In the end, Kim left for Anyang again in 2018 to secure time to play. Kim, who played 31 games for Anyang and became a main defender of the K League 2, was re-leased to Suwon once again in the 2019 season, and when his contract with Jeonbuk expired after returning from Suwon, he transferred to Bucheon FC as a free agent.
