Kim Sun-hyung and Oh Se-geun, who faced off as rivals in last season’s championship final, will now play on the same side of the court. Seoul SK held a joint press conference with Kim Sun-hyung following the signing of Oh Se-geun.
SK held a joint press conference with Kim Sun-hyung at the KBL Centre in Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the 8th to celebrate the signing of Oh Se-geun. SK announced on the 18th of last month that it had “signed free agent (FA) Oh Se-geun for a three-year contract with a total first-year salary of 750 million won.”먹튀검증
Oh’s move to SK is notable because SK has Kim Sun-hyung. Oh and Kim were teammates at Chung-Ang University, where they won 52 consecutive games and were undefeated. Kim Sun-hyung greeted the signing, saying, “I’m Kim Sun-hyung, happy that (Oh) Se-geun-hyung came.” He also said, “Personally, I really wanted him to come. I was cautious because he is a free agent. I called him once because he didn’t sign the contract. I was praying and waiting.”
“Of course, I didn’t sign because of (Kim) Sun-hyung’s call. But we talked a lot because it made me look back on my childhood memories and I thought I could do it again. I’m getting older, but I think I have a better chance. I’m worried about it, but I’ll get through it,” he said.
As for the ‘old man’ nickname for older basketball players, Kim said he really doesn’t like it, but it reminds him of a line from the drama Douglas. “I remember the line, ‘You’ll always be young. Will you still be young next year?” he said, revealing that at the championship media day, he was Moon Dong-eun, but now he is Park Yeon-jin. He continued, “The MVPs were all seniors, and I think it’s rude to snipe at the memories of the five years we played together. I hope our fans won’t be hurt,” he explained.
When asked about KCC competing with Jeonju for the title with the transfer of Choi Jun-yong, Kim said, “Se-geun’s brother came and (Choi) Jun-yong was transferred. We’ll see. KT and LG also seem to have improved,” he replied.
When asked about SK’s basketball philosophy, Oh said, “I heard it’s called running basketball. But it’s not just running constantly like in the past. The basketball I’ve always played is according to all the coaches. I can adapt to the basketball that the coach thinks. There’s no particular pressure. If it goes well, I can discover a new side of myself,” he said with confidence.
In conclusion, Oh said, “I heard some bad things because of my injury, but I played with more determination. That’s why I am who I am today. If I hadn’t received such feedback, I wouldn’t have improved. If you’re going to be bitter with me, I’m going to be ready to move up. I’m in a new team, but I’ll do my best to not be the same person on the team as usual,” he said.
