“If I don’t shake, the team won’t shake either.”
Moon Jeong-won (31) of the Korea Expressway Corporation left the worst record since he was promoted to the starting rank last season. He played 32 games (114 sets) and scored 91 points, an attack success rate of 29.69%, and a receiving efficiency of 38.73%.
It was the first time that Moon Jeong-won stayed in double digits in one season after 4 points in the 2013-14 season, and it was the first time that the receiving efficiency was in the 30% range. Since the 2014-15 season, when Moon Jung-won rose to the starting rank, he has consistently recorded a receiving efficiency of over 42%. In the 2017-18, 2018-19, and 2019-20 seasons, he showed high efficiency of 48%, 52%, and 42%, respectively, while attempting to receive a four-digit number. It was last season that Moon Jeong-won was left with regret.
Goodbye to the sluggishness of last season. Moon Jeong-won is adding strength as the main axis of road construction this season. He has played 24 games (91 sets) this season and is recording 126 points, an attack success rate of 36.23%, and a receiving efficiency of 55.53%. He is recording an attack success rate of 30% for the first time since the 2019-20 season (36.96%), and the efficiency is also the highest since the 2019-20 season (25%). 먹튀검증
In fact, Moon Jeong-won is a player whose strengths are serving and receiving rather than attacking. The road construction has been running a two-person receiving system for the past few seasons, and the reason it can continue to endure is thanks to the existence of Myung-ok Myung-ok and Jung-won Moon. This season, Moon Jung-won has a receiving efficiency of 55.53%, which is the best record since his debut. He has also received 742 receptions so far, and if the current trend continues, he is likely to record more than 1000 reception attempts for the fourth time in his career. It is an indispensable presence in road construction.
Moon Jeong-won, whom I recently met, said, “There is something the director always said. In fact, I thought I was working hard and doing my best last year, but I thought that I hadn’t worked harder than now.”
Currently, the number one receiving player is Im Myung-ok, a teammate who is called the ‘best libero’ with 62% efficiency. Moon Jeong-won said, “I don’t have any greed for first place. Our team has a two-man receiving system, so if I don’t shake, the team won’t shake. If it vibrates even a little, the setter also vibrates. Rather than thinking like that, I am trying to play a stable game.”
Recently, the Korea Expressway Corporation has maintained its 3rd place with a 2-game winning streak. In particular, concentration improved after the 20-point range. Also, unlike the previous Katarina Jovic (registered name Katarina), the joining of Catherine Bell (registered name Catbell), who knows how to use various attacks such as rearguard attacks, is a great force for the rebound of the road construction.
Moon Jeong-won said, “Since I have older sisters, I can concentrate on the court, and the mindset of ‘Let’s do it’ is growing. Games can be won or lost. However, I have a bigger thought that I will win because my performance has improved a lot recently. Wouldn’t it be a little better?” he laughed.
“After joining Catbell, the atmosphere on the court definitely changed. The atmosphere is different when training. She knows Catbell’s knees are bad, but she keeps Catbell open and always cheerful.”
At the end of this season, he will be eligible for a second free agent (FA), but now he only thinks about the team rather than FA.
Moon Jung-won said, “Actually, I don’t know about FA. After playing free agency once, I thought a lot, ‘Did I pay attention back then?’ But right now, we have to pay attention to one game, one game at a time. Only important games remain. If you care about FA, you become rigid. Since I play the role of a housekeeper in the team, it seems that I think more about helping the team than thinking about FA.”
