“Dress like me.”
When we think of media days, it’s easy to associate them with a bit of a “stiff” vibe.
That’s because it’s the start of a new season. Of course, not everyone is like that, and there are some people who show their “chops” in the midst of it all.
Such was the case at the opening media day of the 2023-2024 Korean Basketball League at Olympic Parktel on the 16th.
On the court, he gently brought out the words he had kept to himself, causing laughter.
“Next year, everyone will be like me!”
The media day is a chance to see a different side of the athletes than on the court.
As it is an official event, the federation recommends semi-formal attire.
That’s why most of the coaches and players were dressed in neat suits.
One man who stood out for his fashion sense was KCC’s popular star Heo Woong.
He wore a brightly colored knit and khaki pants.
Moon Sung-gon (KT) asked him a question.
“Why are you the only one wearing a knit?”
Heo Woong was embarrassed and said, “Don’t tell me…” But then he said, “I wanted to brighten up the dull media day.
I’m embarrassed that I’m the only one dressed like this. I hope that next year, everyone will wear bright colors like me.”
A teacher is a teacher. He’s seasoned. Sono director Kim Seung-ki didn’t hesitate to answer any questions. Even the sharp questions from his former student.
Lee Jung-hyun (Samsung) and Kim Seung-ki had previously worked together at KGC Ginseng Corporation (now Chung Kwan-jang).
Together, they won the first unified championship in the club’s history in the 2016-2017 season. Lee pointed to his Sono teammate Lee Jung-hyun and said, “He’s too good.
What is the difference between the two Lee Jung-hyuns in your eyes? I wonder who you would like to use if they were the same age.”
Coach Kim Seung-ki said, “They are both good at basketball.
I don’t have much to say,” but he added, “I think our (SONO) Lee Jung-hyun listens well and our (Samsung) Lee Jung-hyun doesn’t listen well.” 온라인카지노
Senior’s advice: “Your appearance is perfect!”
There are also those who skillfully move between advice and teaching. Lee Dae-heon (Korea Gas Corporation).
The representatives of the 10 clubs shared their expectations for each team.
Lee pointed to Yeom Yoo-seong.
After joining KOGAS through the rookie draft last year, Yeom made his first-team debut last season.

In her second season, she stepped up her game even more.

Now she just needs to perfect her basketball.”
