Kim Young-kwon said, “I will prepare for the immediate goal rather than preparing for the next World Cup.” “I think the next year is more important,” he said. “Looking at the future four years from now is a distant story, and I will prepare well and challenge myself to win the Asian Football Championship (Asian Cup) next year.” He also said, “I will definitely win the Asian Cup scheduled for next year,” and “I will work hard for Ulsan Hyundai’s second K-League victory.”

Kim Young-kwon was first selected for the senior national team in 2010 by former national team coach Cho Kwang-rae. Since then, he has stepped on the stage of the World Cup finals three times. He joined the Century Club (100 A matches) in the Round of 16 match against Brazil and has scored 7 goals in his A match career.
