PSG will play the third match of the Coupang Play Series (friendly) against K League One powerhouse Jeonbuk Hyundai at the Busan Asiad Stadium at 5 p.m. on March 3.
The PSG squad arrived in Busan a day ahead of the match and warmed up with an open training session at the Busan Asiad Stadium.
Lee, who had recently missed the three matches of the Asia Tour in Japan due to a sore hamstring, showed that he was in good shape as he warmed up with his teammates. However, he did not participate in the shooting drills and watched the players practice.
“I’m honored and happy to come to Korea with my good teammates,” Lee told reporters at the Mix Zone after the training session, “and I’ll give a good performance if I get to play tomorrow.”

Regarding his current condition, he said, “My body has recovered a lot, but I’m not in a condition to play 90 minutes. It’s not my decision to play, but if I do, I’ll do my best,” he said.
PSG coach Luis Enrique, who held a press conference on the same day, said, “Lee Kang-in is in good shape to play.” “I don’t know how long he will play, but he will definitely play tomorrow,” he said.
“They’re a very good team historically, and they’re not an easy opponent,” said Lee, who will be facing K League One powerhouse Jeonbuk, “so we’ll prepare well and try to win.”
