The director, her sisters, and herself burst into laughter.
For Lee Ye-eun (19, Korea Expressway Corporation), a ‘special rookie’ who just graduated from high school, the 3rd game of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Division Championship became an unforgettable game. This is because Kim Yeon-kyung was reborn as her special helper in her team’s 3-1 come-from-behind victory against Heungkuk Life Insurance, which she endured, and her name was imprinted on everyone.
The game was overturned with the best possible play as a one-point server. Making his first start in the second set 20-20, he started with a serve scoring across the end line. Even in the 3rd set, which was put in at a 20-21 inferiority, he shook the opponent’s receive and led the team to 2 points, and even decorated the 2nd sub ace with a target hit for Kim Mi-yeon. The victory driven by the unexpected player’s performance led to the final victory.
After graduating from Jecheon Girls’ High School, she was called by the Korea Expressway Corporation in the 3rd place in the 2nd round of the 2022-2023 season rookie draft. Although he played only 5 games in the regular season, he boasted the boldness to do his part in the championship game.
Lee Ye-eun, who visited the interview room, looked young to anyone. She didn’t know what to answer, so she was a shy “yes” girl. But she was different on the court. What is the secret?
Teachers and older sisters unanimously singled out his eccentric charm. Manager Kim Jong-min said, “I have been a coach for 20 years and I have been able to understand the players’ tendencies, but I personally like players who are ‘smart’. Ye-eun is like that,” he said with a big smile. Bae Yoo-na also said, “It was unusual from the time I came. It’s a style that listens well to requests. She said, “I think the director was able to trust me and put it in because I was good at performing operations.”
Lee Ye-eun herself also said, “I admit (that I am smart). Only the place and environment were different from when I was in high school, but the running was the same, so I was able to not be nervous,” he said with a smile. 먹튀검증
He continued, “(The sub course) was hit according to the plan. He hinted that he responded with a short hit, so he corrected it to a long hit according to the bench instructions.” When asked how to deal with the opponent’s intensive analysis in the 4th game, “I can’t do it myself. I will listen carefully to what you say,” making the interview room a sea of laughter.
His charm radiated to the end. It was when Bae Yu-na, who was expressing her determination for the remaining games, gave an exemplary answer, saying, “Rather than thinking that I will definitely go to Incheon (where Game 5 will be held), there will be good results if I accumulate points one by one.” Lee Ye-eun, who took over the baton, suddenly burst into laughter again with one word, “Let’s go to Incheon!”
The smile brought by the geek rookie saved the team from the brink. It is a road construction that needs to save this small ember. Their challenge continues in the 4th match to be held at the Gimcheon Indoor Gymnasium on the 4th.
