‘Military Service Corruption’ Cho Jae-seong was stripped of his participation in the All-Star Game… Kwak Seung-seok replaced
Professional volleyball player Jo Jae-seong (27, OK Financial Group), who was involved in suspicion of corruption in military service, was prevented from participating in the V-League All-Star Game in the 2022-2023 season.
The Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) announced on the 6th that “Korean Air Kwak Seung-seok and Pepper Savings Bank Nia Reid have been decided as substitute players for the All-Star Game for OK Financial Group Cho Jae-seong and Hyundai Engineering & Construction Yasmin Bedart (registered name Yasmin).”
Cho Jae-sung was originally selected as an M-star on the recommendation of the federation advisory committee. However, the suspicion of corruption in the military service of Cho Jae-sung became controversial. On December 27 of last year, OK Financial Group announced that “Cho Jae-sung voluntarily reported to the club that he was involved in military service corruption and was scheduled to be investigated by an investigative agency.” “I am a participant in military service corruption,” he virtually acknowledged the fact of military service corruption. 메이저놀이터
Cho Jae-seong, who was eligible for active duty enlistment, is suspected of receiving a 4th grade supplemental service with the help of a so-called military service broker. He was said to have been exempted from or reduced from military service due to false epileptic symptoms. The Seoul Southern District Prosecutor’s Office, which is investigating the case, is known to have summoned Cho Jae-seong and investigate, while also conducting investigations into other athletes such as equestrian and bowling.
Kwak Seung-seok was chosen as the substitute for Cho Jae-seong. Kwak Seung-seok is the player who ranked 4th in fan voting following Na Gyeong-bok, Moon Seong-min, and Jeon Kwang-in, who were selected as all-stars among M-star strikers. Kwak Seung-seok scored 131 points in 19 games this season. His attack success rate is 46.90%.
Nia Reed took the place of Yasmin, who was unable to compete due to herniated disc surgery. Nia Reid received 17,906 votes, the most among foreign strikers.
The Dodram 2022-2023 V-League All-Star Game will be held on January 29, 2023 at Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium.
