More than 18,000 people have to date supported a petition posted on the official website of President of the Republic of Korea Moon Jae-in, which asks for revoking the Korean referee’s entitlement to lead international matches.

The petition pointed to serious mistakes of Kim in the match, which it said could be noticed with basic knowledge on football. It is collecting public support on the site until October 1. 

Many Korean football fans said in the Vietnam-UAE match at the Asian Games 2018 on September 1, the referee was unfair to the Vietnamese Olympic team by neglecting two times UAE players broke the rules, which could grant Vietnam a penalty kick.

Losing to the UAE in the match, Vietnam missed the bronze medal. The game went straight to a penalty shootout after the normal time ended with a 1-1 draw, with Vietnam suffering a 3-4 defeat on the penalty shootout.-
