“I received a lot of help, I hope you keep in touch” Oh Jae-hyun to Choi Jun-yong, his ‘best friend’ who left SK
Oh Jae-hyeon (24, 186.4cm) expressed affection for his best friend Choi Jun-yong.
On the 24th, the 2023 KUSF College Basketball U-League Hanyang University and Kyunghee University faced off at Hanyang University Olympic Gymnasium. A familiar face sat on one side of the crowd. It was Oh Jae-hyun from Seoul SK, a graduate of Hanyang University. He visited the gym with his teammate Choi Won-hyeok to cheer on the juniors from his alma mater.토토사이트
Oh Jae-hyun said, “I wish individual fans would come at least once. And he was also at his alma mater, so he came to visit. Since I came here, I have a lot of memories from the past. I also played basketball more earnestly than anyone else, so it brings back a lot of memories. It’s fun to watch the juniors play,” he said.
Last season, Oh Jae-hyun showed a more advanced play. He played in all 54 regular league games, averaging 20 minutes and 6 seconds, recording 6.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists. His excellent defense and Altoran-like out-of-field shots helped SK advance to the championship match. However, SK knelt down at the end of a bloody battle that went from the championship game to Anyang KGC and the 7th overtime game.
Oh Jae-hyun said, “At that time, it seemed that the regret would last for a long time. He thought a lot about whether there would ever be a more regrettable moment in his basketball life. However, he received more support and encouragement than expected, so the aftereffects did not last long. He laughed, saying, “I will work hard next season so that I can get revenge.”
After the season, SK had a change in the squad. Choi Jun-yong (KCC) and Choi Seong-won (KGC) left the team, and Oh Se-geun joined instead. In particular, Choi Seong-won, who was in charge of one axis of the front line, transferred, so the new season Oh Jae-hyun and Choi Won-hyuk’s shoulders became more heavy.
“(Choi) Seongwon seems to have a big vacancy for his older brother. However, since I and (Choi) Won-hyeok won the championship when my two older brothers were together, there shouldn’t be any big problems. The two have many similarities, but they definitely have different strengths, so I think if they create a synergistic effect, Sungwon will be able to fill the void left by him.” Oh Jae-hyun’s words.
He also expressed great regret at the transfer of Choi Jun-yong, who was always close to Oh Jae-hyun. After the news of his transfer to KCC was announced, Choi Jun-yong sent greetings by tagging Jamil Warney, Oh Jae-hyeon, Ahn Young-jun, and Choi Seong-won on his social media.
Oh Jae-hyun said, “(Choi) Jun-yong never thought of meeting his brother as an enemy. I will play for another team in the future, but as everyone knows, isn’t he the best player in Korea? I will be very nervous, but if I ever meet him on the court, I will take on the attitude of learning.”
He continued, “Jun-yong helped his brother so much when he was having a hard time at SK. He was the person who made it possible for me to play basketball mentally and stably. I want to say thank you for taking care of me more than anyone else and giving me good advice. He will ask a lot if there is anything he does not know in the future, so I hope you will contact him often.”
