Middle blocker Park Eun-jin, who is in the same position as head coach Go Hee-jin. What are you learning? He said, “Because we are in the same position, they talk a lot about blocking and timing of fast attacks. Even when exercising, middle blockers exercise more. Even during individual attacks, middle blockers do more, and even after it ends, they practice more blocking and quick attacks. And coach (Lee) Suk-ja also tells me a lot about the timing of the attack and the timing with the setter. I think he was able to get better thanks to the coaches around him.”
There are many outstanding middle blockers in KGC Ginseng Corporation. There are starting players such as veteran Han Song and good conditions Jeong Ho-young.

Park Eun-jin said, “Honestly, it would be a lie if I said it wasn’t hard. The more I did, the more I thought about what I should do, and (Yeom) Hye-sun unnie helped me a lot. That’s why I was able to overcome that period.” He smiled brightly.
