Seung Woo Lee


Seung Woo Lee (Suwon, January 6, 1998) is one of the most promising young players to emerge worldwide. Up front he can just as easily play in the centre as well as on the wings and has all the qualities of a player with real promise and high ambition. Lee is a dominating, creative, up-front player who stands out due to his ability as a goal scorer and to provide assists.

FC Barcelona scouts discovered Lee while attending the Danone Cup held in South Africa and Lee passed his final test during a Catalonia-Korea Cup match which Lee played in Sant Cugat with the U12 national team. After debuting with Barcelona’s U12 squad, Lee’s ascent through the ranks has made him one to watch. He was a key part of the Barcelona FC U18 team before signing by Italian professional team Hellas Verona FC in 17/18 season.

Lee is also an iconic international player with the Korean squads. He played in all lower cathegories and last summer he took part in FIFA World Cup in Russia, playing two matches against Mexico and Sweden, and won the Asian Games, becoming a key player both in the semi-finals and the final.
