Korea Republic head coach Shin Taeyong's selection of Ju Sejong was considered one of the surprise decisions, considering Ju's lack of international experience with the senior team. Ju has been a consistent performer in the K-League with first Busan and then FC Seoul, however. 

Currently undertaking his national service in the military for two years, while playing for second division club Asan Mugunghwa, Ju's strongest position is in central or defensive midfield, where he will most likely be a back-up option for Ki Sungyueng, Koo Jacheol or Jung Wooyoung. He made his senior team debut in 2015 and scored his first goal for Korea Republic in a 6-1 friendly defeat by Spain in June 2016.
