‘Woori Card Returns’ Han Sung-jung “Thank you KB, I’m sorry, I’ll seize the new opportunity”

Han Sung-jeong (27) returned to her “home team” Woori Card after a year and a half. Outside hitter Han Sung-jung, who will wear blue again, said she was “nervous” at the news of the trade, but vowed to “live up to the expectations since they chose me again.”
The Woori Card announced that they sent setter Hwang Seung-bin (30) to KB Insurance in a one-for-one trade on the 25th and received outside hitter Han Sung-jung.
Han was selected by the Woori Card with the No. 1 overall pick in the rookie draft ahead of the 2017-18 season. He played four seasons for the Woori Card, helping the team reach its first postseason appearance in franchise history and reach the championship game.
However, he moved to KB Sonbo via trade in December 2021. He didn’t do too badly in KB. In his first season with the franchise, he helped lead them to their first-ever championship and back-to-back championships.
However, things changed ahead of the 2023-24 season. KB Sonbo brought in national outside hitter Na Kyung-bok via free agency and re-signed Hwang Kyung-min in the same position. In addition, they drafted Taiwanese national outside hitter Liu Hung-min through the Asia Quarterfinals. Han Sung-jung was given less playing time.
Eventually, KB Sonbo, who needed a setter due to Hwang Taek-ui’s (National Armed Forces Athletic Corps) enlistment, traded for Hwang Seung-bin as the two teams had a good fit.
In a conversation with News1 on the 25th, Han Sung-jung said, “I was contacted the day before (24th), so I expected it to a certain extent, but when I heard the news of the actual trade, I felt a little embarrassed.” “I have some regrets, but Woori Card needed me, so I have to do well in the team,” he said.
It’s his first comeback in 18 months. He will be reunited with his old teammates on the 26th at Incheon Songlim Gymnasium, Woori Card’s training center. “In a way, I’m lucky that the team I was traded to was Woori Card,” Han Sung-jeong said, adding, “I played with them not too long ago, so I’m not unfamiliar with them.”
He was also contacted by middle blocker Park Jin-woo, who recently returned to the Woori Card as compensation for Na Kyung-bok. “He laughed and said, ‘I was lonely when I went alone, but I’m glad you came,'” Han Sung-jung said, adding, “I’m sure I’ll be able to adapt well because I have many former teammates.”
After expressing his gratitude and apologies to KB Sonbo, where he played for a year and a half, Han Sung-jung vowed to excel in his new team.
“I feel like I didn’t live up to my expectations at KB Thornbo, so I’m both grateful and sorry,” he said, “I had a lot of good memories in Uijeongbu. I will keep my gratitude for everyone in my heart.”
Now that he’s back on the Jangchung court, he vowed to soar even higher as a starter. 토토사이트
“What I lacked in Woori Card in the past, I will fill in well this time and overcome,” Han Sung-jung said, “In a way, I thought I had a chance. Rather than regret, I will definitely seize the opportunity given to me by Woori Card.”
