Why did Shin Young-seok give a bouquet to a junior from another team?

A rare scene came out at the V-League awards ceremony. Kim Jun-woo (23, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance), who won the rookie award, received a bouquet of flowers from Shin Young-seok (37, KEPCO), a senior from another team.

Kim Jun-woo won the Men’s Regular League Rookie Award at the 2022-2023 Dodram V-League Awards Ceremony held at the Grand Hyatt Seoul Grand Ballroom in Yongsan-gu, Seoul on the 10th. Out of 31 reporters’ votes, he received 18 votes, ahead of Lee Hyun-seung (Hyundai Capital) with 13 votes, by 5 votes, and was honored with the Rookie of the Year award, which was only once in his life.

Kim Jun-woo, who graduated from Hongik University, was nominated by Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance in the 3rd place in the first round in this rookie draft. He participated in 35 games this season and played an active role with a 203-point attack success rate of 52.61%, and was recognized for his potential by achieving results such as 6th in blocking (0.543 per set) and 10th in fast break (53.17%).

Kim Jun-woo, who was on the podium, said, “I am grateful to coach Kim Sang-woo and high school and university coaches who believed in me and gave me a chance. I want to express my gratitude to the fans who always believe in me and support me.” He then smiled broadly, saying, “I think I had the best season because I finished the season well and even received a good award.”

Kim Jun-woo caught the eye with an exciting rookie award ceremony. As a promise to win the award, he danced the girl group New Jeans’ “High Mouth Boy” without any accompaniment to liven up the atmosphere.

This season, Kim Jun-woo competed with Hyundai Capital setter Lee Hyun-seung for the rookie award. Kim Jun-woo’s Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance was at the bottom of the regular league, and Lee Hyun-seung contributed to Hyundai Capital’s achievements such as second place in the regular league and runner-up in the championship match. However, Kim Jun-woo (35 games) was evaluated as being ahead of Lee Hyun-seung (26 games) in participating games and won the rookie award. 토스카지노

Kim Jun-woo, who came into the interview room after the awards ceremony, hinted that he had beaten Lee Hyun-seung to win the Rookie of the Year award, saying, “I also thought (the odds) were about half-and-half.” He continued, “I think it was helpful for me to show my progress as the rounds went by.”

Kim Jun-woo, who was a middle blocker, showed rapid growth under the guidance of Samsung Fire & Marine Manager Kim Sang-woo. He said, “I was slow when I first came to the pro, but it was helpful to try to resemble the coach’s active days.” He continued, “Personally, I was not satisfied this season, but I will show a better figure next year by working hard during the off-season.”
