“ Seeing (Kim) Min-jae ranked second, it seems that people who like volleyball picked him based on his skills. The reason he was selected as an All-Star was because of his skills, not his looks.
Shin Young-seok said, “At first, I thought it was a coincidence, but seeing that many fans like it for 3 consecutive years, I don’t think that’s the case.” He said, “I’m worried about how to finish my career and how I can repay (for the love of the fans). (For now) I’ll try to move forward by showing that I won’t give up until the end like I’ve always done.”
Reflecting the trend of the MZ generation, this All-Star game will compete against each other by forming teams of male M-Stars and Z-Stars born before and after 1995, and female M-Stars and Z-Stars born before and after 1996.
For Shin Young-seok, it is already three consecutive seasons and the 11th All-Star in his career. In the V-League men’s division, Yeo Oh-hyun (45, Hyundai Capital) in the 13th, Lee Seon-gyu (42, retired) in the 12th, and Han Seon-seon (38, Korean Air) tied for 4th with Moon Seong-min (37, Hyundai Capital). This season, he is also showing top-notch activity as a middle blocker, including No. 1 in blocking and No. 1 in fast attack.
On this day, Shin Young-seok, the M-star representative, and Kim Min-jae (20, Korean Air), who appeared as the Z-star face, played a tense battle of nerves and drew laughter. In the previous mini-game, when Shin Young-seok first provoked him by saying, “I will step on (Z-CEO juniors)”, Kim Min-jae also said, “I will step on it, but it is not easy. 스포츠토토
Even after the pre-all-star game, the nervous war mixed with laughter continued. Kim Min-jae missed the first place with the most votes in the men’s division with a difference of about 500 votes. In response, Kim Min-jae joked, “It’s unfortunate, but I still have a lot of days left to play, so (Shin) Young-seok will yield to his older brother.”
In response to the question, “Would your appearance have a positive effect on being selected as an All-Star for three consecutive years?” Shin Young-seok said, “I would have recognized it if the second place was Lim Seong-jin, but (Kim) Min-jae came in second place, so people who like volleyball have good skills. It seems that he was chosen as a ,” he replied, making it a sea of laughter.
They also did not forget to say good things to each other. Shin Young-seok said, “All-Star is not what I want to be. It is a position that volleyball fans recognize when I show a good figure in my position. I also slowly climbed up like stepping on the stairs.” I don’t think it was when I was there. I think it will come up after I retire in about three years.”
Kim Min-jae also said, “As everyone acknowledges and agrees, he is the best among middle blockers, so I think he has become an all-star. I also watch a lot of (Shin) Young-seok hyung’s videos. There are a lot of things to learn from watching, and I’m looking forward to it because I think I’ll stick to it tomorrow.”
