The former Pohang Steelers and Busan IPark gaffer, who lifted the K League title with FC Seoul in 2016, as well as guiding the team to the FA Cup Final and AFC Champions League semi-final in the same year, has resigned after a dismal start to 2018.

Hwang had been under immense pressure from the supporters having allowed club legend Dejan Damjanovic to leave for fierce rivals Suwon Samsung Bluewings, as well as other key players such as Yun Illok and Osmar to depart during the winter and merely compounded a lacklustre showing in 2017, finishing fifth and missing out on AFC Champions League football.

From the first ten games in the 2018 campaign FC Seoul have won just twice, against Pohang Steelers in round six and Daegu FC in round eight, and are currently sitting in ninth place, 17 points behind current K League Champions and league leaders Jeonbuk Hyundai.

Hwang offered his resignation earlier on Monday and is said to have taken full responsibility for the team's poor start to the season.

Assistant Manager Lee Eulyong has been appointed as caretaker boss until the end of the season.
