Announcer Kim Sung-joo and former footballers Ahn Jung-hwan and Song Chong-gug will act as commentators for the Korean games at the 2014 Brazil World Cup, according to local reports yesterday.

TV channel MBC said that they will implement an unprecedented three-person system - one broadcaster and two commentators - to deliver commentary on Korea’s games taking place at Brazil.

The three will have a trial broadcast at a warm-up match with Tunisia on Wednesday followed by several major games, including the nation’s first World Cup match against Russia on June 18.

“Experienced broadcaster Kim Sung-joo will take the central role, while former striker Ahn Jung-hwan and former defense player Song Chong-gug will make versatile comments about the game,” said one associate from a sports broadcasting station.
