“I will maximize my strengths.”
Hyundai Capital setter Kim Myung-gwan gave a challenge full of spirit ahead of the championship match. The opponent is Korean Air player Han, who is called the best setter of the time.
Hyundai Capital overcame KEPCO in the third round of the men’s playoffs (PO) held on the 28th, and won the championship ticket with a series record of 2 wins and 1 loss.
Now, it competes with Korean Air, who placed first in the regular league, for the championship trophy.
Kim Myung-gwan, who jumped into the V-League in the 2019-2020 season, went from ‘Spring Volleyball’, his first since his debut, to the stage of the championship game.
Kim Myung-gwan’s performance is also an important factor for Hyundai Capital.
Choi Tae-woong, head coach of Hyundai Capital, explained, “I have strengths in serving and blocking,” choosing Kim Myung-gwan instead of Lee Hyun-seung as the starting setter in the PO game 3.
As expected by the coaching tower, Kim Myung-gwan led the team to victory by posting 8 points including 5 blocking and 1 serving.
In fact, there were many times during the season when Kim Myung-gwan was pushed by Lee Hyeon-seung to stay in the warm-up zone. However, when he got a chance in a game where the fate of the team was at stake, he played an active role as if he had waited.메이저놀이터
Kim Myung-gwan, whom I met after the PO, expressed his confidence, saying, “I have prepared well to repay the trust the coach has given me to compete.”
Also, “I tried to prepare well with the thought that an opportunity would come someday. I tried to play something I couldn’t do during training, but I think I was able to do it more boldly in the game.” I pushed forward with the thought of coming out,” he said.
Now we head to a higher place. In front of the road to the top, a veteran player of Korean Air, the No. 1 team in the regular league, is holding on.
It is an undeniable reality that Korean Air actually has the upper hand in the setter fight.
However, Kim Myung-gwan has no intention of stepping down like this. If Kim Myung-gwan’s performance continues in the championship game, Hyundai Capital can continue to make a blast.
Kim Myung-gwan, who pointed out that Han was “the best player in Korea,” said, “I will learn what I can learn from and take away what I can take away. I am taller, so I will maximize my strengths and fight head-to-head.”
