‘Failing to make everyone laugh’ sets the tone for media day
Busan KCC Aegis guard Heo Woong showed off his off-court coordination skills at the media day.
On the 16th, the opening media day of the 2023-2024 Jeonggwanjang Professional Basketball League was held at the Olympic Parktel in Songpa-gu, Seoul. Coaches and players from 10 teams attended the event to reveal their plans and aspirations for the season.
Heo Woong attended the event as a representative of KCC alongside head coach Jeon Chang-jin.
Much attention was paid to KCC, which has built an ultra-luxury squad ahead of the season.
Eight out of 10 coaches have named KCC as the favorite to win the championship. Heoong responded to this assessment by saying, “There is pressure on the name of the favorite. However, it’s not easy for me to play with such a good teammate in my career,” he said, adding, “I really want to do well this season.”
This was followed by a nasty question from Moon Sung-gon of KT Suwon. When asked why he attended the media day in casual clothes, he said, “I was confused because everyone was wearing suits. I wanted to lighten the mood of the media day by wearing casual clothes. Next year, I hope everyone will come in bright colors,” he said with a laugh.
After answering the questions with wit, Heo Woong asked his senior, Lee Jung Hyun of Samsung in Seoul, for his body care tips, saying, “I feel like I’m getting younger with each passing year.” Lee Jung Hyun replied, “I’m curious to know the secret of how you live your life.” 메이저사이트
“It’s like I’m telling you to feel good,” Lee said, “I showed you enough when we were roommates on the national team. Heo Woong is also a player who takes good care of his body, but I think it’s because of me.” He laughed.
Heo led the atmosphere of the media day with his calm sentiments, witty answers, and heartwarming questions.
Meanwhile, the regular season will begin on March 21 with the official opening game between Anyang Jungkwanjang and Seoul SK, and will end on March 31 next year.
