Men’s professional volleyball national team’s three young guns, Lim Dong-hyuk (24), Jeong Han-yong (22), and Kim Min-jae (20), together with their team, Korean Air, will conquer Asia.

Korean Air will represent Korea at the 2023 Asian Men’s Club Volleyball Championship, which opens in Manama, Bahrain on the 14th (local time). Korean Air, assigned to Group A, will play its first match against Australia on the 14th and play 7 matches over 8 days until the 21st.

Setter Han and middle blocker Kim Gyu-min will not play in order to adjust their condition. Foreign player Lincoln Williams, the main gun, also did not join. Apposite spiker Lim Dong-hyuk, outside hitter Jeong Han-yong, and middle blocker Kim Min-jae have become more important.

Lim Dong-hyuk said, “Although he is not very old, he seems to have to take responsibility as the team’s ace. There is synergy between the older brothers, but there is also synergy among younger players, so if we use it well, I think we will be able to achieve good results in this tournament.”

He continued, “I heard that all teams come out at their best. It would be nice to win, but rather than focus too much on winning, I want to clearly show Korean Air’s unique color. Then it seems to rise to a high position,” he added.

Jeong Han-yong said, “This tournament is a great opportunity for us as well. I will prepare well,” he said. “Even if it is not a win, it will be a very good experience. I will do my best without getting hurt.” He said, “Even in the V-League last season, (Kwak) Seung-seok used to be put into the game to replace his older brother. I will pay more attention to receiving in this tournament as well.”

Kim Min-jae said, “It’s been a while since I’ve been representing Korea, and everyone seems to be enjoying it. It is half excitement and half expectation.” “I came with the thought of ‘let’s win’. I will do my best so that good results can come out.”

Dmitri Mushalsky of Japan’s Suntory Sunbirds, who is considered the world’s best in the same position, will participate in this tournament. Kim Min-jae said, “I think I will learn a lot if I play against good players. Even if I stick with those players, I will do it with the thought that I will win unconditionally.”토스카지노

After the tournament, Kim Min-jae, along with Kim Gyu-min, Lim Dong-hyuk, and Jeong Han-yong, will move to the Jincheon National Training Center to join the national team. He said, “If I get good results in Bahrain, I think my skills and confidence will increase a lot. I will do my best to finish the tournament well and show a better image when I go to the national team.”

This tournament is an international tournament hosted by the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC). Men’s volleyball clubs from Asian countries representing 16 countries, including Korea, Australia, Bahrain, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Taiwan, Afghanistan, Japan, Thailand, Mongolia, Yemen, Kazakhstan, Qatar, Hong Kong and Kuwait, will participate.
