“Senior Soyoung told me, ‘You are my rookie king.’”
KGC Ginseng Corporation Park Eun-ji (19) has been evaluated as a promising setter since her days at Ilshin Girls’ Middle School and Ilshin Girls’ High School. Seeing him with a bold personality along with a stable toss, Ko Hee-jin, director of KGC Ginseng Corporation, put Park Eun-ji in as the starting setter for the 5th set against IBK Industrial Bank of Korea before the opening. 크크크벳
At the beginning of the season, he showed a bouncy performance with Choi Hyo-seo, but after that, the ups and downs were severe. After that, the number of game-set appearances gradually began to decrease, and in the second half of the season, it was a great reflection of the one-point server.
Park Eun-ji, who played 26 games and 67 sets this season and scored 11 points and an average of 1.851 per set, was nominated for the rookie of the year along with her comrade Choi Hyo-seo. However, he had to hand over the rookie of the year to Choi Hyo-seo, who won 17 votes, while only getting 8 out of 31 votes from the reporters.
Park Eun-ji, whom we met at the KGC Ginseng Corporation practice gym in Daejeon on the 1st, said, “It’s okay now. It was unfortunate, but I was lacking. So-Young unnie said to me, ‘You are my Rookie of the Year’” she laughed. “His debut season was a disappointment itself. I had to consistently show a better image like in the beginning, but it faltered from the middle. It’s too bad. I don’t think I was able to help the team.”
