FC Seoul forward Na Sang-ho on Tuesday was named the top player in South Korean soccer for July, his second monthly award this season.

The Korea Professional Football League said Na beat out three candidates for the Player of the Month honor for July. He scored three goals and recorded one assist in five matches last month.

Na was also voted the top player for April. He is now the fourth K League player to capture multiple Player of the Month awards in the same season, and the first South Korean to do so.

The winner was chosen based on votes by the K League's technical study group (60 percent), fans (25 percent) and players of the FIFA Online 4 video game from Electronic Arts (15 percent), the league's official video game partner.

In the K League, Na finished tied for first with Gerso Fernandes of Incheon United and Oberdan of the Pohang Steelers with 17.42 percent support.

But Na came out on top in the fan voting with 11.13 percent and in the FIFA game players' voting with 13.06 percent.

For the season, Na is tied as the league's top goal scorer with 11 goals in 25 matches. (Yonhap)
