Three games down and the big story in the K League Classic is that champions FC Seoul are having problems. One point out of a possible nine was not the start that was expected. An opening day draw at home against Pohang Steelers was not a terrible start but then a first home defeat in nine years against Incheon United followed and then came a depressing 1-0 loss at Busan I'Park.

Sol e chuva são dois estados quase sempre opostos e, apesar de raros, também podem ser nomes de futebolistas e, curiosamente, já podem ter coexistido no mesmo plantel. Foi o que passou na época passada nos sul-coreanos do Pohang Steelers com Kim Da-Sol e Adriano Chuva. Quis o destino que na presente temporada se separassem e se o jovem guarda-redes sul-coreano continua no clube, o avançado brasileiro continua no país mas mudou de emblema, representando agora o Gwangju Football Club.
