‘The second Kim Yeon-kyung? Yang Hyo-jin!’ KGC Ginseng Corporation Jung Ho-young blooms as a middle blocker

KGC Ginseng Corporation Jeong Ho-young (22), who was evaluated as ‘post Kim Yeon-kyung’, blossomed as a middle blocker (center) representing the V-League this season. He became a player worthy of succeeding Yang Hyo-jin (34, Hyundai Construction), not Kim Yeon-kyung (35, Heungkuk Life Insurance).

Jeong Ho-young led the set score 3-1 victory by scoring 21 points in the 4th round away match of the women’s division of the ‘Dodram 2022-2023 V-League’ against Heungkuk Life Insurance at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 25th. She scored 18 points on offense alone, 14 of which came on the fast break. This season, in the quick attack success rate, it was second place (53.02%) after Yang Hyo-jin (56.16%). If you look at the number of her successes alone, she has a large presence in the center, with 114 being the most.

This season, she has perfectly positioned herself as a middle blocker, but Ho-Young Chung’s original position was an outside hitter (left). Even when he made his professional debut in the 2019-2020 season after conquering the high school stage with his overwhelming physical condition (190 cm), he was expected to become Kim Yeon-kyung’s successor. However, due to her weak defense, she showed her limitations in the outside heater position, and transformed into a middle blocker in the 2020-2021 season. After her injury rehabilitation period and adaptation period, she was reborn as the core of Ginseng Corporation in the 2022-2023 season. 스포츠토토

Now, Jung Ho-young is evaluated as the right person to fill the vacancy of Yang Hyo-jin, who left her national team. Setter Yeom Hye-seon, who worked with Yang Hyo-jin in her national team, expressed great anticipation, saying, “I usually say to Ho-young, ‘Let’s do well like Hyo-jin’s sister.”

Ginseng Corporation coach Koh Hee-jin, who appointed Jung Ho-young as the starting pitcher this season, owes a lot of credit. Director Goh’s judgment was accurate, saying, “If veteran Han Song-i was the center, it would have been stable, but in the final ranking battle, Jeong Ho-young needs to be good.”

Director Ko praised him, saying, “He has good physical condition and is even smart,” but the secret to Jung Ho-young’s growth is repetitive training. He said, “The director usually criticizes more than praises.” “I don’t use my brain badly, but it takes time to understand and make it mine. He has no choice but to train over and over again,” he said forcefully.
