I want to find the play I used to be confident in, and in the end, since I am a pro, I have to do well.”
Lim Dong-seop, who moved from Seoul Samsung to Changwon LG, went to his first training session on the 13th at Changwon Gymnasium Auxiliary Stadium. In the morning of this day, he did weight training and light shooting drills.
Lim Dong-seop, who came down to Changwon on the 12th and participated in the training, said, “It is awkward. There were a lot of players I knew among (LG’s) existing players, so I wasn’t unfamiliar with them.” There was nothing,” he said in his first training impression.
In LG, there are many players who have a deep relationship with Lim Dong-seop. Lee Kwan-hee and Kim Joon-il worked together at Samsung, and Jeong Hee-jae was a classmate at Hongik University High School. Coach Kim Dong-woo said that he shared a room with Lim Dong-seop when he was a player at Samsung.
Lim Dong-seop said, “I play on the same team (Lee Kwan-hee, Kim Jun-il), come out of the same school (Jeong Hee-jae), or are military classmates (Han Sang-hyuk) or successors (Lee Jae-do, Seo Min-soo). He was so welcoming to everyone. Kim Joon-il even asked me to sleep at his house.” I was so distracted that I wondered if I had ever received a phone call like that in my life. welcomed everything The director welcomed me yesterday (12th), and the director waited for me even though I came late. Seeing that, he welcomed me to the point where I thought he traded because he needed me.”
It wouldn’t have been easy to say goodbye to those who spent 10 years at Samsung.
Lim Dong-seop said, “It’s been a long time. When I first heard (the news of the trade), I was going to accept it calmly, but since it was my first time (the trade), I felt strange when I said hello to my existing colleagues, coaches, coaches, and secretariat staff.” I couldn’t even say hello to everyone in (STC). I did a lot of rehabilitation, so I said hello to the people who were in charge of rehabilitation at STC, but I always had a lot of heart to take care of me, cherish me, and want me to do well. said 안전놀이터
The trade of Lim Dong-seop was based on the judgment that after the appointment of coach Eun Hee-seok, he did not live up to expectations and that he would not be able to meet those expectations in the future. You have to show your value in the newly changed LG.
Lim Dong-seop said, “The director and coach also spoke. (At LG) I don’t run for 30 minutes like I used to. I came here because I needed to do my best without feeling pressured, and to make one outside shot. What I was good at, as the coach said in an interview, not 3-4 shots in every game, but 1-2 shots when it’s important (just put in), I’m also a senior on the team, but when the team is lagging, when it’s important, just give one shot. “LG is basically good at defense, and there is a good foreign player named Mare. It is a team with good rebounding, so I will work hard on defense and rebounding, and will confidently throw (shoot) even if the opportunity arises.”
Some say that Lim Dong-seop fits better with LG than with Samsung. It is more advantageous for Lim Dong-seop to receive a shooting opportunity derived from Asem Marey rather than to shoot in a motion offense that requires a lot of movement. LG coach Jo Sang-hyun also believes that regardless of whether the shot is successful or not, it is worthwhile to throw coolly and at least lead the opponent’s defense.
Lim Dong-seop said, “Rather than thinking like that, I’m going to put down the mind (burden) of trying to do well at Samsung before that, and relax my mind, but just like the director said, I’ll try to do it with confidence and without any burden.” If you are more professional, you should adapt to that team. As a result, I made that decision because I was not satisfied with it, so I want to quickly adapt well here and play a role in making this good atmosphere even better.”
This season is over halfway through. LG is in second place with 17 wins and 12 losses. However, they are competing fiercely for second place with Ulsan Hyundai Mobis and Seoul SK, and are only two games behind Jeonju KCC and Goyang Carrot, who are tied for fifth place.
Lim Dong-seop said, “I want to show that LG made the trade was a good choice. During the rest of the season, I want to show the changed play,” he said.
