‘From Morning Star to Pillar’ Road construction setter Lee Yun-jeong “I feel strongly growing”

Lee Yoon-jung (26, Korea Expressway Corporation), who emerged as the best rising star in women’s professional volleyball by becoming the rookie king late last season. In this season, she has established herself as an indispensable pillar of the team beyond simply receiving attention.

Lee Yoon-jung led her team Korea Expressway Corporation’s set score 3-1 victory with various and stable toss in the away match against Hyundai E&C in the 5th round of the professional volleyball Dodram 2022-23 V League Women’s Division held at Suwon Gymnasium on the 14th.

Lee Yoon-jung is the main striker, Cat Bell. Park Jung-ah, as well as middle blockers Bae Yoo-na and Jung Dae-young, were properly utilized. Although she was a setter, she contributed to the victory in many ways, including one block and scoring two points.

In fact, the setter gets a lot of swearing when he loses a game, but he doesn’t shine when he wins. So it is a more difficult and lonely place. On this day, Yoon-Jeong Lee continued to hear criticism from coach Jong-Min Kim throughout the game. There were endless comments about her choice of attack direction and toss pitches. Even when she was ahead of the game, she briefly put on a sullen expression when her coach’s reprimand continued.

In an interview after the game, manager Kim Jong-min said, “In the scoring opportunity, the setter’s toss selection went the opposite way, and it was difficult to solve the first set.”

Her party, Lee Yoon-jung, knows very well. The reason why director Kim Jong-min scolded himself. That’s because he’s a big and important part of his current team.

Lee Yoon-jung is digesting 112 sets, the most among the main setters of each team this season. It is no exaggeration to say that there is a backup setter Ahn Ye-rim, but Lee Yoon-jung remains the setter alone with almost no replacements. He even competes for first or second place in the number of toss. He is competing for a spot in the top class of the league in his second season after entering the professional league in earnest.

Lee Yoon-jung is familiar with director Kim Jong-min’s reprimand. He confided in his heart, saying, “The director doesn’t usually give compliments very well,” and “It is said that everything is the setter’s responsibility, but honestly there are times when I feel sad.”

At the same time, he expressed his faith in coach Kim Jong-min, saying, “After the game, the coach later released me saying, ‘My heart is not like that’” and “I feel strongly growing up.”

The point Lee Yoon-jung hears the most from manager Kim Jong-min is that he only plays too stable. So, whenever he practices, he tries to make various attempts such as quick attacks. On this day, a quick attack using Gyeonggi-do’s Bae Yu-na and Jeong Dae-young shone. The more you play, the more you can see your progress.

It is natural that it is physically difficult to digest the season full-time. That’s why I usually try to get a good night’s sleep when I rest while doing weight training.

Lee Yoon-jung said, “I don’t have any special health food for physical strength, but I always eat one or two Gongjindan a day.” 스포츠토토

Following the 4th round on this day, in the 5th round, the possibility of the spring volleyball of the Korea Expressway Corporation increased that much as it caught the lead Hyundai E&C. Although the ranking battle is not over yet, Lee Yoon-jung is full of confidence.

Lee Yoon-jung emphasized, “I always think that we will win not only in Hyundai E&C, but also in any team we meet.”
