Technical support issues
Lee Woo-jin (3rd year at Gyeongbuk Physical Education High School), who is considered the future of Korean volleyball, is aiming to advance to the European stage.
According to the volleyball world, Lee Woo-jin decided to play in Europe without submitting an application to participate in the Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) 2024-24 men's rookie player draft, which ends on the 13th.
Lee Woo-jin led Korea to third place with impressive performances at the 2023 FIVB International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) Under-19 World Championships held in Argentina last August.
This is the first time Korea has placed in the top three at this competition 30 years since the 1993 Istanbul Games, where it won a bronze medal. At that time, Korea's players including Taewoong Choi (current manager of Hyundai Capital), Jinwook Seok (former manager of OK Financial Group), and Byungcheol Jang (former manager of Korea Electric Power Corporation) won medals.
Lee Woo-jin played as the team's ace, scoring double-digit scores in every game, and was also selected as the best outside hitter of the tournament.
Famous foreign agents who watched Lee Woo-jin's play explored the possibility of advancing to Europe, and the player also expressed his desire to learn on a new stage.
The club that is most active in recruiting Lee Woo-jin is from the first division of a high-quality league in Europe and has top-level players.
From the V-League, Kim Yeon-kyung (Heungkuk Life Insurance) and Moon Seong-min (Hyundai Capital) have played in Turkmenistan and Germany.
If Lee Woo-jin's transfer goes through, he will become the first player to advance to the European stage without going through the V-League after graduating from high school.
