I’ve heard so many stories that my knees aren’t so good that there’s no problem even if I retire anytime. So, even if I retire tomorrow, I’ll do my best today. I exercised with the mindset of running. So I don’t think I have any major regrets. If I were told to go back and do it, I don’t have the confidence to work harder than I do now (laughs). I’d be lying if I said I had no regrets or regrets, but I don’t think it’s that big.”

Lastly, Kim Young-hwan said, “There are many people who cheered by the side of the fans when they were having a hard time. Since they are not leaving the professional team yet, I think there will be time to see them again at the gym. I hope you will cheer me on a lot,” he greeted the fans.
