KEPCO Lim Seong-jin (24), who is attracting attention as the next-generation signboard for men’s volleyball, has an introverted personality.
KEPCO coach Kwon Young-min said, “Sung-jin is so tender-hearted that if he makes one mistake, he makes a series of mistakes. He doesn’t talk much (during the game) because he’s afraid he’ll feel burdened.” I’m trying to change my timid personality.”
Is that effort gradually showing up as a bold play on the court?
The highlight of the match against Woori Card held at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 10th was, without a doubt, the battle of pride between Lim Seong-jin and Kim Ji-han (24, Woori Card), a friend of the same age.
First, Kim Ji-han announced a declaration of war by hitting two consecutive serve aces to Lim Seong-jin in the 4th set, 18-15.
Kim Ji-han pointed at Seong-jin Lim before firing the second serve ace, and Seong-jin Lim responded with a roar and raised both hands. The faces of the two were mixed with a strange tension and a faint smile.
Lim Seong-jin, who was hit by a blow, succeeded in taking revenge right away, rather than shrinking.
In the 4th set, 17-21, he repaid Kim Ji-han with two consecutive powerful serves like cannonballs. Lim Seong-jin raised his fist. 메이저사이트
In the 4th set that day, Lim Seong-jin (5 points) and Kim Ji-han (4 points) scored the most points for both teams, excluding foreign players.
After the match, Lim Seong-jin looked back and said, “(Kim Ji-han’s attack) actually stimulated me more and gave me more strength.”
Until Kim Ji-han was traded from KEPCO to Woori Card in August of last year, the friendship they had built while eating rice together seemed to be intact.
Lim Seong-jin said, “Ji-han is still in the game group chat room, and we say things that stimulate each other or even cheer each other up.”
Im Seong-jin, who gave the team a gift of ‘escape from 9 consecutive losses’ ahead of his birthday (January 11), seems to spend the day in a good mood.
