For Lim, 2022 was a year of growth, as she earned her first national team roster and experienced the world stage at the 2022 FIVB Challenger Cup.안전놀이터
She also played in all 36 matches for the first time in the third year of the 2022-2023 season, posting 306 points, a 49.68% attack percentage, and an eighth-ranked defense (37.01% receiving efficiency, 1,407 digs per set). She also made a big impact in the playoffs, leading KEPCO to its first-ever postseason victory.
This year’s men’s team has undergone a generational change, with more young players than veterans. With the exception of Cho Jae-young (Korean Air) and Oh Jae-sung (Woori Card), all are in their 20s.
Speaking to the press, Lim Sung-jin said, “I’m grateful to be recognized for growing up around me. There are differences in training for the national team compared to training for the club team, but I am working hard with the responsibility of being a national team member. I think it will be a good experience, and the better we do, the more popular men’s volleyball will become.”안전사이트
Lim Dong-hyuk (Korean Air) and Park Kyung-min (Hyundai Capital) will be joined by Kim Ji-han and Lee Sang-hyun (Woori Card), who were born in 1999. There are also players younger than him, including Jeong Jung-yong, Kim Min-jae (Korean Air), and Kim Jun-woo (Samsung Fire).
“There are advantages and disadvantages to having a younger team,” he said, “but it’s good to have a similar age group, so we have a lot of energy in training. Rather than one person leading the team, we are all working together,” he explained.
“I think the best lineup would be Jeong Ji-seok at outside hitter and either Lim Sung-jin or Hwang Kyung-min at outside hitter,” said Lim Do-heon, head coach of the Korean men’s national volleyball team. In his second year with the national team, Lim has evolved into the player he is today. “An outside hitter has to take on many roles, from offense to defense. I want to do a good job overall,” he said of his responsibilities.
He will play an important role in the rebound. The team will travel to Taipei, Taiwan, for the AVC Challenger Cup on July 6.
