Korean national soccer team ace Son Heung-min (28, Tottenham Hotspur) will be reborn as a "'Ghost buster' Marines" It has been confirmed that the Marine Corps is planning to conduct basic military exercises based on military service benefits.

"The reason Son Heung-min returned to Korea on March 28 is to take advantage of the suspension period of the Premier League to receive basic military training," a source from the soccer community said. "He will join the Marine Corps on Aprli 20 and undergo military training for three weeks. The service area is likely to be Jeju Island," he said.

...

The reason Son chose the Marine Corps, which is known for its high training intensity, is to provide an opportunity for "a serious war" inside and outside. The player himself is said to be determined to wake up again by undergoing surgery and rehabilitation due to arm injuries through intense physical and mental training. On the other hand, it is also understood that it wants to give a healthy impetus to the social atmosphere that has subsided due to the new coronavirus infection (Covid19).

It is also advantageous on a schedule. Unlike the usual four-week basic military training at an Army training center, the Marine Corps can wrap up with a three-week training. Instead of 4 weeks, now he only has to do 3 weeks because it is the Marine Corps (famously known for its intense training).

...

Jeju Island had nine Corona19 cumulative confirmed cases as of Tuesday, the smallest virus-free zone among 18 metropolitan and provincial governments in the country. The 9th Brigade of the Marine Corps, founded in 2015, is stationed in charge of the ground defense and coast guard on Jeju Island.

Given we're in lockdown, i thought you'd enjoy this video

Sonny scores important goals against big teams in important matches, with amazing control, fitness and finesse.

One of the top 5 in the league.

For those of you that are military, do you think the training would be more or less intense in the military compared to premier League football
