A big star in Korean basketball has fallen. Basketball star Kim Young-hee, who was fighting ‘giant disease’, passed away on the 31st of last month due to deteriorating health.
Kim Young-hee, a 200 cm tall center from Sungui Girls’ High School, is a legend in the basketball world who participated in the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi and the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics as a national team member and received Olympic silver medals, as well as the White Horse and Wild Tiger medals. 안전놀이터
During his active career, the ‘cosmetics industry rivalry’ between Kim Yeong-hee’s Korean cosmetics and Park Chan-suk’s Pacific Chemicals drew great popularity from fans, along with men’s basketball matches between Samsung Electronics led by Kim Hyun-joon and Hyundai Electronics led by Lee Chung-hee. He was literally a first-generation star player who carried the popularity of the great basketball party.
However, her excessively large height gave her a hard time. Her health deteriorated due to acromegaly symptoms, and she suffered a long illness with complications such as brain tumor, hypoglycemia and thyroid disease, and intestinal obstruction. In the past, there are cases where basketball stars such as Seo Jang-hoon and Huh Je paid for her hospital bills.
Her funeral is scheduled for 8:30 am on the 4th at Daniel Funeral Home in Bucheon. Her mortuary was not separately prepared.
