The latest strike, his fourth in five matches for Suwon Bluewings, puts him three clear at the top of the K-League scorers table and at 0.63 goals per match, gifts him a ratio better than seven of the last 10 K-League Golden Boot winners.

But it wasn't enough to stop Suwon slipping to another loss: despite Taggart's scoring blitz, the sixth-placed Korean club are battling a seven wins, eight draws, seven losses record.

Without the on-fire Aussie's consummate form, Suwon would likely be in the bottom three. As it stands, due to Korea's unique promotion and relegation system, they're still only one spot above the relegation round places in the 12-team league.

The Aussie seems to be enjoying life in the north-western city, posting numerous photos about the food, lifestyle and his teammates on his Instagram account, saying that he was lavishing "the new world in Korea."

In an interview for the cover article in Suwon's most-recent edition of the club magazine - in which Taggart was branded 'Ta-god' - which focused on the Aussie's success, the 26-year-old acknowledged the mixed fortunes of the Korean side.

"I think the second half of the 2019 season has just started," he said.

"We were a little sluggish in the first half but we will do our best to make sure that the fans in the second half will be able to get the results they want."

Socceroos boss Graham Arnold will be hoping Taggart isn't peaking early and can continue his hot-streak into Australia's preliminary round of World Cup qualifiers in two months time, with the Socceroos set to take on Kuwait in their opener on September 10.
