After confirming the land owner, he is Ki Sung-yong of Seoul FC.

It is supposed to have been bought in November 2016.

It is known that between 2015 and 2016, former Gwangju FC head coach Ki Young-ok, the father of Ki Sung-yong and Ki’s father, continued to buy over 10 fields in this area.

At the time, they also submitted the’Agricultural Management Plan’ to the local community center to determine what crops to grow and from when.

However, it is difficult to find any traces of actual farming.

Moreover, at this time, Sung-Yong Ki was active in England.

“Mostly we don’t cultivate. For that purpose, we use it as a stand or something like that…”

In addition, the local government judged that 9,610 square meters of land was cut or filled in this farmland and illegally’changed the character’.

It has been confirmed that an administrative disposition has been imposed on the rich man of Mr. Ki to restore the land to its original state.

“The deadline for restoration is on May 30th and the end of May, so we have notified the agent.

The controversy is that a park will be built in a nearby area.

For this reason, the police are investigating Mr. Ki’s rich man for violating the Farmland Law, etc., and is also investigating whether the land was purchased for the purpose of speculation.

Regarding this, it is reported that the former head of the team, Ki Young-ok, explained that he bought the land under his son’s name to build the’Ki Sung-yong Soccer Center’ in the future.
