Hwang Eui-jo, alleged illegal filming, was actually Norwich’s highest paid employee…3 million won per month
A media outlet has revealed the salary of “controversial goalie” Hwang Eui-jo (31-Norwich City), who is suspected of illegal filming.
Football media ‘Football League World’ introduced the top five salaries of Norwich players on the 17th, citing data from club financial statistics company ‘Capology’.
Topping the list is Hwang Eui-jo. According to Capology, Hwang earns a weekly wage of 45,000 pounds (about $74.6 million) and an annual salary of 3.88 billion won at Norwich.
That’s more than $300 million in monthly salary.
He beat out the likes of Ben Gibson (£40,000 a week), Jack Stacey (£35,000 a week), Shane Duffy (£35,000 a week), and Ashley Barnes (£30,000 a week).
Hwang, who joined Norwich on loan from Championship side Nottingham Forest last summer, has made a strong impact since October after settling in.
He scored his Norwich debut against Sunderland on October 28 and has since netted three goals in five English Championship (Second Division) games, including a brace against Sunderland.
He was at his best recently with back-to-back goals in two games against Queens Park Rangers and Watford.
The midfielder’s mid-range shooting form has been praised as returning to his prime.
However, after scoring against Watford, he pulled up with a hamstring problem and hasn’t returned to the field in two weeks.
Local reports suggest that he is unlikely to return before the end of the year.
Hwang has become the hope of Norwich fans, but he has been at the center of controversy in Korea for allegedly filming illegally.
Hwang is currently being investigated by police as a suspect for filming someone who had sex with him, which is illegal under the Sexual Offenses Act.
In June, a woman who identified herself as Hwang Ui-jo’s former lover posted photos and videos of Hwang Ui-jo and women on Instagram, stating that “Hwang Ui-jo is having a relationship with many women and causing them harm.”
Hwang Ui-jo denied the allegations of illegal filming.
The controversy escalated when he sued the publisher of the private life revelations for defamation under the Information and Communications Network Act and threats and coercion under the Sexual Violence Punishment Act. 온라인카지노
The battle for truth continued between Hwang’s side and the victim’s side.
The victim’s lawyer, Lee Eun-soo, held a press conference on March 23 and revealed the contents of the call and messenger between Hwang Ui-jo and the victim.
In the conversation, the victim said, “I told you I didn’t like it. Why is (the video) still there?
You should admit that you did something illegal,” to which Hwang Ui-jo replied, “I didn’t think this would happen.
I’m really sorry.”
After turning Hwang Ui-jo into a suspect, the Seoul Metropolitan Police Department stepped up its investigation by detaining Hwang Ui-jo’s brother, who had been acting as his manager, on suspicion of distributing the video (a violation of the Sexual Violence Against Women Act) and conducting forensics on Hwang Ui-jo’s laptop and four cell phones.
Recently, the police investigation revealed that Hwang’s brother threatened the woman.
The Korean Football Association held an emergency meeting on March 28 and decided to temporarily suspend Hwang from the national team pending the outcome of the investigation.
As a result, his participation in the Qatar Asian Cup in January next year is uncertain.
Meanwhile, Norwich, who are unbeaten in four league games since December when Hwang was sidelined, will host Huddersfield in the 23rd round of the league on Nov. 24.
Norwich currently sits in 10th place, just outside the playoffs.
