After the match, coach Choi Tae-woong said, “In the playoffs and the championship game, the younger players felt less pressure than I thought. Their performance improved. It’s a pity, but I want to say thank you to the players. In the championship game, our team’s players performed better than in the league. I lost. There was a part where I was greedy, but I kept thinking that I was grateful to the players who did this.”
