“I was upset at the 3rd place, but Anyang was my luck”

“You’d probably know by the look on my face when I joined…”

2007 KBL rookie draft. The glory of the first place in the draft, which attracted attention with the advent of the golden generation, went to Kim Tae-sul, selected by SK. The second choice was Lee Dong-jun, who was nominated by Orion (trading the nomination right with E-Land before the draft). Yang Hee-jong was nominated by KT&G at the time in the third place.

It was a very unsatisfactory ranking. Even Yang Hee-jong 먹튀검증recalled the time and laughed, saying, “You’d probably know from the look on my face when I joined, but I didn’t like it.” However, Anyang (the place of connection) was Yang Hui-jong’s destiny, and also luck. He played 15 seasons (excluding Sangmu) only in Anyang without a single transfer. And he will retire after the end of the 2022-2023 season with Anyang and KGC Legend.

It was his surprise retirement announcement.

Yang Hee-jong announced his retirement after the end of the season through the KGC club on February 22nd. He signed a three-year free agent contract after the end of last season, and it was surprising to everyone because he was in the middle of a season when he was running at the top. I met Yang Hee-jong, who announced his sudden retirement, at the Anyang Gymnasium after the East Asian Super League (EASL) was over.
