The Player of the Month award selects candidates through a vote (60%) of the Federation TSG Technical Committee among the players selected as MOM (Match Distinguished Player), Best Eleven, and MVP of K-League 1 matches held during the month. Then, a fan vote (25%) and a ‘FIFA Online 4’ user vote (15%) will be held through the K-League official website. The player with the highest scaled score by adding the three items is determined as the winner. The May Player of the Month award was evaluated for five matches from round 11 to round 15 of the K-League 1.
