Park Eun-jin is growing up.
KGC Ginseng Corporation middle blocker Park Eun-jin (24) is evaluated as a lumber that will lead Korean women’s volleyball as well as KGC Ginseng Corporation in the future. Since her high school days, she has been called a large middle blocker prospect. She entered the pro with the second overall pick in the 2018 women’s rookie draft.
Since the 2018-19 season, which was her debut season, she has been consistently given opportunities to play. However, it was true that she had 2% regrets. Her impact was less compared to her peers, such as Lee Joo-ah (Heungkuk Life Insurance) and Jeong Ji-yoon (Hyundai E&C). She also wasn’t laughing due to her back-to-back ankle injury.
However, Park Eun-jin is breaking down the wall in front of her and growing. He is walking little by little based on the experience he has accumulated in international competitions such as the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
He participated in all 28 games the team played this season and recorded 135 points, a 47.79% fast break success rate, and 0.531 blocks per set, firmly guarding the center line of KGC Ginseng Corporation along with Jeong Ho-young. 4th in fast attack, 10th in blocking. His 0.531 blocks per set is a career high.
In the match against GS Caltex held at Jangchung Gymnasium on the 12th, Park Eun-jin and Jeong Ho-young firmly defended the center. He scored 8 points, including 3 blocks, and contributed a little to the team’s 3-1 victory and recaptured 4th place.
And Park Eun-jin shed tears after it was over. He knows that his performance is still lacking, and he must have shed tears from the relief that his team won an important game. Park Eun-jin bought 2% regret from Koh Hee-jin, director of KGC Ginseng Corporation, with two rooms and one room that was not marked on the record sheet without knowing or knowing.
After the match, coach Hee-jin Koh said, “Right now, Eun-jin’s one or two fast attacks are a real boost,” but “Eun-jin cried after the game. He has to overcome himself when the coach says something in a tough game. He has to become a better player than he is now.” 온라인바카라
At the same time, he said, “Because I am with (Jeong) Hoyoung now, I can feel a sense of rivalry, and on the other hand, synergy can occur. I hope that Park Eun-jin will also do it with that thought.”
Jeong Ho-young also said, “Although the expected results did not come out, I wonder if it was tears of relief because the team won.”
He is breaking the wall in front of himself and growing little by little. The trauma of his injury is also being erased little by little. Cesar Hernandez Gonzalez, the women’s volleyball team coach, also highly evaluates Park Eun-jin’s potential. In the future, she is called as a player who should protect the center line of Korean women’s volleyball along with Lee Da-hyun (Hyundai E&C), Jeong Ho-young and Lee Joo-ah.
Head coach Ko Hee-jin said, “It has definitely improved from the beginning of the season. He is catching the opponent in the center,” he said. “Park Eun-jin, Park Hye-min, and Jung Ho-young are important players. I want to grow into a better player.”
