The game is over and all the players have left the court, but one player can’t leave. He’s Lim Sung-jin, 24, who is always the last to leave whenever there’s a game at his home stadium.
KEPCO’s Lim is nicknamed the Prince of Suwon. Anyone who has ever watched a KEPCO game at the Suwon Indoor Stadium knows why he is called the 토토사이트 Prince of Suwon.
Lim was drafted by the KEPCO with the second overall pick in the first round of the 2020-2021 rookie draft as a junior at Sungkyunkwan University. He was already known as a good-looking volleyball player since he was in Jecheon High School, where he resembled actor Kim Soo-hyun. Not only was he good-looking, but his skills were top-notch, and many teams wanted him. Even before he entered the professional ranks, he was considered an outside hitter with both offensive and defensive skills and was touted as the future of Korean volleyball.
However, he’s had one of the best seasons of his career and has established himself as the team’s ace. He was named MVP for the first time in his career after the second round and is now the domestic ace of KEPCO. Many female fans flock to the volleyball court to watch him because he’s more handsome than a celebrity, and he’s just as skilled. When she makes a successful attack, the screams of female fans fill the court.
This was the case at the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Men’s Round 4 match between KEPCO and OK Financial Group at Suwon Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do, Gyeonggi-do, on June 6.
KEPCO got off to a good start by taking the first set, but they couldn’t stop Leo’s 39-point attack and lost the set 1-3 (25-22 22-25 18-25 19-25). Lim Sung-jin battled back with 11 points (52.94% attack percentage), including two aces, but had to hang his head in shame as his team lost.
But Lim didn’t have time to mourn. After the match, many female fans came down to the court to see her and chanted her name. She went to the stands to thank them, sign autographs and take pictures with them, and was one of the last to leave work that day. Park Yong-taek, a former baseball player, also visited the stadium with his daughter and took a photo with Lim.
Lim’s popularity is evident in his 960,000 social media followers. Fans from overseas even travel to volleyball venues to watch him play. He is now one of the most popular men in the V-League, not just in Suwon, but anywhere in the country.
