Hwang Hee-chan disappeared in South Korea, called

Hwang Hee-channg Wolverhampton Wandererswill miss two of the four friendly matches before the World Cup South Korea in June to allow the winger to complete his basic military training.

Hwang was exempted from being required to complete the country’s mandatory military service after winning a gold medal with the South Korea under-23 soccer team at the Asian Games in Jakarta in 2018.

But the 26-year-old still has four weeks of basic training to finish and will report on the job after Paulo Bento’s side face Chile on June 6th.

The Koreans, who qualify for the November World Cup final in Qatar, are set to play Brazil on June 2 before facing the Chileans. They will then play Paraguay on June 10 and four days later Egypt.

Hwang will be replaced by Ulsan Hyundai striker Um Won-sang.

All South Koreans between the ages of 18 and 35 must serve in the military between 18 and 22 months, although exemptions are provided for athletes who have achieved success in international competition.
