Coach Sang-hyun Cha is pushing Han Su-ji to the best 7 this season. He even goes so far as to promote himself.
Han Suji’s best 7 is not a dream. He added 3 blockings in this game, and maintained 1st place in blocking per set (0.81). The best 7 middle blocker was Yang Hyo-jin (Hyundai Construction), the best in Korea, and attention is focusing on whether Han Su-ji will break the stronghold.

Suji Han said, “It was difficult overall in the beginning. He was in the top three early in the season, and he wasn’t bad in practice games. When I opened the lid, it was different. It was difficult to accept defeat after several seasons of good results. I got up as I won every game,” he said. “I knock on the calculator at the end of every game. It’s getting thinner now. Empty your mind and try to do your best. Opportunities may come,” he said.
