He played in the K League for Yukong Elephants from 1985 to 1992. After he retired, he moved into coaching.

Minho doesn’t have many memories with his father. When he was little, his dad was busy with his career. Moreover he became a SM trainee at a young age, and had to move from his house when he was still young.
