Club Career

He joined Ulsan Hyundai,the K-League giant in 2003. With his decent help, Ulsan came second in the league that season. In 2005, he was loaned out to J. League side Kashiwa Reysol, but after 5 months' disappointing spell, he returned to Ulsan. Following his return, Ulsan won the league that year, also becoming the top scorer for the Hauzen Cup, which is Korean League Cup. It seemed definite that Choi would become Ulsan's icon, but he moved to Seongnam Ilhwa, which made many Ulsan supporters extremely angry at the board. Choi helped Seongnam becoming runner-up that season, but in 2008, he was disappointing, and announced he would join the army in 2009, which made many Seongnam fans angry. He moved to Gwangju Sangmu Phoenix, the army team at the beginning of the 2009 season. There, partnershiped with Kim Myung-Joong, he has been the core of Gwangju's surprising upset.
