It will be very interesting because coach Kim Seung-gi is the medium. I’m glad he’s not me (laughs).”
The semi-final playoff between Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation and Goyang Carrot, which draws more attention than ever, will be held from the 13th in a best-of-five system.
Carrot coach Kim Seung-gi and Jeon Seong-hyun have been active at KGC Ginseng Corporation until last season and have a deep relationship스포츠토토. It arouses curiosity about what kind of game they will play against their old team, KGC Ginseng Corporation.
Here, the face-to-face confrontation between Byun Jun-hyung and Lee Jung-hyun, who are director Kim Seung-gi’s favorite students, is interesting.
When director Kim Seung-gi mentioned Lee Jung-hyun, he often mentioned Byun Jun-hyung.
On the 10th, ahead of the 5th game of the semi-final playoff against Hyundai Mobis in Ulsan, coach Kim Seung-gi said, “I don’t know what Lee Jung-hyun will do in the future, but basketball can improve a lot in the future. It will be better next season. He gave homework saying that he had to win the MVP, not the skill development award,” he said. He was nominated for MVP this season. It’s about that level. If Jeong-hyeon has a pair of years, it will be like that. Jeon Seong-hyeon has also become an MVP level, and Jung-hyeon will also be.”
Even ahead of Game 5, Carrot’s chances of making the semifinal playoffs seemed slim. However, like a miracle, Carrot beats Hyundai Mobis and stands proudly in front of KGC Ginseng Corporation.
Coach Seung-gi Kim once again projected Lee Jung-hyun’s future onto Byun Jun-hyung after confirming his advance to the quarterfinals playoffs.
“So far, Byun Jun-hyung is better, but now (Lee Jung-hyun) has to win. In the past, when I was with Junhyung, I told him to beat Samsung’s Junghyun Lee. They said that you have to beat Lee Jung-hyun to succeed and receive a huge reward. You did great. Even when winning 10 consecutive wins (in the playoffs in the 2020-2021 season), Junhyung held onto Lee Junghyun. Now, little Lee Jung-hyun must defeat Byun Jun-hyung to take control of KBL. Professional basketball becomes more fun when Jung Hyun-i grows up and beats (the best) Kim Seon-hyung and Byun Jun-hyung among the guards.”
Lee Jung-hyun, who heard the words of manager Kim Seung-gi, said, “(Byun Jun-hyung) was an MVP candidate. I will try to hit hard. He said, “I won’t lose easily in a matchup.”
How will Lee Jae-do, who ate rice with director Kim Seung-gi at KT and KGC Ginseng Corporation and worked with Byun Jun-hyung, view the confrontation between Lee Jung-hyun and Byun Jun-hyung?
Lee Jae-do said, “The media will also cover it, so it will be burdensome for each other. In words, they will say that they enjoy it and do not care, but there will be pressure,” he said. “It will also be a matchup throughout the game. Director Kim Seung-gi is the medium, so it will be very interesting. He said, “I’m glad it’s not me because I can watch it from a third person’s point of view (laughs)”.
Lee Jae-do can lead LG to the championship match only when he breaks through the defense of Choi Won-hyuk and Oh Jae-hyun, who are juniors from Hanyang University, and surpasses actual MVP Kim Sun-hyung, not a player looking for the regular league MVP.
The semi-final playoff between Changwon LG and Seoul SK will also be an exciting guard showdown. The semi-final playoffs between LG and SK will start on the 14th.
