 In particular, the overwhelming performance of 13 to 1 in blocking along with various attack routes stood out.

Shin Young-seok, who was selected as the Distinguished Player on this day, met with reporters after the game and said, “I was worried a lot about the recent losing streak because of painful memories from last season. 

I focused more because I had to catch up with the leaders due to the results of today’s game. 

Thankfully, we were able to escape the losing streak thanks to the luck of the opposing main players being replaced in the middle,” he said, expressing his feelings about the victory.

Shin Young-seok surpassed 4,000 points in his personal career on this day, becoming the first men’s middle blocker to surpass 4,000 points.

Shin Young-seok said, “I achieved a new middle blocker scoring record, and now that I feel like he is close to retirement, I want to set as many records as possible.

I want to score 5000 points, so I will try to get there. “I’m not far from reaching 1,200 blocks (currently at 1,191 blocks)

but I will try to achieve a higher number than Yang Hyo-jin in the women’s division, who set the first 1,500 blocks record,” he said with a smile.

Shin Young-seok is wearing uniform number ‘23’ in the 2023-24 season. 

Shin Young-seok, who changes his uniform number to the number of the year every year

said he wants to wear his uniform number up to ’30’. In other words, he wanted to continue his active duty until 2030.

Shin Young-seok said, “My goal is to wear uniform number 30 (laughter). 

The director tells me to take good care of my body, so he tells me to do it up to 45 times.

Don’t we hear about the ‘aging curve’ every year? Those words seem to stimulate me more and keep me from getting tired. 

I have to continue to prove my worth, so I want to set more records in the future,” he said emphatically.
