I didn’t even wear a shirt and tie, but I wanted to greet the home fans with a more neat and polite appearance, unlike the away game against Hyundai Mobis on the 7th, where I played in comfortable sportswear as it was my first home game after taking over as acting manager.

On the 5th, acting coach Lee Sang-beom resigned during the season, and acting coach Kim Joo-seong, who hastily inherited the baton, said in a phone call with a reporter on the 18th, “I was a little nervous and nervous because it was my first home game.” It was a new feeling to lead the team, and I had a strong desire to show a better image to the fans.”

In KBL, there are not many cases where an acting manager who took over the baton during the season became the manager right away the next season. There are Yoo Jae-hak (Daewoo), Kim Jin, Kim Sang-sik (Lee Sang-dong), Jeon Chang-jin (TG), Yoo Do-hoon (KT&G), Chu Seung-gyun (KCC), etc. Coach Kim Young-man was promoted after acting as manager in the 2013-2014 season and led the DB for three seasons.

In KBL, Jeon Hee-chul (SK) and Jo Sang-hyeon (LG) coaches are making a name for themselves as commanding towers from their team. Anyang KGC coach Kim Sang-shik is a former SBS player. Previously, Moon Kyung-eun (SK), Lee Sang-min (Samsung), Choo Seung-gyun (KCC), and Hyun Joo-yeop (LG) were active as star coaches from their teams.
