Hanbi Lee, who received the support of KBSN commentator Park Mi-hee, who was her first professional teacher, smiled brightly.
Pepper Savings Bank Lee Han-bi met with commentator Park Mi-hee for advice prior to the 5th round match between안전놀이터 GS Caltex and Pepper Savings Bank in the women’s division of the ‘Dodram 2022-2023 V-League’ held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 5th, and smiled happily.
Commentator Park Mi-hee is the coach who nominated Lee Han-bi, who is currently attending Wongok High School, as the first pick in the ‘2015-16 KOVO Female Rookie Draft’ when he was the head coach of Heungkuk Life Insurance in 2015. Lee Han-bi was a player who won the 2015 Taebaek Mountain Middle and High Volleyball Championship with her classmate and best friend Kang So-hui when she was in Wongok High School, two years after her team was founded. Her bold attacks based on her natural strength have already been evaluated as high school level players.
But her professional wall was high. She said that Heungkuk Life Insurance had foreign players, Lee Jae-young, and even Kim Yeon-kyung, so she could not play many games. It was to the point of participating occasionally when there was a spot available due to the injury of a foreign player or the selection of a domestic player to the national team.
Then, in 2021, he got a new opportunity by moving the team to the special nomination for the founding of Pepper Savings Bank. Lee Han-bi, who received full support from manager Kim Hyung-sil, was the first captain and starting pitcher of Pepper Savings Bank, and was even selected for the first time in the women’s volleyball team in July of last year.
After the team transfer, Lee Han-bi continued to play, and Lee Han-bi’s skills improved. Although she did not have excellent momentum, she became an ace leading the team by acquiring the best power in the V-League Women’s Division and the ability to hit low balls. Now, Lee Han-bi adjusts her attacking steps to a quick toss and hits the ball confidently without hesitation even in the face of high blocking.Commentator Park Mi-hee was also delighted with her growth. Before the match, she went down to the court and talked with Lee Han-bi for a long time and even shouted fighting with her fists clenched. She sincerely congratulated her pupil on his growth, even though he did not give many opportunities to participate in Heungkuk Life Insurance. Lee Han-bi was also happy with the support of her old teacher.
