Han Song-yi, who goes along with KGC Ginseng Corporation “I’ve never thought of another team”
“I never thought of another team from the beginning.”
KGC Ginseng Corporation succeeded in renewing the contract with veteran Han Song-i in the free agent market this time under the condition of a total of 210 million won (200 million annual salary, 1,000 options).
From the 2017-2018 season, Han Songi, who has been with KGC Ginseng Corporation, will continue to wear the KGC Ginseng Corporation uniform.
Han Song-i, who had a phone interview with <The Spike> on the 26th, said, “After the 2022-2023 season, I took a vacation for about 5 weeks, so I rested well. He met people he hadn’t met before, did volunteer work, and went on a trip.”
Then he continued talking about the FA contract. Han Song-i says that he has no thoughts of other teams ever since he got FA qualification. He said, “I never thought of another team from the beginning. He has a lot of affection for the team and is at an age where he has to prepare for the finish, but he had a strong desire to finish well in this team,” he said, showing extraordinary affection for KGC Ginseng Corporation.
The last 2022-2023 season was an easy season for all the players, coaching staff, and fans of KGC Ginseng Corporation. Although they finished in 4th place with 19 wins and 17 losses and 56 points, they could not narrow the 3rd place Korea Expressway Corporation (60 points) by only one point, and the semi-playoff was not concluded.
Han Song-i also felt sorry for her even though time had passed. “Each season left me with regrets, but this time it was especially regrettable. It wasn’t that I couldn’t go up by a big score, but I could have gone up if I had one more point, but I regret the game where I couldn’t manage the points in the early and mid-season.”
It is the 2022-2023 season, which was an unfortunate season not only for the team but also for Han Song personally. “Any player, young or old, wants to play a lot of time on the court and show what he has. In that respect, it is regrettable that I have not been able to play many games this season.”
In the 2022-2023 season, Han Song-i played an active role not only as a middle blocker, which is the main position, but also as an outside heater. Han Song-i, who played two positions at the same time, said, “It’s not difficult because I’ve always done the middle blocker, but I had to practice the outside hitter again because I did it a long time ago. Some people may think that just doing it is fine, but the steps, swing, and timing are all different. It was a burden, not a burden to renew,” he said, expressing honest feelings.
He continued, “Since there are a lot of outside hitters on the team, I wonder if I don’t have to go in as an outside hitter if they grow well (laughs). And Megawatty Puttywi, who was selected for this Asian quarter, is also an apogee, but he is a player who can also be an outside hitter.” He expressed his desire to play as a middle blocker in the 2023-2024 season.크크크벳
Now, Han Songi is preparing for the 2023-2024 season again, leaving behind the regrets. “My personal goal is to have the body and skills to compete in all games without injury. As a team, I always talked about spring volleyball as a goal, but I think I caught it in the middle and didn’t slip around it. This time, we are aiming to win. Korea Expressway Corporation, the winning team in the 2022-2023 season, was also not considered a candidate for the championship at first. I think it would be nice if we could create a wonderful miracle like the Korea Expressway Corporation,” he concluded the interview.
