Surprising Opposite Transformation Jinjiwi “Give me more balls”

Korean Air defeated OK Financial Group 3-2 in the second Group A match of the 2023 Gumi Dodram Cup Professional Volleyball Tournament (KOVO Cup) held at Park Chung-hee Gymnasium in Gumi on the 8th.

Earlier, Korean Air, which defeated Woori Card 3-0 on the 6th, was thrilled to win two consecutive games with only 10 players.

Korean Air selected Lim Dong-hyuk, Jung Ji-seok, Kim Kyu-min, and Kim Min-jae as the national team, Jeong Han-yong and Song Min-geun were selected for the Universiade national team, and Kang Seung-il , who was selected for the U19 national team, was also absent.

However, Korean Air, with veteran setter Yoo Kwang-woo and outside hitter Kwak Seung-seok , is sticking together and is showing a performance that does not easily collapse. Lee Joon (24), the 4th option outside hitter in the team, is active as the main gun, and all attackable players are hitting spikes in various positions.

In the OK Financial Group match on the 8th, Jin Ji-wi, who transformed into an apogee, was also unusual. He had played an apogee during his time at Kyunghee University, but it was not an easy role for Jinji, who had always played in the center.

Jin Ji-wi did not hit many balls with a 10% attack share, but he did his part with 10 points and a 60% attack success rate. At the beginning of the 5th set, he roared as he blocked the opponent’s main gun Cha Ji-hwan’s quick open.

After the game, Jin Ji-wi smiled and said, “I can hit as many times as I want.”

Prior to the KOVO Cup, Jin Ji-wi, who had prepared not only as a middle blocker but also as an apogee due to team circumstances, seemed confident in his role in an unfamiliar position.

He said, “(Aposite) is unfamiliar, but I was already preparing during practice,” he said. “Back attacks are difficult, but hitting is confident in any position.”

Jin Ji-wi, who joined Korean Air in the 6th place in the 1st round of the 2019-20 season, joined the team through special naturalization at the time, but his performance so far did not live up to expectations. He played in 29 games, the most since joining in the 2020-21 season, but later suffered injuries and only played 16 games and 2 games in two seasons.

Amid fierce competition, Jin Ji-wi is hungry for more matches. He said, “I don’t care where I play as long as the team can win. I will try harder on the court.”
