This time, the misjudgment occurred in K League 2, not K League 1.
The game in which the misjudgment took place was the match between Bucheon FC 1995 (hereinafter referred to as Bucheon) and Chungnam Asan FC (hereinafter referred to as Chungnam Asan) in the 11th round of the Hana One Q K League 2 2023, which took place at the Bucheon Sports Complex on the 2nd. The match was won by Bucheon 2-1. Hamos scored in the 45th minute of the first half and Carril in the 32nd minute of the second half.
The problem was the penalty kick declared to Bucheon in the 41st minute of the first half. At the time, Song Seung-min of Chungnam Asan and Kaz of Bucheon were competing for the ball. The referee immediately awarded a penalty kick as contact occurred between the two players. Afterwards, players from Chungnam-Asan protested, and even a video review was conducted, but the decision was not overturned. Chungnam-Asan conceded a goal to Hamos in this scene, which directly affected the defeat.
KFA acknowledged the mistake, saying that it concluded that the judgment of the scene was an error at the referee evaluation subcommittee held later. It was a situation where any player could challenge the ball, and a little contact was a natural picture. 스포츠토토
A KFA official explained the reason for the misjudgment, saying, “It was a moment worth trying to defend enough from the defensive point of view, and from the point of view of attacking, it was not clear that they had the ball yet.” Currently, the referee who oversaw the Bucheon-Chungnam Asanjeon has been ordered to suspend game assignment.
This season, while the K-League is continuing its box office success, it is suffering from repeated judging problems. Recently, a misjudgment in the K-League 1 Gangwon FC-FC Seoul match has become a big issue, and in the case of Chungnam Asan, it has already suffered damage for the second time this season following March.
As much as one decisive decision can change the fortunes of many people and the success of the league, active efforts and practical improvement are required to prevent recurrence.
