The 4th option is obviously the most logical. Once you try it out on main draws of main events and say something controversial in the press, you are bound to attract attention.

He's way too "Eastern". Even Djokovic way too far East for the "proper tennis folk".
Can you imagine a Korean Wimbledon champion? They would call it quits. :lol:

But on a serious note, great results on the Challenger tour, I just want to see him on the main ATP tour asap.
To see what he's made of.

I think Chung will start getting more attention once he regularly plays on the ATP tour. He has a grand total of 10 career matches at the ATP level so far, in direct contrast to Coric's 37.

He's 6 months older than Coric, got into top 100 by playing almost exclusively challengers, biggest win is over Granollers and best result is R2 of an ATP 1000.

There is a growing hype around the young man in Asia, however they have not discovered this forum and tennis is still a growing sport there, South Koreans love their football and baseball but when they see a South Korean on the hallowed grass or the Roland Garos dirt they will suddenly flock and the endorsements will follow.

+1. Playing regularly in the ATP main draw events and beating a notable player or two will definitely build the hype. A Zverev type run would also help.

Go soeda has played in everysingle grandslam sinse 6 years ago. He has experience , losing to him is not embrassing
And losing on clay to a player who reached Roland Garros R4 last year is embarrasing. Okay.
