LAFC today announced the Club has transferred defender Kim Moon-Hwan to Jeonbuk Hyundai of Korea’s K-League.
“I thank Moon for everything he has done for LAFC in his time here,” LAFC Co-President & General Manager John Thorrington said. “He is a player who made an impact with the Club both on and off the field. The move was precipitated by Moon's desire to return closer to family and the domestic league in Korea in order to prepare for a potential place on South Korea’s World Cup roster. We wish him all the best in the next phase of his career, and he will always be a part of the LAFC family.”
Moon-Hwan, 26, joined LAFC on Jan. 11, 2021 ahead of the club’s fourth MLS season. The Korean international leaves LAFC after appearing in 28 regular season matches, making 20 starts and scoring one goal and two assists in 1,862 minutes played. Moon made 11 straight starts from June 23 – Aug. 4 last season, and was twice named to the MLS Team of the Week in 2021.
