Reporter Kwon Hyeok-joon = Hyun-seung Lee (22, Hyundai Capital), who immediately took the starting position in the team in the first professional season. As Hyundai Capital, which had been on an upward curve, took the lead, Lee Hyun-seung instantly became the ‘leading team’s main setter’.

Lee Hyun-seung said, “It is true that there is pressure or burden,” but he said, “If I, the setter, do not do well, the team will lose. I will try to do it confidently with a sense of responsibility.”

Hyundai Capital won a complete victory with a set score of 3-0 (25-23 25-21 25-18) in the Dodram 2022-23 V-League men’s match against Woori Card held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Jung-gu, Seoul on the 24th.

Hyundai Capital, which won 5 consecutive wins, achieved a season record of 21 wins and 10 losses (64 points), beating Korean Air (21 wins and 9 losses, 62 points), who played one less game, and regained the lead.

Lee Hyun-seung, who was nominated by Hyundai Capital as the second overall pick after Shin Shin-jin (OK Financial Group) in the rookie draft held in October of last year, quickly took the starting position. There are experienced setters such as Kim Myeong-gwan and Lee Won-joong, but coach Choi Tae-woong gave Lee Hyun-seung his trust over time.

Lee Hyeon-seung is also living up to his director’s expectations. Even in his early days, there were scenes where he could not get along with the strikers, but gradually he showed his college skills in the pros as well.

He said, “I remember being more nervous than when I was drafted when I was told to go out as a starting player,” he said.

He added, “There are a lot of people from the national team, and there are a lot of hyungs who have excellent individual abilities.”

In particular, his team ace, Heo Soo-bong, has improved his chemistry. This is thanks to Heo Soo-bong’s hard work, such as going to night training for a junior setter.

Lee Hyun-seung also said, “We train together a lot and watch videos together, and we get along well.”

Hyundai Capital is currently competing fiercely with Korean Air for the lead. The difference in points is 1-2 points, and the ranking changes after each match. 메이저놀이터

It is not an easy situation for Lee Hyeon-seung, who is in charge of a heavy duty. In response, coach Choi Tae-woong put Kim Myeong-gwan and Lee Won-joong in place of Lee Hyeon-seung at the end of the game to relieve the pressure.

Lee Hyeon-seung said, “The director gives direct instructions at important moments, but leaves it to me in situations where I can afford it.”

Coach Choi, who had a reputation as the best setter during his active career, highly evaluates Lee Hyun-seung’s potential.

Director Choi said, “(Lee) Hyun-seung is already playing a much better role than expected and expected.”
