Ki-Hyeon was the second player to shun the domestic league when he joined Royal Antwerp after graduating from high school.

An impressive ten goals in 25 matches led to Anderlecht signing him in time for the 2001-02 season.

He replaced Jan Koller up front when he left the club, became the first Korean player to appear in the Champions League and scored a hat-trick in the Belgian Super Cup Final against Westerlo in only twelve minutes.

He scored the vital goal that took Korea into extra time in the Second Round clash with Italy, and subsequently into the quarter finals for the first time.

He played in all seven of Korea's games in the 2002 World Cup finals.

Ki-Hyeon joined Fulham in August 2007 with a three-year contract.
