Choi Yong-Soo (born September 10, 1973, in Busan, South Korea) is a professional footballer for Júbilo Iwata of the J. League, the top professional football league in Japan.

He is regarded as a prolific striker in both Korea and Japan, known for his hard-nose aggressiveness and work rate. He divorced his wife in November 2006 after a 15-month-long marriage. His former wife, a one-time contestant in a Miss Korea pageant, is now going through the legal procedures to take half the estate properties under Choi's name per their prenuptial agreement.[1]

He has also played in 1996 Summer Olympics.

Nickname

In Australia and Pakistan Yong-Soo is known as "Younis Choi", given to him in recognition of his low, swerving shots on goal - much like the signature delivery bowled by Pakistani cricketer Waqar Younis.
