A month has passed since the championship match. Steps in which players build their bodies little by little. However, everything is new to Park Seong-jin. It’s the first time he’s had an off-season since turning pro.

Park Seong-jin said, “I went on a trip to Hawaii with his teammates at the end of March. He then knew he was going to Japan. From then on, he personally trained for his skills and built his body in other ways as well. He doesn’t seem to be in bad shape.”
