“It’s OK to curse at a director who is stingy with praise”… Jason became a villain for KGC’s dream of ‘Spring Volleyball’

  • February 15, 2023

“You can criticize me for being a director who is stingy with praise.”

KGC Ginseng Corporation director Ko Hee-jin, who was called ‘Jason’ during the Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance era. Currently, he does not praise players in official interviews.

Of course, it has its own reasons. Instead of being satisfied with their current position, they hope to improve further, so instead of praise, they wish to show a better performance, and sometimes they criticize that they have to do better.

Even players sometimes want to be praised. After overcoming the sluggishness at the beginning of the season and currently fighting for the spring volleyball rankings, it is the mind of the KGC Ginseng Corporation players to want to be recognized by the manager after being praised.

However, director Goh Hee-jin says, “That can’t be the case.” It’s because I don’t think it means anything to receive recognition in the current position.

Coach Hee-jin Ko said, “When the time comes to praise the players, I will do so. It’s not that I don’t praise or that I’m stingy. I want to change the mindset of the players. I hope the players will become players who set their own goals and run towards them.”

He said, “The reason we haven’t been to spring volleyball for five seasons is not the problem of performance. It’s because of the attitude and mind of the players. You can criticize me for not praising me until the end of the season. I will try to change the mindset of the players.”

The players coach Koh Hee-jin nags the most are Park Eun-jin and Jung Ho-young, who are the future of Korean women’s volleyball and are in charge of the center of KGC Ginseng Corporation. Since I played in the middle blocker position during my active career, it is true that I am more interested in these two players.

In fact, the two players are drawing a better growth curve than last season. Park Eun-jin has played 28 games (98 sets) and is recording 135 points, a 47.79% fast break success rate, and 0.531 blocks per set. He currently ranks 4th in fast break, 8th in move attack, and 10th in blocking.

Jung Ho-young has already set up a personal career high season. He has played 28 games and is recording 270 points, a 53.14% fast break success rate, and 0.620 blocks per set. He sits 2nd in kicking and 6th in blocking. She is already being called the spider hand to succeed Yang Hyo-jin by many volleyball officials, and she is expected to play an active part as the main middle blocker for the Korean women’s national volleyball team in the future.

Director Ko Hee-jin said, “I tend to scold Ho-yeong a lot. He should have a little more focus. If you are satisfied with what you have now, you can end up as a player like that. We have to make him a player who can improve until the end, so that he does not remain a player who is satisfied with the present.” 토토사이트

Regarding Park Eun-jin, “Right now, Eun-jin’s one or two fast attacks are really great. After the GS Caltex match, Eun-jin cried. He has to overcome himself when the coach says something in a tough game. He has to become a better player than he is now.”

In the end, the reason coach Koh Hee-jin nags and screams is because he wants the players to do better.

Coach Heejin Ko said, “I really hope our players do well. If I only looked at the results right now, I would have continued to use Hansongi as my main player. But you have to look ahead. I hope Park Hye-min, Jung Ho-young, and Park Eun-jin grow into better players.”

Director Go Hee-jin became a villain for the growth of young players and KGC Ginseng Corporation’s dream of spring volleyball. Can the players achieve their dreams?

KGC Ginseng Corporation will play against Hyundai E&C at Daejeon Home on the 17th.
