On this day, KGC Ginseng Corporation’s victory was indispensable to Jeong Ho-young’s performance. Middle blocker Jeong Ho-yeong scored the most points on the day, including 3 blocks, with 21 points, second only to Elisabeth Ine Barga (25 points). The 18 points is also the highest individual score since her professional debut.
Coach Goh said, “Jung Ho-young did a good job,” but “I’m not satisfied. Today, there was a side where the opponent’s middle blocker was low. You can’t be satisfied with the present, you have to train to be close to perfection.”
It was a ‘whip’ that encouraged players, but along with it, it also revealed expectations for disciples.
Coach Goh said, “To Jung Ho-young, he looks like a slacker, but he’s quick to understand and smart.”
He said, “I was afraid at first because I was able to go stably with one veteran (Jung Ho-young’s Jung-yong),” he said. It will be embarrassing,” he said.
Coach Lee Na-do, who played the best game since his debut, pushed Jeong Ho-young a little more. He was reprimanded for the somewhat disappointing performance in the third set. The scene where director Koh called and talked to Jeong Ho-young separately during the set was captured.
Director Koh said, “I do well when things go well, but when things don’t go well, I fall below average.”
He encouraged, “But I am grateful for coming back to life in the 4th set and giving me good attacks and blocking.”
On the other hand, Heungkuk Life Insurance’s acting manager Kim Dae-gyeong, who gave up the game, also said that Jeong Ho-young’s performance was great. Acting Kim said, “I tried to shake the receive, but the opponent held up well, and as a result, a lot of plays using Jeong Ho-young came out.” “It was an important game, but I didn’t want to put pressure on the players, but the game was static. I will prepare well,” he said.
