‘Tragic play of fate’ Jeon Kwang-in screamed, and Seo Jae-deok lowered his head.

When a scream, not a roar, escaped from Jeon Kwang-in, who was 토토사이트always fighting and bright, the stadium cooled down in an instant. ‘Best friend’ Seo Jae-deok’s expression was full of guilt and regret. It was a truly tragic twist of fate.

Seo Jae-deok and Jeon Kwang-in are ‘soulmates’ representing the volleyball world. The two players, who were two years senior and junior at Sungkyunkwan University, joined KEPCO45 (currently Korea Electric Power Corporation) side by side in 2011 with Seo Jae-deok and Kwang-in Jeon in 2013, so they became pros. The two players played a big role together, turning a team that had been in the bottom of the ten thousand years into a competitive team, and their friendship gradually grew stronger. In the 2016-2017 V-League All-Star Game, he even wore a uniform with the words ‘Envy Seo Jae-deok (Jeon Kwang-in)’ and ‘I’m not envious Jeon Kwang-in (Seo Jae-deok)’ respectively.

Even though Jeon Kwang-in moved to Hyundai Capital in 2018, Seo Jae-deok and Jeon Kwang-in are so inseparable that each other is always mentioned in each interview. When KEPCO and Hyundai Capital face each other, the two players always exchange greetings before the game, chatting or joking around.

The same was true ahead of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Men’s Round 6 match between Hyundai Capital and KEPCO, which took place on the 9th at Yu Gwan-sun Gymnasium in Cheonan. Before the match, the two players had a friendly conversation. However, once the match started, the two players faced each other fiercely. The heat on the court was very hot as it was a head-to-head confrontation between Hyundai Capital and KEPCO, who were in an all-out battle to reclaim first and third place, respectively.

During the exciting first set, an unexpected accident occurred. With KEPCO leading 19-17, Seo Jae-deok used a light quick open and Jeon Kwang-in tried to block. The ball hit by Jeon Kwang-in’s hand was narrowly digged by Jo Geun-ho and the moment when the rally wanted to continue, referee Nam Young-soo hurriedly raised his hand and declared a replay.

The reason was Jeon Kwang-in’s injury. In the process of landing after the attack, Seo Jae-deok’s right foot slightly crossed the center line, and Jeon Kwang-in, who was landing after blocking, stepped on it with his right foot and broke his ankle. Jeon Kwang-in screamed and collapsed onto the court, and referee Nam Young-soo quickly called the medical team.

Cheonan fans chanted Jeon Kwang-in’s name and waited for Jeon Kwang-in to wake up, but Jeon Kwang-in continued to complain of pain and couldn’t get up, so a stretcher was brought into the court. Seo Jae-deok’s expression as he watched this was full of guilt and regret, and as Jeon Gwang-in continued to groan in pain, Seo Jae-deok wrapped his head around his head and shook his head.  

After a while, Jeon Gwang-in stood up without relying on a stretcher, supported by his teammates, and exited the court with a determined expression. In the appearance of Jeon Kwang-in, who called Kim Myung-gwan and delivered what he had to say until the last moment, his sense of responsibility and desire to win were conveyed intact.
