Alex Brosque got on the scoresheet in Japan taking his season tally to seven, while Brett Holman netted and produced an encouraging display in Aston Villa's pre-season opener.
Firstly to Korea's K-League where Eddy Bosnar started and played just over an hour before being replaced for tactical reasons as Suwon lost for their third straight game and fell seven points behind Jeonbuk with a 3-0 defeat.
Bosnar had a chance to open the scoring on 25 minutes when a corner fell invitingly to him, however he could only produce a weak right-foot prod on goal which was easily saved.
Eninho put Jeonbuk ahead shortly after, before Bosnar drove forward and unleashed a trademark long-range drive on 36 minutes, but the effort was high and wide.
The Australian was surprisingly replaced on 61 minutes, with Suwon seeking more pace in defence as they searched for a leveller but were prone to conceding on the counterattacker which happened as Motors powered ahead with two more goals in the final 15 minutes.
Elsewhere in Korea, Luke DeVere put in another impressive full shift as Gyeongnam FC went down 1-0 to Pohang Steelers on Saturday.
DeVere was solid at the back as Pohang had the majority of the chances, but was caught out for a high ball which Ko Mu-Yeol headed in for the 72nd minute winner. The result leaves Gyeongnam four points outside the top eight.
On Sunday in Korea, Robbie Cornthwaite, Matt Simon and Matt McKay were all absent as Busan I'Park won 3-2 away to Chunnam Dragons.
Elsewhere on Sunday, Adrian Madaschi and Nathan Burns were out due to injury as Jeju United won 4-1 over Daejeon Citizen and Incheon United stunned FC Seoul 3-2 respectively.
In Japan's J.League on Saturday, Alex Brosque ended a two-month wait for a goal however it was in vein as Shimizu S-Pulse capitulated to a 5-3 defeat to champions Kashiwa Reysol.
Brosque, who played a full game, fired Shimizu 3-1 ahead on 63 minutes, when he raced forward and coolly slotted into the bottom corner but Reysol hit back with four goals to stun the hosts whose poor run of form continues.
Elsewhere, Jade North was back after suspension, putting in a full 90 minutes, as bottom club Consadole Sapporo lost 4-1 at Jubilo Iwata, while Joshua Kennedy started and was replaced late as in-form Nagoya Grampus had a goalless draw with leaders Vegalta Sendai.
In China's Super League, Daniel Mullen made his starting debut for Dalian Aerbin as they were beaten 3-2 in the derby by Dalian Shide.
Mullen put in a full shift but it was an uneasy opening 20 minutes as James Chamanga fired Shide two goals ahead.
Aerbin responded before Mullen was found out on 53 minutes, with Bulgarian striker Martin Kamburov outmuscling the Australian before turning to score to make it 3-1.
Elsewhere, Rostyn Griffiths played a full game and had a late long-range effort pushed narrowly over the bar as Guangzhou Fuli stunned local rivals Guangzhou Evergrande 1-0 on Sunday.
Dino Djulbic played a full 90 minutes in Guizhou Renhe's 1-1 draw away to Liaoning Whowin, along with Milan Susak in Tianjin Teda's 0-0 draw with Qingdao Jonoon.
Joel Griffiths was absent as Shanghai Shenhua won 3-1 over Beijing Guoan on the day the club introduced Didier Drogba to the fans, although his debut is still to come.
In Denmark's Superliga on Sunday, Brent McGrath didn't make the Brondby squad for their season opener against OB.
Meanwhile, Brett Holman scored the winner and produced a standout performance in Aston Villa's pre-season warm-up 2-1 victory over Burton Albion. The display was very positive for Holman's hopes of winning a regular Villa spot under new boss Paul Lambert who labelled his goal "brilliant".
Mitchell Langerak made a poor mistake as Borussia Dortmund lost 3-1 to Club Brugge in their pre-season friendly, with the goalkeeper racing off his line unnecessarily and being found out for the final goal.
