“I think that being able to shed tears on the court means that I am passionate about what I do and that I am that eager.”
After a long rebuilding, Hyundai Capital achieved the result of 2nd place in the regular league in the 2022-2023 season and runner-up in the championship match. Although the come-from-behind championship I so wanted was not achieved, I tasted spring volleyball in four seasons after the 2018-2019 season.카지노사이트
It has been a long time since Hyundai Capital has entered spring volleyball, but it has not been able to come out with 100% power. Captain Jeon Kwang-in suffered an ankle injury in the regular league match against KEPCO in the 6th round and was out of the team. Since he was an electrician who occupied a large portion of the team, the gap was expected to be large.
Director Choi Tae-woong alternately put Kim Seon-ho and Hong Dong-seon in the position of Jeon Kwang-in. However, it was not enough to satisfy director Choi Tae-woong, and in the end, Choi Tae-woong took out a new card called Lee Si-woo.
Lee Si-woo, who started as a starter in the 4th set of the 2nd game of the semi-playoff against KEPCO, showed the effect. He endured the KEPCO’s serve toward him and saw the light with his own long-term serve. In the 4th set, when they were trailing 23-24, Lee Si-woo, who received the serve, shook KEPCO’s receive with a strong serve, causing the ball to come back to the Hyundai Capital court, and Park Sang-ha scored and tied the score.
Lee Si-woo, who caught the ball again, scored a direct serve this time, bringing the mood to Hyundai Capital. With Lee Si-woo’s performance, Hyundai Capital took the 4th set, and the match continued into the 5th set.
The 5th set, which was not easily off balance, continued to deuce. And 16-16, KEPCO Cho Geun-ho caught the ball and used a target hit serve toward Lee Si-woo. Lee Si-woo tried to receive, but the ball left him went to the back of the court instead of the setter, and Jo Keun-ho scored on the serve. Lee Si-woo, who had endured well, gave his opponent the victory with just one mistake.
After the game, Lee Si-woo was seen shedding hot tears. However, Lee Si-woo did not collapse and led the team to victory in the 3rd game as a starter.
Lee Si-woo, who met at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Seoul, where the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Awards Ceremony was held on the 10th, said, “I cried because I was the cause of the team’s defeat. Still, he thinks that being able to shed tears on the court meant that I was passionate about what I was doing and that I was just as eager,” he recalled.
Lee Si-woo announced that Hyundai Capital manager Choi Tae-woong had come to the room after the game that day. “The director came to my room and said, ‘Why do men cry over things like that? It’s not over yet, so let’s prepare well for the rest of the game.” Hearing those words, I was also comforted. Thanks to the director, there are no scars left in my heart.”
Lee Si-woo, who looked back on the 2022-2023 season, said, “It was a shame that he couldn’t be with his fans while he was in the army. Still, it was a happy season because I was able to show a lot of images after being discharged from the military this season,” he said with a smile.
Now, Lee Si-woo and Hyundai Capital prepare for the 2023-2024 season with a short break. “The end of this season was disappointing, but I will run to win the 2023-2024 season. Personally, I felt that this season had the potential for my improvement, but next season, I want to show a little bit more of myself on the court, and I want to show a better side of myself as a starter.”
