The K League enters June with the league taking shape nicely and the top / bottom teams becoming clearer. At the top you currently have Jeonbuk Hyundai and Ulsan Hyundai, whilst at the bottom Gwangju FC and Incheon United are both struggling. The weekend starts with Incheon hosting Gangwon on Friday evening. On Saturday the East Coast derby between Pohang Steelers and Ulsan Hyundai should be interesting. Then finally on Sunday the game between Suwon Bluewings and Gwangju FC could be a highlight. All of the K League 2 sides enter the FA Cup this weekend, with a number of banana-skin ties. Every team plays sides from the K3 League or below.
