His name is the same as that of a soccer team defender, but his uniform number is the same as that of a basketball emperor. The main character is Kim Min-jae (20, Korean Air, height 1m95cm), a ‘twenty-year-old monster’ who appeared like a comet on the volleyball board.
Korean Air, the defending champion of men’s professional volleyball, is cruising this season as well. As of the 25th, it is leading alone and looking forward to winning for three consecutive years. This is thanks to the existence of national team members such as Han Seon-su, Jeong Ji-seok, Kwak Seung-seok, and Lim Dong-hyuk, who have been working together for a long time. New blood was added here. It is evaluated that as middle blocker Kim Min-jae, a second-year high school graduate, grew stronger.
Kim Min-jae started all 24 games this season. He is also running at the top of his personal records, such as 3rd in fast break (62.0%) and 8th in blocking (0.533 per set). He makes frequent mistakes due to his lack of experience, but he is calmly accumulating points by using his excellent flying ability. Thanks to that, even at a young age, he confidently beat his seniors and became the starting pitcher. Kim Min-jae, whom I recently met at the Korean Air Gymnasium in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do, said, “I have been involved in various sports such as track and field since elementary school. 바카라 As a result, he seems to have improved his motor nerves and jumping ability naturally.”
In 2021, when he was a junior at Inhabu High School, Minjae Kim boldly chose to go pro instead of going to college. In the end, Korean Air nominated him with the first pick in the second round. He received more attention because he had the same name as soccer team defender Kim Min-jae (Napoli, 1m90cm). They have a good physique like soccer defender Kim Min-jae, and they have one thing in common: their main job is to block the opponent’s attack. Kim Min-jae said, “I often look for highlights or game broadcasts of senior Kim Min-jae of the soccer team. It is an honor to be compared just because he has the same name.”
