And this off-season he earned free agency status. This time, Shim Seong-young’s choice was KB. Shim Seong-young said, “He was very good at the club, and I wanted to be at KB too. Above all, he said, KB has the enthusiastic support and infinite love of fans. Thank you so much for that part. So whenever I go to Cheongju, I really like it. I feel comfortable,” he said, revealing his affection for the club and fans.
KB finished in 5th place last season due to injuries sustained by players. It was completely different from the time of the combined championship in the 2021-2022 season. Shim Seong-young also struggled in the early season after surgery and finished the season with an average of 7.2 points. So, “Last season was a disappointing season for both the team and me. It was very difficult mentally, and my self-esteem was hurt. In the upcoming season, I thought a lot about wanting to do well because I really gritted my teeth and put my best effort into it,” he said, looking back at last season.
“It’s an excuse, but last year was the first surgery in my life. After he had the surgery, he thought, ‘It won’t hurt at all, will it?’ But that wasn’t it. My body came up too late,” he said of his sluggishness at the beginning of last season.
As much as he had a disappointing season, his determination was great. Shim Seong-young said, “The sluggish performance of last season definitely motivated me. I think I will really prepare for the upcoming season and do it with that mindset from the off-season. I haven’t joined the team yet, so I don’t know the team atmosphere, but everyone will think so. we will rise again It is a very important season that requires self-esteem recovery. It will be a very important season both for the team and for me personally.”
He continued, “We have to become the best team and restore our honor. To do that, you have to have the best off-season. There are a lot of things I want to do this off-season and a lot of plays I want to try. Last season, I don’t know if it’s because of the surgery, but my shooting probability dropped a lot. So I think I need to practice shooting again. I think I need to practice a lot in one-on-one karate,” he said, along with his off-season plan.
