During his press conference at Ji-Sung Football Center (JSFC) in Suwon, Gyeonggido on May 14 at 11 AM KST, Park Ji Sung announced his retirement, "I will officially end my career as an athlete... I will hold my wedding ceremony on July 27... Following my retirement, I plan to live in Europe."


He also updated the public on his fiancee, who resigned from her position at SBS to focus on her upcoming marriage, joking, "She is currently doing well as an unemployed person... She told me, 'You've been through a lot. Speak well and come back,' before the press conference."


"She feels sorry that a lot of people took interest in us... I think she will always feel apologetic for that, but I will really make her happy so that apologetic heart goes away."


"Although there has been a lot of talk about my position, I've had my mind made up since February. I didn't cry or anything like that. I am most regretful about my knee injury... I have no more regrets about my soccer career. I enjoyed it to the fullest."


Congrats to the couple!

he is planning to live in europe so i don't think becoming a regular cast on rm is gonna happen. perhaps he can be a guest once or twice a year.

That would be awesome!

What is it with Korean athletes retiring at an early age? This guy and Kim Yuna. You're still young enough to play and compete.

sunnynwonderful Wednesday, May 14, 2014

It's not just Korean athletes. It's mostly all athletes. Football and figure skating do not favor older players. Plus, once you've reached success like an Olympic gold medal, where else are you to go?

BCSN24 Wednesday, May 14, 2014

@sunnynwonderful Continue until you can't play or win anymore.

"I have no more regrets about my soccer career. I enjoyed it to the fullest." –– That's the best thing anyone should say when saying goodbye to their career. :)

Hope to see him in running man again though ^^
