“Just endure the training center.”

Park Ji-won’s playing time this season has decreased slightly, averaging only 10 minutes and 6 seconds in 34 games. He compiled 1.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists. His height and physique, which were good for his position, and his energy level, which spared no effort in defense, remained the same, but his opportunity to play decreased due to his poor shooting feel. As he progressed toward the second half of the season, he got better at shooting and hitting one or two 3-pointers was a positive aspect.
From Park Ji-won’s point of view, this season left a lot of regret both personally and as a team. KT finished the season in 8th place (21-33) and failed to advance to the playoffs. Currently, the KT team is on vacation. For Park Ji-won, who is scheduled to enlist on May 15, this vacation is bound to be special.
When asked how he was doing, Park Ji-won said, “First, I tried to spend a lot of time with his family. He replied, “I was busy taking out my luggage and taking out my house in Suwon.”
Regarding this season, “As a result, I am very sorry, but it was a season in which I learned a lot. I thought I should go to Sangmu to learn more and make up for my weaknesses. The same goes for weight training and shooting. I want to come back with an overall upgrade.”
Since he is scheduled to enlist on May 15, he has about a month left to spend in society. Park Ji-won said, “I think I will be enlisting tomorrow (laughs). In fact, taking a break doesn’t feel like taking a break,” he said, expressing his feelings ahead of enlistment.
Heo Hoon, a senior from Yonsei University and a senior from KT, is waiting for the managing director. He asked Heo Hoon if he had any advice.
Park Ji-won said, “We ate together a while ago. I don’t have to worry too much, but they told me to hold on well at the training center. I think I got more scared after hearing the story of the training center (laughs), but since everyone else is doing it, I plan to work hard.”
The driving force that made Park Ji-won move more this season is the fans. Park Ji-won said, “I think I was very sad and sluggish this season, but I was able to work out hard thanks to the silent support from the side and not leaving. In the future, even if I go to the army (laughs), if you don’t leave and send me your support, I will come back better.”
