Last season, Busan finished second in K League 2 before going on to earn promotion via qualification. Busan faced local rivals Gyeongnam FC in a two-legged final for promotion to K League 1. After a goalless first leg at Gudeok Stadium, Busan won the away fixture 2-0 to secure their return to the top division for the first time since 2015. Their start has been so far underwhelming as they were easily brushed aside by Pohang.
Jeonbuk entered the season as the defending champions. They won the league last season on goal difference after finishing on 79 points with second-placed Ulsan Hyundai. Ricardo Lopes was one of their star players with 11 goals and 7 assists last season. Dong-Gook Lee scored for the defending champs last week during their 1-0 win over Suwon.
