 Kim Kun-woo (33, 194 cm) leaves the court he has been fond of. Kim Kun-woo, who calmly conveyed his thoughts on retirement, mentioned Kim Seon-hyung, saying, “I want you to deal with this story as well.”

Seoul SK officially announced the retirement of Kim Kun-woo through a press release on the 12th. Kim Kun-woo recently visited the club and announced his intention to retire, and SK accepted it. SK is coordinating the schedule related to Kim Kun-woo’s retirement event.

Kim Kun-woo, a graduate of Gwangshin Jeongsan High School and Dongguk University, joined SK with the 19th pick in the 2012 rookie draft. Choi Bu-gyeong, who was nominated in second place, is the motivation for joining SK. Kim Gun-woo, who has decent shooting ability, recorded an average of 6 minutes and 47 seconds in 182 games in the first team, 1.8 points, and a 3-point success rate of 38.5%. “It’s sad. He looks back on his career and has mixed emotions.” It was the feeling of retirement expressed by Kim Kun-woo.

SK achieved its first combined championship last season, but there was no place for Kim Geon-woo because the forward power was solid. Kim Kun-woo did not play a game last season, and he could not step on the court this season either. He played in only two D-League games, averaging 7 points, 1 3-pointer, 6.5 rebounds and 1 assist in 30 minutes and 10 seconds.

Kim Kun-woo said, “Since I didn’t get a chance last season or this season, I thought, ‘Is my limit this far?’. He worked hard, but this made him decide to retire. He thought that after this season, he would become a free agent, but since he had nothing to show, his chances of signing with another team would decrease.”

Although he did not build a brilliant career, Kim Gun-woo left his name as a member whenever SK won a championship after joining. SK achieved its first regular league championship in the 2012-2013 season when Kim Kun-woo was a rookie, and won the championship match in 18 seasons in the 2017-2018 season. It was the season when Kim Kun-woo replaced military service as a social worker and returned. Last season, they achieved a combined championship.

Kim Geon-woo said, “It has a special meaning to have won the championship game twice and to have won the championship ring. Even if he didn’t play a lot, he was proud of being a little helpful as a member of the team.”

In addition, Kim Gun-woo, who is preparing to become a leader, said, “I was not an A-class player. Even when he was really good, he only played a little bit as a sixth man, but fans are contacting him a lot. Thank you so much for your support and interest. I will continue to live with pride as a member of the SK team. I hope you will watch over me well,” he said to the fans.메이저사이트

Just as the interview was about to end, Kim Kun-woo mentioned Kim Sun-hyung, saying, “I hope that (Kim) Sun-hyung writes about him too.” Kim Gun-woo said, “Sun-hyung was especially grateful to his brother. He treated me like a younger brother than anyone else and gave me a lot of advice, even when things went well and when things went wrong like last season or this season. He also helped a lot when exercising. I wanted to talk about this when I entered the interview room as a Distinguished Player… . I would like to take this opportunity to say that I am really grateful to his older brother.”

Meanwhile, according to KBL regulations, salaries are paid to players who retire during the season until the contract period expires. Kim Kun-woo signed a contract for a total of 72 million won in remuneration ahead of this season, and the contract period with SK is until May 31 next year.
