The availability of Korean captain Son Heung-min for the upcoming friendly match against Peru is in question as he recently underwent sports hernia surgery. A national team official from the Korea Football Association (KFA) confirmed that Son had the surgery in England after completing his Premier League season with Tottenham Hotspur on May 28.

With approximately two weeks since the surgery, Son is currently focusing on his recovery. The official stated that they will have to wait and see if he will be ready to play on Friday. The final decision lies with coach Jurgen Klinsmann, although Son himself is eager to participate.
The match against Peru is scheduled to take place at 8 p.m. on Friday in Busan, followed by another friendly against El Salvador in Daejeon on the following Tuesday.
