When I'm back in my country, it's like being David Beckham. But it's like that for David Beckham all over the world. It must be more difficult for him than for me.

The manager wants to show his tactics, and if I do them perfectly, he'll pick me.
Sometimes I miss playing football, but it's a past thing now.
The best coaches have strong charisma to motivate the whole team while managing the relationship with the media, which can be tense.
It's quite difficult to explain, but I really enjoyed playing against Arsenal, and I'm really pleased that we had great results against them during my career.
To become a good coach, it is important to be equipped with tactics and strategy. But first of all, you need to have strong leadership.
Although the Premier League is tough because players have good physiques and can switch swiftly in offense and defense, it can be overcome after adapting to the league for a few months.
When we had a good relationship between North Korea and South Korea, we always connected with sports.
I thought the sports law sector would be boring, but it was unexpectedly interesting.
To mark Pirlo was not easy.
By training with some of the world's finest footballers and manager, I feel I have matured in all areas - mentally, physically, and technically.
Always the Premier League has several clubs fighting for the title.
All the Asian people respect me and watch me. But I don't want people to think of me as an Asian player. I am just a football player.
I wanted to show that Asian players could make it in Europe. But it was far more important for me just to become a better player. That is why I came to Europe from Asia.
It was funny because on the day that I joined the club, the newspaper that broke the news was one that people don't always trust or believe. Then, when I signed, and there were pictures of me and Sir Alex Ferguson, people believed it.
I don't like to be famous.
We always try to keep going and stay concentrated. Early goals help that a lot.
My priority is what the manager wants me to do.
My father went to catch wild frogs. I was skinny and weak, and my father heard their juice would give me size and strength. It tasted very, very bad... but I had to drink it because I wanted to be a footballer, and everyone said I needed to be bigger and stronger.
I just want to be good at soccer and have a normal life; it is a little ironic that you can't have both.
There is still a big gap between South America and Europe and Asia, and if we had more players playing in Europe, the gap would be smaller.
I don't know why I performed well against Arsenal, but probably we prepared well, and it could be their football style as well.
I watched Hiddink and Ferguson at close quarters, and I realized that I am not a coach.
I don't like rehabilitating myself. It is one of the things I dislike.
I want to show the world how good Korean players are by playing well in the top flight.
I don't want fame or to make money by appearing on TV, but I would not mind appearing on TV if it is related to what I am doing for football.
My first goal is the World Cup, and then my second goal is to win the Asian Cup.
It always feels good to score goals against big teams.
After Sir Alex Ferguson, it's been a difficult time for Man United, but actually, many people know that after Sir Alex Ferguson, it would be difficult for Man United.
Once I became more famous, I was proud that people in Asia started to look towards me.
Manchester United is the world's best club. There is no reason to move to any other team.
All I can do is my best.
We have a long history with Japan. When South Korea play against Japan, the fans tell us that if we lose, they are going to throw the players into the sea.
Early goals make us more confident and energetic for the rest of the game.
It doesn't matter how I'm asked to play, or if the football is good or bad: I like football when I'm on the pitch, not when I'm on the sidelines.
Marcus Rashford has done really well. He had a great first season, and then people had really high expectations, but he showed his quality on the pitch in the second season.
Of my own career, I have many happy memories, but perhaps it - the 2010/11 season, where United broke the record for number of title wins - was the best. I was very satisfied with my performance that year.
We need more of our players to follow the trend and move to Europe, which is the biggest stage in world football, but we're not doing that, and that makes it difficult for us to compete with other countries.
Maybe one of my strengths was to bring the energy to the team, and then defensively, I contributed a lot compared to other players, which is quite essential for the big matches; you know, against big clubs, you need to be very cautious with opponents that attack.
Europe is leading the world in the sport of football. I want to utilize my experience from Europe to support the development of football in Asian countries.
They are always open to come to South Korea and play, because we never reject North Korean athletes.
As Europe is more advanced in football administration, I would like to learn more there.
Against Japan and any Asian teams, we've had good results, so I would say that history proves we are the best Asian team.
Throughout Manchester United's history, we always come up with answers to problems. Big stars come and go, but still, the team keep producing the same performances.
There are no easy games in the Premier League.
I am not worried about playing in front of a big crowd.
I do not think of myself as a standard bearer for Asian players. I just try to work hard for myself.
If it is possible I want to finish my career at Manchester United.
My reputation has increased, not just in Korea but across the continent.
Asian fans chase me and shout; it is different in England.
