‘Second-Generation Volleyball Player’ Kim Se-bin, “I Want to be Like my Mom’s Fast Attack and Dad’s Blocking.”
Kim Cheol-soo and Kim Nam-soon’s second daughter… “I did well thanks to my parents’ harsh words.”
Middle blocker Kim Se-bin (Hanbom High School), who was selected first overall by the Korea Expressway Corporation in the 2023-2024 Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) Women’s Rookie Draft,
is, as is well known, a ‘second-generation volleyball player.’
Korea Power Volleyball Team
His father is Kim Cheol-soo, the general manager of the Korea Power Volleyball Team,
who consistently stayed in front of the Korea Power Net as a middle blocker during his active years,
his mother is Kim Nam-soon, the former coach of the women’s volleyball team, 토토사이트
who played witty plays at Korea-Japan Synthetic and KT&G.
Kim Se-bin met with reporters after the draft held at the Mayfield Hotel in Gangseo-gu, Seoul on the 10th and said,
“I want to emulate my mom’s ability to hit fast breaks, and I want to imitate my dad’s sense of blocking.”
Middle blockers, who were called ‘centers’ in the past, have blocking as their main job,
the ability to outwit opposing blockers in front of the net is important.
Kim Se-bin said, “My parents praised me a lot, but they also said a lot of harsh words.
After hearing that, I would like to say that I am truly grateful that I was selected as the first overall pick.” General
manager Kim Cheol-soo, who watched the draft on the spot, said, “Being the first overall pick is an honor for the family,” and added, “Both my wife and I have a strong desire to win.
“I think I passed it on well as a parent,” he said, happy.
He then gave advice to his daughter, saying, “This is my first time as a professional, and what I have done so far is meaningless.
Being a professional is about skill, so show me how to work hard and do well.”
Korean Women’s Volleyball
Kim Se-bin received attention early on for her potential to lead Korean women’s volleyball in the future.
Kim Se-bin, who was certain to be selected first overall, said, “People around me told me that I would be selected first,
but I didn’t feel it (when I was actually nominated),” and added, “I think the Korea Expressway Corporation won last year and is a great and wonderful team.”
Kim Se-bin, who is currently 187cm tall, may grow taller as her growth plate has not yet closed.
He said, “I wish I could grow up to about 190cm.”
The road construction company has Bae Yu-na, the unwavering starting middle blocker.
For the time being, we need to focus on growth by closely following Bae Yuna’s movements.
Kim Se-bin chose Bae Yu-na as her example and said, “I want to learn everything from blocking to every play.
I want to work hard so I can play in the game.”
Kim Se-bin says his strength is his quick attack in fast breaks.
He is also a player with good receiving skills, so if he is not a middle blocker,
he picks outside hitter as the position he wants to play.
When Kim Se-bin was asked, ‘Do you have a desire for the Rookie of the Year Award?’,
he answered firmly, “Yes,” without hesitating for a second.
He did not hide his confidence as the No. 1 overall pick who dominated the high school stage and is now a professional player for the first time.
