve done naturally, and I’ve always done those things to get to this point.
That’s why I really want to overcome myself and show a better side of myself.
