South Korea have called up Park Chu-Young, Jeong Sung-Ryong and Lee Jung-Soo to join the Under-23 side in their London Olympics squad.

Arsenal striker Park brought himself back into the national team fold following his apology over his decision to defer South Korea’s mandatory military service.

Olympic coach Hong Myung-Bo sat next to Park during his press conference, indicating that the former As Monaco striker was back in his good graces.

Meanwhile, 31-year-old Lee recently signed a one-year contract with Qatari side Al Sadd after attracting interest from Chinese champions Guangzhou Evergrande.

Earlier this week, Suwon Bluewings goalkeeper Jung was selected to take part in the 2012 K-League All Star Game against a selection of Korean stars who were involved in the 2002 World Cup.

South Korea will face Mexico, Gabon, and Switzerland in the tournament’s Group B. The country’s full Olympic squad is to be announced later on Friday.
