‘All-around beauty’ Heo Soo-bong, the reason why Hyundai Capital is strong
Hyundai Capital, which has been in the lower ranks for the past two seasons, is challenging the championship this season with the ‘triangle formation’ of Oreol, Jeon Kwang-in, and Heo Soo-bong showing off their power. On this day, Heo Soo-bong’s performance was more noticeable.
Heo Soo-bong scored 17 points, the most among both teams, including two blocks. He went back and forth between the front and rear and helped his teammates score goals with his tenacious defense. Jeon Kwang-in and Oreoll also contributed with 11 points and 10 points, respectively.
Heo Su-bong, who has been in his 7th year of debut, is growing into an ace of Hyundai Capital. In particular, he beat foreign players in the 5th round and ranked first with an attack success rate of 57.96%, and was selected as the best player (MVP) of the round for the first time since his debut.
Heo Soo-bong runs around the court busier than anyone else this season. He originally played as an apogee spiker, but was sometimes put in as a middle blocker under the direction of coach Choi Tae-woong. This is the secret to Hyundai Capital’s ability to try various tactics.
As the regular season nears its end, Hyundai Capital has also become more important in managing their physical strength. It means that the responsibility of the 25-year-old ‘young blood’ Heo Soo-bong has become that much heavier. Attention is focusing on whether Heo Soo-bong, who has emerged as a star of Hyundai Capital beyond being a young rookie, will lift the championship trophy.
