Broadcasting All Asian Cup Games
Coupang Play, which digitally broadcasts the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup Qatar 2023, unveiled the entire lineup of broadcasting staff.
The “Broadcast Dream Team,” consisting of commentators Han Joon-hee, Lee Keun-ho, and Hwang Deok-yeon and six castors, Jung Yong-gum, Yoon Jang-hyun and So Jun-il, will add depth and fun to the Clinsman’s journey to win the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years.
All the games of the Korean national soccer team, including Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in, and Kim Min-jae, which are expected to be the strongest ever, will be played by Han Joon-hee, a commentator on Coupang Play, and Lee Keun-ho, a commentator on “Son of the Sun.”
Lee Keun-ho, who finished his career in 2023, joined Coupang Play’s broadcasting staff from Thursday’s Iraq warm-up match. After the first broadcast, he received positive responses, such as “It was good to tell the details of the field that only players know,” and “I hope he can comment on K-League or overseas soccer.”
Klinsmann will be assigned to Group E along with Bahrain, Jordan, and Malaysia to play against a total of two Middle Eastern teams in the group stage. Based on the experience of Lee Keun-ho, who played in the Qatar League, and Han Joon-hee, Coupang Play will present a more in-depth broadcast. In the “Preview Show,” which starts an hour before the game, two commentators analyze the lineup and viewing points of both teams, providing a more vivid and professional viewing experience.
Commentator Hwang Deok-yeon, who has recently shown outstanding skills, will support the other promising countries such as Japan, Iran, and Australia. Hwang Deok-yeon is a former kit manager for the U-23 national soccer team and has a solid fandom with his wide experience in soccer and talks like the MZ generation.
The castors will be Jung Yong-gum, Yoon Jang-hyun, and So Jun-il trio. With field experience at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Chung Yong-gum has 13 years of experience in sports broadcasting. Castor Yoon Jang-hyun has experienced both La Liga and Champions League broadcasts and is receiving good reviews for his witty remarks that elicit good words from commentators. Castor So Jun-il, who made his voice known through the broadcasts of the 2016 Rio and 2020 Tokyo Olympics, is also known as a “football fan” and is loved by many fans.
Coupang Play will broadcast all matches of 24 participating countries, from group preliminaries to final matches. Out of a total of 51 matches in the Republic of Korea, 35 matches will be played with their own broadcasting staff to produce Korean broadcasts.
Japan, China, Australia, and Kim Pan-gon’s pre-group match between Malaysia and Indonesia, and Asia’s new ‘Ventuho’ UAE, Iran, and Saudi Arabia will also be broadcast in Korean. 스포츠토토
