The K League Classic moves into the 28th round of the season, and with not much time left in the main season (i.e. before the split) so every game is important. Also September is another busy month with at least 5 games each as well as the distraction of the Asian Games (currently going on in Incheon).
Also FC Seoul played Gyeongnam during the week due to their midweek trip to Australia next week in the Asian Champions League.
The result was:
FC Seoul 1 – 1 Gyeongnam

Busan I’Park have only 1 win from their previous 18 league games.
Seongnam have just 1 win in 9, and have only scored 5 goals away from home all season.
