There are two men directed by Kim Seung-gi. The man of the past and the man of the present. In the past, he was Anyang KGC Byun Jun-hyung, and now he is Lee Jung-hyun of Goyang Carrot.
Byun Jun-hyung, who debuted at KGC in the 2018-2019 season, grew step by step under the strict guidance of coach Kim Seung-gi. In order to develop Byun Jun-hyeong into a point guard, coach Kim Seung-gi did not catch the main guard Lee Jae-do (now LG) after winning the 2020-2021 season. Byun Jun-hyung, who received his opportunity and whip, made his name among the league’s top guards.
In addition, this season, which was changed to Kim Sang-sik as manager, Byun Jun-hyeong is recording 14.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 37 games for an average of 29 minutes and 6 seconds. 14.3 is a career high. He is contributing to the team’s 1st place (26 wins, 11 losses) run.
There is Lee Jung-hyun, the current man of director Kim Seung-gi, who is undergoing a similar procedure. From the offseason, coach Kim Seung-gi carried out a project to develop Lee Jung-hyun. He sent Lee Dae-seong, who was the main guard, to Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu, and assigned the role only to Lee Jung-hyun. Lee Jung-hyun, who is only in his second year, recorded an average of 34 minutes, 45 seconds, 14.4 points, 2.7 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.9 steals in 37 games this season. 34 minutes and 45 seconds is a lot of time to be ranked first in the league this season.
Lee Jung-hyun, who showed brilliant performance while receiving whips and carrots from manager Kim Seung-gi until the middle of the season, has been struggling with an average of 6.5 points in the last 6 games.
In the confrontation between Goyang Carrot and Anyang KGC held at the Goyang Gymnasium on the 2nd, Lee Jung-hyun scored only 9 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists in 32 minutes and 24 seconds. He attempted 10 three-pointers, but only one broke the rim. He also committed two errors. It is Lee Jung-hyun who is lost in the process of wandering for a while. 메이저사이트
On the other hand, Byun Jun-hyeong recorded 26 points, 3 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals in 32 minutes and 29 seconds, leading KGC to an 82-65 victory.
Byun Jun-hyung, whom I met after the game, left jokes and advice about Lee Jung-hyun. Byun Jun-hyeong said, “It hurt my heart to see myself (laughs). I frowned. I have nothing to say but cheer up. Although coach Kim Seung-gi gives a lot of whips, there is a part where he takes good care of him from behind. He catches that part well and if he works hard, he can do even better.”
To the question that Lee Jung-hyun might become a rival in the future, the interview room exploded with a sensible answer, “Because he is young, Jung-hyun is better.”
