Well this is my first review for FIFA 20, so hopefully it helps any of you looking to pick up this Korean monster. My dear god is this man a ridiculously good card to pick up in this game. I genuinely believe that the caliber of quality that this card will deliver will last you for most of the game's lifetime, since the only thing he does is score straight bangers. Initially, I thought that for his hefty price (picked him up for 440k), that he would be an average player who may not do much for me, but man was I wrong. I honestly can not see a single thing wrong with this Son card, he scores goals for fun and feels seamless on the balls. I initially play Son as a CM for chemistry reasons, but switch in game to 4222 and play him as a striker with Lacazette.
Now don't get me wrong, Son is extremely fast in game, but it is important to understand that there are faster players than him in the game; however, it doesn't mean they feel as smooth as Son with the ball. So that's why I have given Son such a high rating on pace, but not necessarily a perfect score. I am sure he will get some special cards in this game, and hopefully they make him feel a bit faster.
North Korea may have missiles ready to launch at any time, but Heung Min Son already has two missiles of his own, his left and right feet. No matter what side you take the shot from, the accuracy of his shots are impeccable. Thanks to the boost from the hawk chemistry style, it makes his shooting way more lethal than it was before. Whether you like taking in the box finishes or finessing outside of the box, this man will do whatever you ask of him.
I play this Korean god next to Lacazette, and I have to say that their partnership is ridiculous. Heung Min Son not only scores goals himself, but easily sets up his partner in crime for goals constantly. His through balls are usually on target likely due to his strong weak foot, but nonetheless he still gets the job done.
Son's feet are literal magnets to the ball. I really enjoyed Son because he would keep the ball so close to him which made him hard to tackle. He felt extremely agile and would turn around very fast with the ball, so using skill moves with him is very effective. It wasn't enough of an issue to hinder Son, but if I had to be really picky about him, I felt that his balance was slightly low. Sometimes if he gets tackled he may stumble pretty hard, but once you get used to how he plays, this basically becomes unnoticeable.
Surprisingly, Son felt much stronger than I thought he would. Last year, I felt that he was rather weak and would get bullied off the ball far too easily but this year he just feels way different. Whenever I would make a through ball to him and he had to fight against a defender, most of the time he would win the bout and outpace them, but occasionally he would get bodied by physically dominant players like Koulibaly. Also, his stamina is one of his best traits for me, since he is still able to play at his absolute best when everyone else would get tired.
For where he stands right now, I believe that Son is one of the best strikers in the game right now. He has the abilities to do absolutely everything a top tier striker should have and even more.His link up play is extremely effective, and he is also able to score goals on his own. Even being over 400k, I believe that this price is justified with the quality that you will be getting from him. This man will be an absolute beast in this game for months to come, and should be the card that everyone saves to try and get. If South Korea ever heads to war with North Korea, I already know that the man leading the front line will be Heung Min Son.
