“Before Corona, there were many ceremonies where our players and fans were in sync. I want to regain that atmosphere.”
Now, he has grown into a superstar of the V-League and a mainstay of the national team. However, in the heart of Heo Soo-bong, there was a gymnasium in Cheonan, Yu Gwan-sun, which was full.
Hyundai Capital won a set score 3-0 in the Dodram 2022-2023 season V-League OK Financial Group match held at Ansan Yu Gwan-soon Gymnasium on the 26th. Heo Soo-bong scored 8 points and solidly supported Orreol (18 points), the main gun.
The highlight of this match was the scene where Heo Soo-bong and Hong Dong-seon went back and forth between the middle blocker and the apogee to confuse the opponent. Heo Soo-bong hit the fastball, and Hong Dong-seon followed OK Financial Group Cha Ji-hwan as if he were in charge. Then, when Heo Soo-bong fell into the rearguard, Hong Dong-seon was unexpectedly replaced with the Libero, and Heo Soo-bong moved back to Apogee and hit the rearguard.
Heo Soo-bong, who we met after the game, said, “The difference between Woori Card and OK Financial Group was only a few points, so this two consecutive matches were really important.” .
This kind of switching that shook OK Financial Group’s defense was not the result of long practice. I just started preparing after the last game. Heo Soo-bong smiled at the question, “Was it a strategy aimed at the OK Financial Group match?”, saying, “You can say that. I also had experience playing as a middle blocker during the 2018-2019 season.” “When Hong Dong-seon comes in, it also means that our serve becomes stronger.
Hong Dong-seon said, “I used a similar strategy in the second round of Korean Air. At that time, I was not good enough and lost 0-3.” he emphasized. He was embarrassed, saying, “I’m a bit picky, so the director told me to ‘focus seriously’.” 안전놀이터
“I felt that it was not easy to change the atmosphere by entering as a substitute. Today, I thought it was time to show it because it was a selection.
This season, Hyundai Capital’s average home crowd is less than 1,800. It’s shabby compared to the heat before corona. Heo Soo-bong also recalled the ‘golden age’ of those days.
“When fans visited Yu Gwan-soon Gymnasium a lot, there were many ceremonies where the players and fans worked together. Because of Corona, we played games without spectators for two years and with a small number of spectators, and there were more young players, so there was no such thing. (Choi Tae-woong) ) The coach said, ‘Try to do it like you did before.’ So we discussed a lot with the players. I think it’s only natural that the number of spectators is decreasing because the results have been bad for the past two years. I want to do better in the future so that the fans come back. “
