Lee Chae-eun (23, 171cm) is gradually melting into KB Stars.
Cheongju KB Stars, which started off-season training the fastest among the six WKBL teams, went to Taiwan from the 22nd to the 31st of last month. After that, I took a short break and started hardening again from the 5th. The entire team is together except for Park Ji-soo and Kang I-seul, who have been convened for the women’s basketball team, and Kim Min-jung and Lee Yoon-mi, who are in rehabilitation. Lee Chae-eun, who moved from Bucheon Hanawon Q to KB Stars, is also sweating in her new team.
Lee Chae-eun said, “It has been more than a month since I came to the team, and he is adjusting well. Since his rookie days, he has a lot of affection for Hana 1Q. When he heard the news of the trade, he was saddened by the thought of parting ways with her sisters, but he thought it was a good opportunity and took it positively.”
Lee Chae-eun has a relationship with KB Stars director Kim Wan-soo. From 2018 to 2021, he worked together as a coach and player at Hana 1Q. This trade also reflected the opinion of manager Kim Wan-soo, who wanted Lee Chae-eun. 먹튀검증
“The director makes the atmosphere so much fun. He took care of me a lot when he was Hana 1Q coach. Maybe it’s because we’ve been together before, but I think I’m a little more comfortable now. The coach said, ‘Let’s win the competition and do well.’” Lee Chae-eun said.
Lee Chae-eun, who debuted in 2018, has yet to show a significant presence on his professional stage. In order for him to consistently appear on the court at KB Stars, he must overcome competition from guards such as Heo Ye-eun, Sim Seong-young, Shin Ye-young, and Lee Hye-joo.
Lee Chae-eun said, “I think it is a new opportunity, but I have to overcome the competition to play. He tries to pay more attention to defense because he has a lot of older sisters on the team who can play offense. I will do my best to help the team by showing good performances in defense from training.”
