Once again OK! Jin Sang-heon’s fierce determination “I will prepare more earnestly”
Jin Sang-heon and OK Financial Group’s companionship continues.
After the 2022-2023 season, Jin Sang-heon, who obtained free agent status (FA), chose to accompany OK Financial Group once again. Jin Sang-heon signed a new contract with a total amount of 200 million won, which is more than doubled from the previous total of 430 million won (annual salary of 400 million won, option of 30 million won).
Jin Sang-heon, who recently had a phone call with <The Spike>, said, “I am happy to be able to work with OK Financial Group again after signing my first contract with OK Financial Group three years ago as a free agent. I am happy to be able to play volleyball again with the players I worked with.”
At the time of the transfer to OK Financial Group three years ago, Jin Sang-heon was the club’s first FA transfer student. That’s why not only the club but also the players meant a lot to each other. Jin Sang-heon also said, “While living at OK Financial Group, I felt that there was a big heart for each other. The team atmosphere was like a family. I was very surprised when I first came, and while exercising together, there were many friends who were juniors but had a lot to learn from.”
In the 2020-2021 season, when it nested as OK Financial Group, it dramatically rose to the postseason. And in the semi-playoff, he stepped on the playoff stage by defeating KB Insurance, which was led by Keita Noumori at the time.
But after that, I couldn’t get any clear results. From the 2021-2022 season to the 2022-2023 season, he failed to step on the spring volleyball stage while finishing in 5th place in two seasons.
Jin Sang-heon also said, “I was a member who could definitely advance to spring volleyball, but it was regrettable that I couldn’t advance. However, this part will be a great motivation to prepare for this off-season. I will prepare with more earnestness,” expressing regret and conceiving the next season.
In addition, “It was a pity that I couldn’t play a little more diversely. Despite having a good foreign player named Leo, his grades were not good. Leo did his part well, but his local players didn’t. If there were more plays by domestic players, there would have been good synergy, but it’s a pity that we couldn’t.”
The team performance was disappointing, but the individual performance also fell short of expectations. Compared to the season when I first transferred, most of the records fell. In response, “I have a big desire to do well as a player, but it’s very unfortunate that I couldn’t. What is lacking is that you have to work harder in the off-season. I got the homework that I need to get better at breathing with my teammates, including the setter,” he replied.토토사이트
Jin Sang-heon has become a veteran who has spent 15 seasons in the pro. He showed a willingness to help his team as much as he took the initiative. “When I get on the court, I always want to work hard and show my best. Since my juniors are also professional players, I expect that if I show them first, they will be stimulated and compete with each other, and it will have a good effect.”
While OK Financial Group is likely to renew the contract with Leo, it has finished accompanying director Seok Jin-wook. OK Financial Group and Jin Sang-heon, who are facing new changes, are definitely at the top in the upcoming season and look at spring volleyball.
Finally, Jin Sang-heon said, “It is good to be with OK Financial Group again. I will never forget the support of the fans who always come to Ansan Gymnasium to support me. As much as it is always a source of strength, I will do my best to prepare during the off-season and show a good image next season.”
