The San Diego club announced on the 4th (Korean time) that it signed a 2+1 year contract with Go Woo-seok. The club left a message in Korean saying, “Welcome to San Diego, Go Woo-seok.”

According to local media, Go Woo-seok signed a 2+1 year contract with San Diego with $4.5 million (about 5.9 billion won) guaranteed.

Go Woo-seok receives an annual salary of $1.75 million (about 2.3 billion won) for the 2024 season and $2.25 million (about 2.9 billion won) for the 2025 season. If the one-year extension option clause is exercised, he will receive an annual salary of $3 million (about 3.9 billion won) for the 2026 season, and even if the contract is not extended, he will receive $500,000 (about 700 million won).
