Technical support issues
It is expected that it will take a considerable amount of time for IBK Industrial Bank of Korea Altos Kim Hee-jin to return to the court.
IBK Industrial Bank of Korea won the set score of 1-3 (25-19, 19-25, 22-25, 20-25) in the match against GS Caltex KIXX in the second round of the 'Dodram 2023-2024 V-League' held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 29th. ended their two-game winning streak.
Abercrombie (25 points) and Choi Jeong-min (18 points) combined for 43 points, but could not prevent the team from losing. Choi Jeong-min played well, scoring 8 points in the first set, but it was disappointing that he lost strength in the subsequent sets. Hwang Min-kyung only scored 9 points. Kim Hee-jin did not appear on the court in the game that day.
Kim Hee-jin, the star of IBK Industrial Bank of Korea, underwent surgery last season due to a knee injury. Due to the aftermath of his surgery, he played his first game this season against Heungkuk Life Insurance on the 4th, but only appeared in 3 games and scored 3 goals. He has not been seen on the court at all recently.
Coach Kim Ho-cheol said in an interview before the game, “We originally planned to put Kim Hee-jin in the second round after the first round. His rehabilitation has not yet been completely completed, so he is back in rehabilitation. He plans to do rehabilitation training until this week and come to the gym little by little starting from the 3rd round to touch the ball and start training. “I think we will be able to see him playing on the court from the middle of the third round,” he explained about Kim Hee-jin’s physical condition.
Coach Kim Ho-cheol said, “I think it will be the hardest for me,” and added, “All volleyball players want to play on the court. However, rehabilitation is something you have to overcome with a very strong mindset. Kim Hee-jin is also working hard and doing well,” he said, encouraging Kim Hee-jin.
Kim Hee-jin is unable to participate in the game, but is accompanying the team and watching the game from the warm-up zone. Coach Kim Ho-cheol said, “I think he is the most frustrated,” and added, “(Kim Hee-jin) says she will continue to play. However, if he rashly participates in a game and gets injured again, he will have to go through rehabilitation again. “I think for the sake of the player’s life, he must return after a clear recovery,” he said, emphasizing that a complete recovery is the most important.
Director Kim Ho-cheol said, “As a director, I hope Kim Hee-jin comes back as soon as possible. But it's not something I can do as I please. Fans may be frustrated, but if they wait just a little longer, a healthy (Kim) Hee-jin will return. “I hope you support him,” he urged his fans.
