Jeong Ji-seok (Korean Air) will wear the Taeguk mark for the first time in a year.
The Korea Volleyball Association (KVA) on Wednesday finalized the 17-man roster for the 2023 Korean men’s national team. “These players will participate in various international competitions in 2023, including the Hangzhou Asian Games and the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Challenger Cup,” the organization said.안전놀이터
In May last year, Jeong was handed a one-year suspension from the Korean Volleyball Association (KVA) for strengthening training for representative players. In September 2021, Jeong settled all legal issues with his ex-girlfriend after she filed a complaint against him for dating violence and illegal filming, and in October last year, he submitted an agreement and a letter of withdrawal of the complaint to the police, which resulted in a suspension of prosecution.
In response, the Korean Volleyball Organization (KOVO), which governs professional volleyball, held a punishment committee and fined Jeong Ji-seok 5 million won, while Korean Air separately imposed its own punishment of suspending him for the remainder of the second round of the regular season. The Korean Volleyball Association’s “one-year suspension for strengthening training for representative players” is also over, meaning Jeong will be able to compete in international competitions. She is expected to compete in the Hangzhou Asian Games in September.
Most of the players who were selected for the reinforcement program have been training at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village since the first of this month. Jeong Ji-seok, who competed in the Asian Club Championship with his Korean Air teammates, will move in on the 24th.
Setters Hwang Taek-ui (Armed Forces Athletic Corps) and Kim Myung-kwan (Hyundai Capital), liberos Park Kyung-min (Hyundai Capital) and Oh Jae-sung (Woori Card) were selected for the national team.
Six outside hitters, including recently enlisted Na Kyung-bok (KB Insurance), Hwang Kyung-min (KB Insurance), Lim Sung-jin (KEPCO), Kim Ji-han (Woori Card), Jeong Jung-yong (Korean Air) and Jeong Ji-seok (Korean Air), and two outside hitters, Heo Soo-bong (Hyundai Capital) and Lim Dong-hyuk (Korean Air), will lead the Korean Men’s Volleyball Team’s wing attack.
Middle blockers Kim Gyu-min, Kim Min-jae (Korean Air), Park Joon-hyuk (Woori Card), Lee Sang-hyun (Woori Card) and Kim Jun-woo (Samsung Fire) will also wear the Taeguk mark.
