Sydney FC's new Korean signing Byun Sung-Hwan has taken part in his first training session after arriving in the country on Tuesday.

Sung-Hwan took part in his first training session with the Sky Blues on Wednesday morning and has high expectations for the season ahead.

"Sydney team is good team. Good quality, good technicians, good coaching system," said Sung-Hwan.

"Style (of play) is simple and attacking. A very good system, (which) suits my style."

The Korean defender recently became the second international player signed to the Sydney FC squad by Head Coach, Vitezslav Lavicka and joins the club after seven seasons and 134 games in the K-League.

"K-League and A-League (are) very similar I think," said the 29-year old.

"Before, I came (to Sydney FC) I think K-League was stronger - more technical, more physical - but now I see that A-League and K-League are very similar standard."

The left sided defender enjoys playing an attacking role and brings valuable experience to Lavicka's team.

"We need the typical fullbacks who play well in defence, but we also need to support the attacking path. He can do it," explained the Sydney mentor.

Sung-Hwan has signed a two year deal with Sydney FC and believes he and his new team are in for a successful season.

"I (am) very happy. Sydney city is beautiful," he explained. "Sydney FC has good team, good coaching staff - this season we can be champions."

The 29-year old will be on hand to watch his new team mates in action tonight when they chase their ninth-straight friendly win against the Sutherland Sharks at Miranda.
