Is Lee So-young a scary tiger captain? “You have to scold them when you’re scolding him. Lee So-young, fighting!
“Now I think there are more situations where I feel like I have to scold them than comforting them.”
KGC Ginseng Corporation’s main outside heater Lee So-young (29) was appointed as the team’s new captain ahead of this season. Lee So-young, who moved from GS Caltex to KGC Ginseng Corporation on the condition of receiving a total of 1.95 billion won for three years after the end of the 2020-21 season, took on a heavy responsibility in his second year of KGC.
Lee So-young, like a captain and an ace of the team, is exerting his fighting spirit in every game, adding strength to KGC Ginseng Corporation’s spring volleyball fight. This season, Lee So-young has played in all 34 games played by her team, recording 439 points, 36.93% attack success rate, 49.64% receive efficiency, and 4.175 digs per set. It is ranked 5th in receive-defense, 6th in attack success rate, 7th in dig, and 10th in scoring, making it most of the indicators of offense and defense.
Ko Hee-jin, head coach of KGC Ginseng Corporation, also said to Lee So-young, “Lee So-young is grateful for playing. Playing with an injury is a tremendous burden. As a captain, I want to play with a sense of responsibility as an ace of the team. I’m grateful for him.”
While every game is played with the mind that it is the final, Lee So-young claims to be a villain on the court. All the players know that it is a tiring and difficult situation, but if you send encouragement that it is okay, it could be released. Rather, he is scolding the players bitterly and raising the fighting spirit and will in the players’ hearts.
Lee So-young, who I recently met, said, “Now there are many situations where I feel like I have to scold them rather than comfort them.” “It’s a tiger on the court,” he laughed and said, “The coach also ordered that senior players on the court should do better to make their juniors comfortable.” B, I think the role of Hyesun and Ran is important. “It’s my role to make sure that all the team members trust each other and go stably,” he said.
Lee So-young has shaken her opponent’s receiving line with a sharp serve since her debut. But not this season. He is showing the worst serve record since his debut. An average of 0.088 per set, far below the career high record of 0.275 and below the personal average of 0.167.
Last season, he had fun playing spike serve again, but this season, he is mainly hitting plotter serve to ease the burden on his shoulders.
He also said, “There are shoulder burdens, and there are also hitting the plotter to hit the opponent’s target. For now, I think it’s better to serve to help the team. Of course, the burden on the shoulders is also the reason for serving as a plotter, he said.
KGC Ginseng Corporation is advancing to spring volleyball for the first time since the 2016-17 season. As of the 10th, KGC Ginseng Corporation (53 points, 18 wins, 16 losses) is in third place. Spring volleyball is possible if we continue the current trend.
He said, “I will rest well and recover well and fight somehow. “I’m meeting Heungkuk Life Insurance on the 11th, and I’m confident that I can win again because I’ve won once,” he said.
