Kim Jun-woo, who was nominated in the 3rd place in the first round, leads the team in terms of number of appearances (23 games) and records among rookies. He scored 127 points (53.24% attack success rate), ranking 8th in blocking and 9th in fast break. He also has an attack share of 5.95% within the team, and has established himself as a reliable central striker with a particularly respectable fast-attack success rate (54%).
Lee Hyeon-seung, who joined as the 2nd pick in the 1st round, was also recognized for his potential. He stayed in the warm-up zone at the beginning of the season, but from the 3rd round he has been playing the role of a commander in earnest. Head coach Choi Tae-woong, a former famous setter, gave the ball a passing grade for his courageous play. He played 14 games this season and ranked 5th in the set category, and he is a rookie with more expectations in the future.
Overall, the 1st ranked Shin Shin showed off his presence by filling the void of injured players in the team at the beginning of the season. In particular, his fighting spirit is impressive. Although the opportunity to play has decreased due to the return of the main players, the potential for development is sufficient.
