Byeon So-jeong (22, 180cm) is working in various ways for the new season.
Byeon So-jeong, who wore the uniform of Incheon Shinhan Bank as the 3rd pick in the first round at the 2021-2022 WKBL new player selection event, played 20 games last season, his second year. He was primarily used as a sixth man, averaging 3.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 11 minutes and 12 seconds. Shinhan Bank, which went through the stage of establishing organizational capabilities last season when there were many transfers, is working to solidify its organizational capabilities for the new season. The important key to this is Byeon So-jeong.
Byun So-jeong, whom we met on the 11th, said, “The season is getting closer, so I’m just training. Rest time is decreasing (laughter). He must overcome. (It looks like you’ve lost a lot of weight, right?) Even if you eat, you won’t gain weight. (Lee Hwi-geol) revealed his current situation, saying, “Coach is testing my diet.”
Byeon So-jeong, who does not gain weight easily, lost a lot of weight through his off-season training. To prevent this, coach Lee Hwi-geol frequently checks the diet. Byeon So-jeong explains that when he feels like it’s not enough, she nags him and sometimes gives it to him herself. At lunchtime on the 11th, when Byeon So-jeong visited a restaurant, Coach Lee Hwi-geol was with her and explained carbohydrates and proteins, adding side dishes to Byeon So-jeong’s plate.
Byeon So-jeong said, “Sometimes I show the menu and sometimes people come to see it in person. If there is less, they will scoop up the food and give it to you (laughter). “I really have to eat it all,” she said with a laugh.
When asked if there were any difficulties other than weight loss, Byeon So-jeong said, “I think I understand the tactical aspects that the manager, coaches, and sisters talk about more than before. However, when a new tactic comes out, it can be a bit slow to understand. These days, I’m레고토토 throwing a lot of mid-range shots. “I am practicing 3-point shooting during personal training, but the coach is waiting for the time I can make.”
The new season is Byun So-jung’s third season as a professional. Byun So-jeong’s goal last season was to increase his playing time compared to his debut season. His debut season averaged 8 minutes and 22 seconds in 11 games. He can be considered to have achieved his goal as he played 9 more games than that.
Byeon So-jeong said, “There were injuries and some sisters were missing, so I played a lot in the offseason. Opportunities do not come easily. As he gets into the season, he tries to be more proactive with the time he is given. The coach also says that when he gets on the court, he has to liven up the atmosphere. “I will do my best to make that happen,” he said.
