Kang Iseul, who was selected as one of the biggest FA players, chose to stay at KB.
Kang Iseul (180cm, F) joined Cheongju KB ahead of the 2021-2022 season. In the first year of his joining, he recorded a combined championship and fully proved his worth.
However, last season, KB and Kang Iseul struggled somewhat. Due to the frequent injuries of his teammates, Kang Isul’s shoulders have become heavier. His long-term 3-point shot success rate was also only 29%. Still, he was the team’s ace, averaging 15.2 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists, leading the team. However, despite Kang Isul’s performance, KB only ranked 5th last season.
Kang I-seul, who had a disappointing season, said, “(Park) Ji-soo was sick last year, and other players were also sick. But the bigger thing was that I was personally indolent. After winning, he neglected the training he had been doing. He didn’t do well in shooting practice or sore spot exercises,” he said in his overall review of last season.
He continued, “This season, I will hold my mind again and build my body first. At the same time, I will increase my shooting accuracy again.” 메이저놀이터
Ahead of this off-season, Kang I-seul obtained FA status. Kang Dew’s choice was to stay. The terms of his contract were 3 years and 350 million won. When asked why he stayed at KB, he said, “I didn’t worry too much. He had a strong desire to recover his disappointing appearance in KB last year. He wanted to build his ego with the team.”
Asan Woori Bank won the championship last season with an overwhelming appearance from the regular season to the playoffs and the championship match. It is a mountain that KB must overcome in order to win.
That’s why Iseul Kang said, “All Woori Bank players are very seasoned. He also has a lot of winning experience. (Kim) Jung has her older sister out, but she is still at the top and can aim for the championship. I think she will have to go over our bank to win,” she said.
But she said, “We did 5th last season. From our point of view, not only Woori Bank but also all clubs must overcome. I think we have to prepare for that,” she said, holding other teams in check.
KB recruited Kim Ye-jin (174cm, F) this off-season. Kim Ye-jin had already eaten one pot rice with Kang Isul during Hana One Q. Kang Yi-seul said, “I just thought it would be nice if (Kim) Ye-jin came to KB. It’s so nice to see him come for real. Yejin and I were very close. It’s nice to be on the same team again. I haven’t joined yet, so I don’t feel it,” she said. I will help Ye-jin like that,” she said, welcoming Kim Ye-jin’s transfer.
