K League 2 runner-up Busan won 2-1 against K League 1 11th-ranked Suwon FC in the first leg of the relegation PO at Busan Asiad Stadium on June 6. It was thanks to a clever play that drew a foul from the opponent. Suwon took the lead in the 42nd minute through Jang Jae-woong, who was assisted by Lee Young-jae, with a left-footed mid-range shot in front of the penalty box. Busan did not stand still. Busan equalized in the 35th minute when Suwon FC’s Lee Seung-woo was fouled inside the penalty box and Busan kicker Ramas (pictured) calmly converted the resulting penalty kick. Lee Seung-woo, who had already been cautioned for the foul, was sent off. Busan then took the reins of the attack and finally won a penalty kick in the 51st minute through Kim Jung-hwan.
At the same time, the match between K League 2 third-ranked Gimpo FC and K League 1 10th-ranked Gangwon FC at Gimpo Solter Soccer Stadium ended in a goalless draw. The top-ranked Gangwon utilized Lee Jeong-hyeop, Kim Dae-won, and Yoon Il-rok to score, but Gimpo goalkeeper Park Cheong-hyo made it difficult for them. Gimpo tried to score on the counterattack with foreign players such as Lewis and Joo Ning-yo, but failed to find the back of the net.
